Date paste is a fantastic alternative to brown sugar in many baking contexts. The sugar they bring to the table comes with the nutrients in dates, making them a more nutritious option than pure sugar.

Tip: 12 dates will yield roughly 1 cup of paste. Freeze leftovers in ΒΌ cup increments for future use.

Ingredients

  • 12 Medjool dates, pitted
  • Warm water

Directions

  1. Cover dates with warm water. Let soak for 1 hour.
  2. Drain the water, reserving the liquid. Puree dates in a blender or food processor, using reserved soaking liquid to thin if needed.
