Dates with Nuts and Honey

Trying to avoid processed food, which includes all supermarket snacks, I was looking for something sweet with lots of kcals. Inspired by a recipe (Roman Stuffed Dates) I tried a quick and economic version.

Cutting dates in half, removing the stone, pressing nuts in them and then adding a little bit of honey (easier if the honey is not that thin but more crystalized).

Not a food photographer either 😉

While the Roman recipe called for pepper and salt, I ate them as they were. Tastes very very good and — if the three ingredients are natural — they are probably healthier than the processed crap.

Highly recommended.
