You Can Do What With Dates? 10 Decadent Date Desserts

LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :

Dates were something I never really ate when I was younger. They honestly seemed kind of weird and reminded me entirely too much of prunes. But once I started to cook with plant-based ingredients, I recognized how delicious and versatile dates could be. They are not only sweet but also host a variety of health benefits thanks to the significant amount of minerals inside. I never imagined the ways you could use dates until I personally experimented with making a raw dessert that called for a date and nut based crust – then I fell in love. Not only are dates a natural binding agent due to their sticky texture, but they are also sweet and, when paired with nuts, create a fantastic crust. Check out this recipe for Raw Matcha Coconut Cream Pie to see what I’m talking about!

Dates aren’t just for making raw crusts however. That’s not even the beginning! Since they have a lot of sugar, you can blend them up and make a caramel for tarts, candy bars, or the center to brownies or chocolate cups. You could also create a delicious fudge-like dessert using nuts, dates, and other wholesome ingredients! With dates, the combination of ingredients that you can mix in your date desserts is what makes them even more versatile. There are so many things that can be created with dates.

I could go on and on, or we could just jump right in and discover the decadence of dates in desserts!
