Medjool Dates: Recovery Snack

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!

 Ingredients

Instructions

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.

Enjoy!
