PB&J Stuffed Dates
 

Ingredients you'll need:

    1. Joolies Dates
      • You can't stuff a date without a date! We love using our pitted option for these, but whole work just as well! Just be sure to remove the pit๐Ÿ˜‰If you're running low on your stock of dates, you can buy some in bulk right here or in our 2 pack right here!
    2. Peanut Butter
      • Creamy or crunchy, either one gets the job done! Whatever your pick is, we recommend using a peanut butter with no added oils or sugars. Feel free to swap in a different nut/seed butter if so desired. Some of our favorites are 365 by Whole Foods and Spread The Love.
    3. Fresh Strawberries (or favorite jelly)
      • For a totally refined sugar free snack, muddled fresh strawberries are a quick and easy swap for your regular jelly. Plus strawberries contain potent antioxidant power and have been known to help reduce inflammation.
