Dessert Dates

If you haven’t noticed, I’m a huge fan of dates. They taste so sweet and delicious all by themselves. I like to use dates as sweeteners in recipes instead of any form of added sugar. Unlike straight sweetener such as cane sugar, coconut sugar, maple syrup or even honey, dates are sweet but contain fiber. Fiber is the indigestible are of food that are associated with several potential health benefits. Fiber also helps keep you feeling full and satisfied.

These stuffed dates are my favorite little dessert pieces. They take about 10 seconds to make and offer the perfect amount of sweetness after a meal. After dinner, I always crave something sweet, but I don’t typically have a lot of sweets around. These desserts are perfect to satisfy this sweet craving because they can be assembled quickly and provide just the right amount of sweetness.
