When I began living a PALEO & WHOLE30 lifestyle, I craved dessert recipes using brown sugar.  I really felt like I was missing out.  Sometimes I would compromise and buy a brown sugar substitute sweetener.  But these sweeteners are unnatural and often very expensive.  I remember the day I discovered date paste.  I was so thrilled to know I could utilize a fruit that is so nutritious and use it to replace brown sugar and maple syrup.  I love date paste on grain-free toast! 

NUTRITIONAL VALUE:

This recipe calls for homemade date paste which is allowable on both a Paleo and Whole30 diet.  The paste is super easy to make and nutritious.  Did you know that dates are higher in polyphenols than any of the most commonly consumed fruits and vegetables?  Polyphenols neutralize free radicals, helping to reduce the damage caused by inflammation.   Inflammation is directly associated with heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, Alzheimer’s, and a list of autoimmune diseases.  Dates are also a good source of various vitamins and minerals, and fiber and contain calcium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, and zinc?

RECIPE TASTE PROFILE:

Date paste is sweet.  That’s its best quality!  So any dessert or dish you create using date paste will require a wine with sweetness to match.  If the dish or dessert is just slightly sweet, you can include an off-dry white wine with dinner.  If making a dessert, stick to wines with more sweetness like Tawny Port, late-harvest whites, and even Canadian Icewine!
