QUICK SNACK- Better than Snickers Medjool Dates

IMG_2335
When trying to consistently eat healthy, it’s important to have quick snacks in your arsenal for when you’re on the go or having a serious sweet-tooth craving. These creamy chocolatey little guys, I swear, taste better than a snickers bar! You won’t believe something so simple can be so delicious. I used 1/2 cup of hazelnuts and 1/2 cup macadamia nuts blended with 3/4 cups water and a sprinkle of salt in my Vitamix  to make the nut butter, but you can use any kind as long as it’s unsweetened. The ideal way to make homemade nut butters is to soak and dehydrate the nuts first, there is a great tutorial here. If you are using store-bought look for labels that have only nuts and optionally salt in the ingredient list. These also make great party appetizers or mini desserts. I hope you love this quick and healthy treat! xJacq

Ingredients:    per person

2 Medjool Dates
2 tsp your favorite Nut Butter
1 tsp Raw Cacao Nibs

Split the dates with your thumb and remove the pits. Stuff a teaspoon of nut butter into each date and sprinkle the top with cacao nibs, pressing gently to get them to stick.
