Dates are delicious fruits from the date palm, which are widely used in the preparation of various dishes and beverages. They have a distinctive sweet taste, making them very popular among those with a sweet tooth. However, they can be utilized not only in their whole fruit form, but also in the form of date paste or date syrup, which serves as a great alternative to the traditional sugar

What can you prepare with dates?

Among the most popular varieties are the Deglet Nour and Medjool dates. Thanks to their sweet flavour, they can be used in the preparation of breakfasts, snacks, and desserts. They are also versatile enough to be used in gluten-free, lactose-free, and vegan treats, particularly during Christmas baking sessions. The consistency of dates helps bind and keep together various ball-shaped treats and other goodies, making them a perfect addition to festive cookie platters.

Dates also work exceptionally well in creating various raw desserts, providing excellent structure to no-bake cake bases. You can also use them to make homemade, no-bake energy bars. Simply mix blended dates or date paste with ingredients like oats, nuts, seeds, cocoa, protein powder (you can opt for a vegan one too), and other healthy components to create a compact mixture. Afterwards, shape it into your desired form (using a mould, if needed), and your protein or energy-packed raw bars are ready for the taking.

Sweet treats made from dates are portable and can be taken anywhere with you. They therefore serve as an ideal snack for an energy boost or a dessert paired with an afternoon cup of coffee.
