I have a super big sweet tooth and while I give in to it occasionally, I’m always looking for healthier versions of classic favorites to satisfy my cravings while fueling my training and recovery. As a mom, it’s super important to me that I start my boys on a path of making healthy choices. For athletes, Medjool dates are an excellent post workout recovery snack. They have a high amount of potassium which supports muscle fuel and recovery. Did you know Medjool dates have 50% more potassium by weight than bananas? That’s a whole lot of potassium in one small package. Try this recipe using my favorite Bard Valley Natural Delights Medjool dates and let me know what you think!
- 1 cup walnuts
- 10 large Bard Valley Natural Delights Medjool dates pitted and chopped
- 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1-3 teaspoons water
Simply blend the walnuts in a food processor until they form a crumbly mixture, then add the dates and blend again before adding the cacao and honey.
Place the mixture into a baking tray and either refrigerate for 3 hours or freeze for one to allow them to set. Then keep them in the fridge for freshness.
