Snack Idea:Almond Butter Stuffed Dates with Coconut and Cinnamon!

Dates have quickly become one my favorite snacks! They're practically like nature's candy! I strongly reccomend
using medjool dates, because they are super creamy, think and sweet. They are waaaay better and creamier! Dates are rich in fiber, potassium, and even copper and magnesium. They provide quick energy and are a perfect quick snack! I love eating them plain, but dressing them up a bit with some almond or peanut butter and your favorite toppings totally takes them to the next level! They remind me of eating a peanut butter cup or caramel candy! 

The Super Easy Steps:

1. Open dates with your hands (they should be very soft) and remove the pit.
2. Spread a thin layer 
of almond or peanut butter in each date.
3. Sprinkle with coconut flakes and cinnamon or your favorite toppings!

Other topping ideas:
  • Cacao nibs
  • Chocolate chips 
  • Blueberries
  • Goji berries
