by Rebecca Lujan

Beautiful and simple vegan treats!

Supplies

  • 10 Organic medjool dates
  • ⅓ Cups Oatmeal (Used instant maple by three sisters)
  • 2 Tablespoons Ground flax seed
  • ½ Cups Raw almond butter (mine was maple flavor)
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Step 2

    Gently slice top of date lengthwise.

    Step 3

    Remove pit.

    Step 4

    Repeat to all the dates and discard the pits.

    Step 5

    In a bowl, add 1/3 cup oats. I used an instant flavored kind, but plain is just as well.

    Step 6

    Add 2 tablespoons ground flax seeds.

    Step 7

    Add 1/2 cup or more raw almond butter. This one was maple flavored, but the date is so sweet that plain is just as good.

    Step 8

    Mix all ingredients well, making sure it is as moist as possible. Filling should have the consistency of play doh and not too sticky.

    Step 9

    Spread open the date wide, but be careful not to split in half. Makes a nice little boat.

    Step 10

    Take a heaping tablespoon of mixture.

    Step 11

    Stuff the date with filling mixture and push the sides of the date in to help hold in the filling. Plus: it makes them look pretty;)

    Step 12

    Finished platter of energy snacks. Ready to eat or refrigerate for a quick energy boost or healthy snack. Pretty appetizer for a party too!

    Step 13

    Recipe can easily be changed by adding or swapping ingredients for more high energy foods such as chopped nuts, seeds, wheat germ, carrots, etc.
