There’s no doubt about it – we LOVE Organic Medjool Dates!
Medjool dates are such a delicious, soft, juicy and sweet snack on their own...and although they are high in (natural) sugar, dates are welcomed in moderation as an alternative to refined sugar because they are also high in fibre and are a great source of essential minerals.
Organic Medjool dates are also an incredibly versatile ingredient when preparing both sweet and savoury dishes! If you need ideas for how to use up a heavenly stash of dates, here are 10 easy ways:
Blend them into energy snack bars or bliss balls. Dates are the perfect for consistency for binding everything together and they're naturally sweet - no added sweeteners necessary!
Use them to make a delicious base for raw cakes, tarts or slices.
Stuff them with goodness such as nuts, coconut, diced fresh fruit, nut butter, cacao nibs, soft cheeses or crystalised ginger...mmm
