This easy to make snack is an excellent source of potassium due to the dates and contains good fats from the walnuts.

Stuffed dates are very popular as a starter or for brunch. For a change, the sweet fruits can also be filled with a mixture of cream cheese and oregano. Additionally, you can use dried plums as a delicious substitute for dates.
