mmmm… I love honey and fresh medjole dates and feta cheese and sunflowers seeds. And that is basically your ingredient list! (Hopefully needless to say but just in case, don’t makes this if you or someone that might try it could be allergic to any of this.)
Here’s what I used…
12 pitted dates
1/4 to 1/2 cup of sunflower seeds without shells chopped
1/4 to 1/2 of a package of President Feta Cheese smushed up (obviously, I don’t cook much LOL)
Honey and LOTS of it!
PreHeat the oven to 450degrees. (These don’t have to be heated but I like it with the cheese a little melted)
Line a cupcake pan with squares of aluminum foil.
Pit the dates: I did this by cutting length wise on the top of the date and the seed easily came out.
Chop up the sunflower kernels.
Smoosh (or crumble) the Feta Cheese.
Mix the sunflower and feta cheese. I did this right in the container the cheese came in because why get one more dish messy to have to clean!
Stuff each date with the cheese and sunflowers.
After filling up the entire muffin pan with these delightful snacks, I drizzled a bunch of honey all over them. Mmmmm. Then I baked them for about 5-10 minutes. I just kept watch to see when the cheese looked like it was melting a little bit.
Let these cool for a while because they could be really really hot. So delicious!
Let me know if you tried these out. My family isn’t into dates. Some of my kids like sunflower seeds and some don’t and all of them are not fans of feta cheese. Which was fine by this momma! More delicious dates for me! 🙂
