Walnut Date Dip

ermegawd. This dip is amazing. Amazing on apples, amazing with fruits, amazing by itself, amazing in my Walnut Date Dip | Busy B Cooksbirthday suit. In a plane, in a car, from here to there, I could eat it most anywhere. Ok, enough channeling Dr. Seuss.

The dip is awesome AND it is Whole30, Paleo, Daniel Diet and Vegan complaint. Pin this. Go to the store, get ingredients and come home to make it. You can thank me later.


  • 8oz of dates
  • 8oz walnuts
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cups of water
  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil


Combine water, cinnamon and dates in small sauce pan. Bring to boil then reduce to simmer for about 10 minutes, or until the dates are really soft. Allow to cool for a few minutes before adding to food processor.

Add slightly cooled dates and liquid to food processor. Combine to a smooth texture creating “date honey.” Remove to bowl or storage container.

Place walnuts in the food processor (no need to clean from the date honey). Process the walnuts for one minute or so, then begin to slowly add the coconut oil.

After all the oil is adding, continue mixing. The walnut “butter” will pull from the sides and begging forming into a ball.

Add into the food processor about 3/4 the date honey. Process for about 30 seconds, until a light and fluffy texture is achieved.

Serve with apples, banana or other dipping fruits!
