In a small saucepan, warm the honey and the majority of the thyme leaves. Set aside while you prepare the dates with a pinch of salt.
Cut a slit lengthwise into the side of each date using a tiny knife. Remove the stone and replace it with an almond that has been blanched. Spread some goat's cheese into the void, then place on a dish, cheese-side up.
To serve, drizzle with honey and top with a few extra thyme leaves.
