There is really no appetizing way to present these pictures to you, because dates stuffed with almonds are just plain unattractive. But I did the best I could because I really want you to try this and not be completely grossed out:
People, I'm telling you, this is magic. The dates are chewy and sweet and the almonds are crunchy and salty, and we all know what that means: a snack match made in heaven. It's the best of both worlds...AND it's healthy!
I've heard from a few people that almond-stuffed dates are the best thing since sliced banana bread, but I didn't really believe it because it didn't sound all that appealing to me. Dates and I are hardly BFF's and while I enjoy a good almond every now and then I'm not partial to snacking on them. If healthy snacks are my aim I'm much more likely to reach for a piece of fresh fruit, a cup of Greek yogurt, or things dipped in hummus. And considering almond-stuffed dates a legit dessert option? Blasphemy. If it's not chocolate, it's not dessert.
But I've officially been won over...because these things are addictive and incredibly good. I even eat them for dessert...with a square of dark chocolate, of course.
Seriously...it's the best combination since PB&J. Just try it and see!
