Date paste makes a sugar substitute for your favorite baked goods!
As a fairly recent Medjool dates lover, I do believe I’ve only touched the surface of what can be accomplished with dates. While I was in Yuma visiting the date farms, we talked a lot about date paste and the wonderful things you can do with it.
It’s now become a staple in my refrigerator and I try to substitute as much refined sugar as I can with it! It’s an amazing clean-eating sweetener. Some ways I’ve used it so far:
- Sweetener in smoothies.
- Spread on toast with peanut butter.
- Mixed with oatmeal.
- Used in baked goods.
