I have found that dates can make a manic Monday night enjoyable and a terrible Tuesday morning exciting. I think dates are delightful at tea-time or lunch. Dates are decadently sweet. And, these days, I look for any excuse to enjoy them with almond butter. By the way, y'all, I am talking about the fruit and not dates of a romantic nature.
Now, I've loved dates since my teen years when we lived in Abu Dhabi, where date palm trees lined the streets.
But, my love for dates and almond butter started in my early blogging years after I saw the combination on other food bloggers' posts.
Recently, I've been looking for any excuse to enjoy my favorite snack.
> If I plan on running three miles, then dates and almond butter are my pre-workout snack.
> If I'm going to be staying up late, then dates and almond butter are my fuel with some coffee.
> If I have the breakfast blues, then dates and almond butter go into my bowl of oats.
And, speaking of my bowl of oats, that bowl of oats is what inspired these Easy Date Almond Butter Bars.
