Have a sweet tooth? So do I!! These peanut butter dates hit the sweet spot for me, and I know they will for you as well. I made them on vacation and, you guys, I seriously passed up ice cream for dates!
Dates are pretty healthy too, so you can feel good about eating them. They are a great source of carbs, high in fiber and contain disease-fighting antioxidants.
I bought these dates at Trader Joe's but you can get them at any grocery store. Be sure your peanut butter is natural so you don't add any unnecessary sugar to these already sweet treats. I topped with some dark chocolate chips for extra pizazz, but that's totally optional.
To make them, slice open each date and remove the pit. Stuff with peanut butter (creamy or crunchy, up to you). Add chocolate chips if desired. Pop in the fridge for a bit. When ready to eat, sprinkle with a little bit of pink Himalayan salt. ENJOY! XO
Food is fuel.
I love to cook and bake recipes that incorporate healthy whole foods and those nutritious macro and micronutrients into our daily diets. I also like to make treats though, because let's face it, everyone loves a good sweet now and then! My favorite part about cooking, though, is sharing my latest recipes with others. ENJOY! XO
