Discovering that dates can replace refined sugar in many recipes has been life changing! While I still use lightly processed sugars sparingly, medjool dates are by far my favorite way to sweeten all of my favorite treats! Surprisingly, they do not impart any noticeable flavor when mixed with other ingredients like chocolate, pumpkin, or peanut butter. They are the healthiest and most versatile sweetener I have come across.
From mixing them into baked goods to blending them into my favorite matcha latte, I incorporate medjool dates into my diet on a daily basis. I’m excited to share with you 10 of my all-time favorite date sweetened recipes. All of these recipes are vegan, healthy, and incredibly delicious!
