If you love these nutritious bites, you might also love: honey walnut granola bar bites, no bake protein brownie bites, and healthy chocolate banana muffins.

January, for many, means trying to make healthier choices:

  • Maybe that means exercising more.
  • Maybe that means taking more “me” time.
  • Maybe that means making healthier food choices.
  • Or maybe it’s a combination of all three!

What gets in my way every time?

Snacks!!

I LOVE snacks (and dessert) so much, but I find it REALLY difficult to find nutritious snacks that are:

  1. Um, actually made with nutritious ingredients
  2. Tasty
  3. Quick and easy <– because who has the time for time consuming snacks?

Well, my friends, look no further, because today’s recipe: walnut and greek yogurt stuffed dates covers all of the above.

They’re nutritious, they’re SO tasty, and they’re ridiculously quick and easy.

Who’s ready to conquer the new year?!

I actually really love these stuffed dates once they’ve had a chance to chill in the fridge.

A sweet, chewy date stuffed with a tangy cream cheese filling, topped with a hearty walnut, and drizzled in honey and maybe a little dark chocolate . . .
