Recipe For Almond Butter Filled Dates

Snack Attack: Almond Butter and Granola Filled Dates

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.

i love dates and one of my fav is medjool! unlike other dates, 1 medjool is enough for me. huge! but it is quite expensive here in my country. definitely will try this out whenever I get my hands on medjool :)
