Dates with cashew butter

We used to pack dates and cashew butter for hikes when we were kids. They would be all gooey and squashed when we reached summit and pulled them out, but their appearance didn’t seem to have any impact on the taste. I now also eat them at lower elevations with French press coffee on a rainy day. In general, nuts are the ideal snack because the protein and fat give you energy that sustains you much longer than an afternoon sugar rush. These must be made with the freshest, plumpest and stickiest dates you can find. Otherwise it’s a sin to waste perfectly good nut butter. Oh, and grownups share.
