These bite-sized dates are stuffed to the brim and boast a nice crunch from the chopped almonds!
24 Pitted Dates
4 ounces Goat Cheese, softened
1/4 cup Finely chopped almonds
1 tablespoon Honey
Salt and Pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
In a small mixing bowl, combine the softened goat cheese, chopped almonds, honey, salt, and black pepper, and mix well.
Cut a slit into one side of each date and gently pry it open. Stuff each date with a small spoonful of the goat cheese mixture.
Place the stuffed dates on a baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for about 8 to 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the dates are slightly crispy.
Once baked, transfer the stuffed dates to a serving platter and server warm. Enjoy!
