Snickers Dates

This makes the best after-dinner snack or anytime snack really, and it’s perfectly macronutrient balanced helping stabilise blood sugars.

Dates are rich in magnesium, and vitamin A & B complex and are also a source of insoluble dietary fibre. Not only that, they are a great source of antioxidants and a source of carbohydrates (perfect for helping build milk supply if breastfeeding). 

In addition to this, dates have been shown to positively affect birth outcomes when consumed in the last month of pregnancy, helping to ripen the cervix in preparation for labour.

It’s also the perfect one-handed snack making it ideal for breastfeeding (IYKYK)

Here’s how to make these peanut-choc coated dates
