I know what you're thinking, dates may be healthy and delicious, but how do I use them to replace sugar in my recipes? We've got you covered!
Here's a bite-sized explanation of the difference between date syrup, date sugar and date paste. All products are made with one simple ingredient by the way: dates!
Date Syrup: similar in consistency to honey or maple syrup, date syrup can be used to sweeten coffee, add to roasted veggies or substitute white sugar in recipes for a moist dessert.
Date Sugar: dried, ground dates perfect for substituting white sugar in baking. Substitute 1:1 and decrease dry ingredients called for in the recipe by 25%.
Date Paste: pitted and pureed dates great for thickening smoothies, making energy balls or this year's pecan pie!
