Paleo Stuffed Dates are made with 5 healthy ingredients and are super easy to throw together. This healthy paleo candy recipe calls for dates, pistachios, orange juice, orange zest, and a pinch of sea salt. I think of fruit as nature’s candy and I love using it to make healthy dessert recipes.
Dates were first cultivated in the Middle East and have been a culinary staple in that part of the world for thousands of years. Now, dates are used throughout the world to add flare to savory dishes and to sweeten desserts. They are also eaten plain since they are so rich, delicious, and healthy.
Dates are very sweet, but since they are an excellent source of energy, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, they are considered a healthy food. I hope you love this Paleo Stuffed Dates recipe as much as we do!
- In a food processor, pulse pistachios, orange juice, orange zest, and salt
- With a sharp knife, make a slit on one side of each date and remove the pit
- Place filling in dates
With its delicate blend of flavors, this dessert of Middle Eastern origin is incredibly satisfying and tasty! Here are some of my other paleo fruit desserts for you!
