My friend Nadia showed me this snack idea and man oh man is it ever good. The sweet dates and the nutty peanut butter are a match made in heaven! Especially considering my PB obsession. On a nutrition note the dates are a good source of fibre and carbohydrate to put “gas” in your tank while the peanut butter give you protein and helps give you “fuel efficiency” (keeps you full longer). But aside from all that science – it’s just plain tasty. Try it out. Seriously.
Dried dates – I found a square container of loose dates at my local Walmart and also in our grocery store in the produce section. They are still moist inside!
Peanut butter, almond butter, sun butter…..I like the natural stuff without the added fat, sugar and salt
Dip a few dates in the peanut butter and enjoy!
(Note: 3-4 would do for a good snack, it’s fairly high calorie-wise so watch your serving size!)
