I’m fond of healthy snacks and the Daniel’s Pulse Recipe you’re about to read is definitely a winner.
If you’re unfamiliar with Pulse, the Biblical Daniel considered it God’s perfect food…
So Daniel went to the guard Melzar whom Ashpenaz had placed in charge of him and his three friends, saying: “Test us for ten days. Give us pulse to eat and water to drink. Then compare us with the young men who are eating the food of the royal court, and base your decision of how we look.”
He agreed to let them try it for ten days. At the end of ten days, they looked healthier and stronger than all those who had been eating the royal food. So from then on the guard let them continue to eat pulse and drink water.

And now for …
Daniel’s Pulse Recipe
1 cup dates coarsely chopped to 1/4″ pieces
1 cup prunes coarsely chopped to 1/4″ pieces
3/4 cup apricots coarsely chopped to 1/4″ pieces
1/2 cup cranberries coarsely to 1/4″ pieces
3/4 cup almonds chopped to 1/4″ pieces
3 Tbs peanut butter
4 Tbs sesame seeds
In a large bowl combine all fruits and knead (may want to use gloves, as it does get very sticky). Once well mixed, add almonds and sesame seeds and knead again. Finally add peanut butter and knead until thoroughly combined.
Oh man, that’s a good recipe. Try it and see if you don’t agree.
