Dates have so many health benefits. They are a good source of protein, potassium and vitamins, just to name a few. They are a great energy booster since they contain natural sugars like glucose and fructose. For that reason, you will always find dates on my kitchen counter top instead of cookies or chips. I like to stuff them with walnuts to add a little bit of a crunch and many other nutritional bonuses such as omega-3 and vitamins E. If your kids are not allergic to nuts, then this is a delicious and healthy snack you can serve your family. You can make a plate in no time, leave it on the counter and see these beauties disappear. You can also serve stuffed dates as an appetizer or even desert.
