Walnuts, cashew cheese, and dates, all in one snack? Sounds a bit odd at first, but trust us — it works! These delicious, bite-sized morsels are salty, sweet, crunchy, and chewy. Plus, they're loaded with protein and fiber. You will have a hard time eating just one!

Walnut and Cashew Cheese-Stuffed Dates [Vegan]



  • 15-20 dates
  • Cashew cheese (recipe below)
  • 15-20 walnuts

For the Cashew Cheese:

  • 1 cup cashews, soaked
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened soy milk


  1. Combine cashew cheese ingredients in your blender until perfectly smooth. If mixture seems too thick to be able to squirt into dates, add a little more milk to thin it out.
  2. Cut a slit into one side of each date.
  3. Pour and scoop cashew cheese into a plastic bag or squirt bottle. Cut one corner off of the plastic bag if using that so you can pipe the cheese into the dates.
  4. Squirt a sizable amount of cheese into a date, then stuff a walnut in right after. Continue this process until all dates are filled with cheese and a walnut.
