This recipe comes to us from Cheryl Sternman Rule of 5 Second Rule

Makes one serving


  • 2 plump Medjool dates, pitted and sliced

  • 1 piece of Dave's Killer Bread, toasted (Thin-Sliced makes great Sexy Toast!)

  • 1-1/2 teaspoons coconut oil

  • 1/4 teaspoon cocoa powder

  • 1 tablespoon toasted, sliced almonds

Note: You can toast your almonds by shaking them back and forth in a dry skillet over medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes


  1. Place the dates in a small bowl. Add boiling water just to cover. Let stand a minute or so, then drain and pat gently dry.

  2. Spread your toast with the coconut oil. Sift the cocoa powder on top. Layer on the plumped dates, then the toasted almonds.
