I think this is the fastest recipe I have ever written and shared.
But do not let those three ingredients fool you. The flavor and enjoyment you will get with each bite are out of this world.
The holiday season is upon us, and we all look for a great way to show our love to our family and friends by means of sharing our favorite desserts and treats.
What more fun than making those?
What are the dates?
Dates are the fruit of palm trees. Mostly growing in the Middle East, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and Iran.
The most common are Medjool dates and Deglet Noor, however, there are over 300 varieties grown.
Pitted or unpitted, either way, they are just so flavorful little morsels. However, if you can buy unpitted it will save you so much time to prepare this dish.
Health benefits of dates
A good source of vitamins and minerals, dates are high on sulfites found in dried dates that can be of a health concern.
Medjool contains antioxidants and nutrients that may lower your risk of heart disease, promote digestion and support heart health. Do however consult with your medical advice from your doctor.
Also, anti-inflammatory benefits are attributed to this divine little morsel of sweetness.
Fresh dates are hand-picked due to how delicate they are thus making them a bit more expensive.
Natural sweeteners also know not to play havoc with your blood sugar levels
I love those little morsels of dried fruits and I have been known to eat a box all by myself, just a bit of caution as they can carry about of calories. But then it is the holidays so why not indulge a bit, right? There is always the gym that we can work out all the extra ounces.
I wish I could give some more tips on making this super quick recipe, but as you can see there isn’t much I can tell you. My only advice is to eat in moderation.
Place the 1/4 cup sugar in a small dish. Roll the dates in the sugar.
