This is one of my all-time favorite snacks. So simple to make but so delicious and so nutritious. I cannot find a recipe that is simpler than this. Only two ingredients and takes less than 15 minutes to put together and pop into my watering mouth!
Walnuts probably don’t get the attention it deserves compared to almonds and cashews. But it is very important to know that walnuts are super beneficial to managing your cholesterol levels, compared to all the other nuts. They contain a lot of healthy fats, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. And let’s not forget that walnuts also contain a whole ton of antioxidants and vitamin E that your body needs for tissue repair and its fight against free radicals and damaging toxins. Studies have suggested that walnuts also contain a lot of health-promoting bacteria that can help your body maintain a healthy gut for better digestive health.
Despite their calories, dates contain some very essential vitamins and minerals in addition to a significant amount of fiber that your body needs. Fiber is essential for your digestive health because they prevent constipation and promotes regular bowel movements by contributing to the formation of stool. The fiber in dates have also been found to be beneficial for blood sugar control because it helps to slow digestion in your body. Dates are an excellent source of potassium, magnesium, copper, manganese, iron and vitamin B6. They are also very high in antioxidants that contribute to many of their health benefits.
So what is stopping you from trying this recipe? I really cannot think of any except maybe making that one trip to your local grocery store to get some dates!
