How to make Date Paste: The perfect natural sweetener

 Date paste is my all time favorite sweetener for baking. Made with 2 ingredients and a food processor and you’re all set to get baking.

I’m in love with date paste and so happy about it!  So much so, that I’ve been using it almost exclusively in my latest recipes. This way the sugar in a recipe is only coming from dates, making it easy to consume with no side effects. It’s also extremely easy to make.

How to make date paste  

Ingredients
8 oz dates (I used this whole bag)
Hot Water

Place dates in medium sized bowl and cover with hot water until they get nice & soft. (If you have more time, you can cover with colder water and let sit overnight). Pour the dates along with the water into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. This will make roughly 2 cups of date paste so you’ll have some left over for lots of fun things like spreading on toast, or using as a sweetener for anything at all.

Substitutions
In the recipes I’m doing lately, I’m using one cup of date paste in place of 1 cup of sugar.
