Snickers Dates

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!
I know it's not much but I want to thank everyone who has served and is serving our country. In particular, my Father, Grandfathers, Father-in-law, Aunt and Uncles. Thank you! You have a special place in my heart.
And thank you to those whose family members have served and serving! You have my prayers.
There is a way you can make your snickers and eat it too! They take three simple ingredients and only a minute to put together.
There is a raw alternative or if you prefer to not use chocolate chips. Mix 1/4 cup raw cashew butter, 2 tablespoons cocoa powder, and 1 tablespoon raw honey. Use this to spread on dates.
Although made healthier, these are still a treat. But with natural ingredients and good fats from nut butters, they make indulging guilt-free.

Plus, they are vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free and yummy! Use unsweetened sunflower seed butter for nut-free option. Try tahini for a different flavor and to tone down sweetness.
Snickers Dates
Soft medjool Dates
Chocolate chips (dairy-free if needed)
Cashew butter or Peanut butter (for more authentic snickers flavor)
Open dates on one side with knife or hands. Slide out pit. Spread date with nut butter of choice and top with chocolate chips.

And have a great weekend!
