Try Your Dates With A Little Bit of Nut Butter
October 15, 2015 9 Comments
It is very hard to find something that peanut butter doesn’t make better.
Okay, well I can think of a few things (especially if you are allergic to peanuts). But, apples, bananas, oatmeal, toast, and all sorts of cookies are transformed with some peanut butter.
Did I mention chocolate?
Last month, I visited Medjool date country and found out that Medjool dates are fresh fruit. One of the nights we were there the crew left a peanut butter stuffed date (dipped in chocolate and sea salt) on my pillow (in a box) as a night-time treat.
I was full from dinner but I am a sucker for a box on my pillow. I ate it and then realized that dates and peanut butter go together quite well. Yum!
When Natural Delights sent me a box of Medjool dates, I knew immediately what I was going to do with them – stuff them with peanut butter!
Wow! These are so good. They are fantastic with coffee and they hit my afternoon sweet craving. I think they would be wonderful with almond butter or simply a walnut stuffed inside the date.
Have you tried to stuff a date with peanut butter? Why not?
