I am not the greatest fan of almond butter, despite the fact that it is wonderfully nutritious. And I don’t much care for dates. But when you put the two together, some sort of tastebud-tantilizing magic happens. Who would have thought it?
Almond butter dates are deliciously sweet and temptingly gooey. And best of all, they are jam-packed with a whole host of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients. They make the perfect snack for youngsters with a sweet tooth, or an excellent pick me up for that afternoon slump.
So what healthy deliciousness do these babies contain? Dates are a fantastic source of fiber, vitamin B6, magnesium, iron, potassium, selenium, zinc, and unsaturated fatty acids. And because they are incredibly sweet, they are kid-friendly and a great way to satisfy a sweet tooth without any added sugars. Almond butter is an excellent source of protein and fiber. It also contains more vitamin E, magnesium, and iron than peanut butter.
And the best part? These almond butter date snacks are incredibly easy to make.
1. Make a small incision in each date and remove the pit.
2. Spoon in about 1 teaspoon of almond butter.
