Medjool Dates instead of Sugar!

Have you gotten on the date wagon? Medjool dates have become the super trendy sweetener and binder. But are they really any good? Well yes and no. They pack a lot of sugar. 60% chocolate has less than half the amount. However, since they are as dense with nutrients as they are calorie-dense they have a lot to offer. From potassium, to B6, niacin and fiber, and they also contain a small amount of iron. But more importantly they are low on the glycemic load meaning unlike regular sugars and chocolate, they won’t cause huge blood sugar spikes!

Yields 1 3/4 cups

Ingredients 2 cups (about 20 dates) pitted Natural Delights Medjool dates, coarsely chopped ½ cup very hot water

1. Place Medjool dates and water in a food processor.

2. Process until fairly smooth to make a coarse paste, or process longer to make a creamy paste, scraping down the sides if necessary.

3. Store tightly covered in the fridge for up to one month.

The paste can be used on a 1 to 1 ratio for sugar in recipes. They may make your recipe for say, cookies, a bit more cake like but they will still taste super sweet~
