Sometimes when it's snack time, I crave a sweet treat like a cookie or a slice of devil's food cake (it really does live up to its name), but those aren't exactly the healthiest choices, especially after a workout. A friend turned me on to this snack and now it's a new favorite of mine. It's simple and satisfyingly chewy and crunchy.
What you'll need:
1 Medjool date
1 tablespoon almond butter
1 tablespoon granola
What you do:
Cut the date in half and remove the pit. In a bowl, mix the almond butter and granola. Spoon half into each date half and enjoy.
