  • 12 fresh dates pitted
  • 1/2 cup goat cheese
  • 1/4 cup almonds finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup pistachios freshly chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • honey drizzle


  • Prepare the dates by slicing them lengthwise on one side, creating a small opening. Carefully remove the pits from each date, taking care not to split the date in half.
  • In a small bowl, mix the goat cheese until it becomes smooth and creamy.
  • Spoon about a tablespoon of goat cheese into each date, ensuring the cavity is filled evenly. You can use the back of the spoon to gently spread the goat cheese inside the date.
  • In another small bowl, combine the chopped almonds and pistachios.
  • Take each filled date and dip the exposed goat cheese side into the nut mixture, pressing gently to coat the cheese with the nuts. The nuts will stick to the cheese, creating a delicious and crunchy topping.
  • Sprinkle a pinch of paprika over each stuffed date, adding a touch of smoky flavor and a hint of color.
  • To serve, arrange the dates on a serving platter or individual plates. Drizzle honey over the top of the stuffed dates, adding a touch of sweetness to balance the flavors.
  • Enjoy the Goat Cheese Stuffed Dates with Almonds, Pistachios, and Honey as an appetizer, dessert, or a delicious snack.


Note: You can customize this recipe by adding other ingredients like coconut shavings or chocolate drizzle for additional flavor variations.
