From Eating Clean by Lisa Allen

cup almonds, finely chopped
cup walnuts, finely chopped

pound pitted dates, finely chopped or pureed in a food processor
Apple cider
teaspoon ginger
teaspoon cinnamon
Pepper
2 pinches cloves

1 apple any organic type will do, peeled and grated

Combine almonds and walnuts in a large bowl and set aside.

Mix dates with the apple cider, ginger, cinnamon, pepper and cloves. Stir the puree into the nut mixture.

Stir grated apple into the date mixture. Add cider as necessary so that the mixture is thick but spreadable.

Spread on rice cakes or wedges of fresh pear for a sweet treat. Add some almond butter, too, and you have your own Eating Clean version of the classic PB & J.
