 Goat Cheese Stuffed Dates

Goat Cheese Stuffed Dates Recipe

Ever since I stuffed dates with almond butter I have been in love with dates for a snack. Stuffing dates makes a quick and delicious snack. They’re an unusual but welcome item on charcuterie boards. And, they’re great pre or post workout or when you’re having a sweet craving.

Not only are they convenient, but dates are also nutrient dense and high in fiber.

There are only two simple ingredients pitted dates (because who wants to pit them yourself?) and goat cheese. You can substitute mascarpone, cream cheese, or blue cheese for the goat cheese.

All you need to do is get a sharp knife and slit one side of the date open. Using a teaspoon or your fingers, push goat cheese into the date and mash it together to close it.

I sprinkled flax seeds and chia seeds over the dates in the photos as a garnish. They don’t really have a taste but do add texture so add them if you want.

A note on Dates

Dates are wonderfully delicious and one of the most popular fruits packed with an impressive list of phyotnutrients, vitamins, and minerals that are essential for normal growth, development, and overall well-being. Dates are rich in fiber, an excellent source of iron and potassium. As well, dates are rich in minerals like calcium, manganese, copper, and magnesium. You can use Medjool dates or the more popular and cheaper Deglet Noor dates. I prefer Deglet Noor for stuffing.
