A quick and easy recipe for dates stuffed with a mixture of toasted walnuts and sesame seeds flavoured with cinnamon, orange zest and rose water. For the coating, I have used coconut flakes and pumpkin seeds, but any other nuts or seeds would work just fine here. They are great as a light dessert, a snack, or just anytime you feel like a nibble.
- Toast walnuts, and sesame seeds in a dry skillet until fragrant, about 5 minutes, and then remove them from the heat and set aside to cool.
- Place walnuts, sesame, cinnamon, sugar and orange zest in a coffee grinder. Process until you have a thick paste. Turn the paste into a bowl and stir in rose water.
- Fill each date with about a teaspoon of nut mixture. Brush with melted coconut oil and coat with coconut flakes or chopped pumpkin seeds.
