Salted Date & Almond Butter Sandwich 

This is barely a recipe, but it’s my new favorite sandwich.

2015-6-22 Date Sandwich
You only need a few ingredients:

2 slices of your favorite bread
natural almond butter
4 – 10 pitted dates
salt

I use sprouted Ezekiel bread, lightly toasted, and 1-ingredient almond butter from Costco. Spread the almond butter as thick as you want! I cut the pitted dates in half, so I only need 4 or 5 to cover the bread, but you could use them whole and squeeze in a few extra. Then sprinkle lightly with salt – pink Himalayan is my preference.

That’s it. And using natural almond butter & Ezekiel bread makes it oil free and perfect for a strict fasting day 😀

  1. I feel like dates are an acquired taste. I only had them a few times and I still don’t like them very much. Any idea how to eat them that even I can enjoy them? It’s mostly texture for me, I think.

    • I guess it depends on whether it’s the outside skin texture that bothers you, or the overall softness of dates. If it’s the overall texture, try stuffing them with walnuts or pecans to add a crunch (I also like stuffing them with peanuts together with chocolate chips!). If it’s the skin texture that bothers you, the sandwich is definitely the way to go. You get the taste of the date, but the texture of the bread.
