Replace the pit of a medjool date with a pecan half. Done.
How funny… I came up with the same recipe too! I have it for dessert whenever I have both dates and pecans on hand. Sometimes I go a little crazy and use an almond instead. Whoo-hoo!
This recipe is from The Date People. I hope they don’t think I’m infringing on their copyright by reprinting it. I just think everyone should eat dates, or eat more dates. As The Date People say on their Facebook page:
“They are extremely nutritious, higher in potassium than bananas, also rich in iron, calcium and vitamins. If you are looking to balance your acid/alkaline state, dates are more alkaline than almost any other food.”
If you’re like me and enjoy something sweet after a meal once in a while (or all the time), a couple of dates seems like a good dessert.
