HUMMUS STUFFED DATES

Whilst I absolutely adore the classic peanut butter filled dates, these HUMMUS STUFFED DATES are next level deliciousness!

They’re packed with the perfect balance of protein, fibre and healthy fats for optimum satisfaction, satiety and blood sugar stability. So you won’t be reaching for junk food, after just one or two. And they take just a minute to put together!

Dates are a good source of protein (2.5g per 100g), fibre, vitamins and mineral.  They’re an excellent source of potassium, which aids in blood pressure regulation, and also the essential minerals iron, zinc, magnesium and selenium which all help to boost the body’s immunity.

And chickpeas (the basis of hummus) and walnuts are packed with so many amazing nutrients (protein, fibre, healthy fats, omega-3 fatty acids), I could write a whole blog post about them!

These are the ultimate healthy craving satisfier or EASIEST EVER dessert or sweet treat to please a crowd (once Corona craziness is hopefully a distant memory)!
