Product Description

The Medjool Dates are the finest dates in the world. Dates are thought to be one of the world’s oldest cultivated fruits. Once reserved solely for the pleasure of the Moroccan High Court, these gorgeous dates are now grown in a few select California and Arizona valleys.

These dates are grown in USA. Each date is handpicked to ensure its exceptional quality and size. Medjool Dates are truly the cream of a very exclusive crop. These dates are the largest, the sweetest and the juiciest. Extremely meaty dates with tiny pits.

Medjool Dates are fresh and ready for you to enjoy in your home. They are great for cooking, baking and snacking.

The dates are fat free, cholesterol free, sodium free. The dates are high in potassium and vitamins, including complex ones – thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B-6 and pantothenic acid. Manganese, copper, magnesium are some of the minerals that are also derived from Medjool dates; these are very rich in both soluble and insoluble fiber. A serving of power-packed dates contains 31 grams of carbohydrates, making them a powerhouse of energy.

    Nice and fresh 😉 soft dates, nicely packaged 🙂 The dates are starting to crystallize, but this is a natural date process and I will use them pretty quickly so not a concern. They are perfect.

    Product shipped promptly and arrived quickly. Very satisfied with quality as well; wasn’t quite sure what to expect of a 5 lb bag of dates, but the quality has been entirely satisfactory.

    These dates are great – I’m vegan, so I primarily use these in various recipes as a bonding agent, and they definitely work and result in tasty recipes. There is a pit in them, so you do have to get that out first, but they easily pull out.

    Question

    Can these dates be frozen without effecting the quality and flavor?

      Hi Rick, Thank you very much for your question. Dates are a dried fruit that appear glossy and wrinkled. They don’t need to be frozen to keep their freshness unless you are planning to use them about a year later. Sometimes dates can become so dry that they are unpleasant to eat. Freezing them can help keep their freshness especially if you plan to make holiday dishes within the next six months. Something like date nut whorls may be better off having the dates frozen. Dates have a long shelf life and overall you don’t need to freeze them.

The Healthiest Cookies EVER

The Healthiest Cookies EVER

Author: Detoxinista.com

Serves: 12

Cookies made with 100% whole food ingredients for a healthy treat anytime.

Ingredients

  • 1½ cups raw walnut halves
  • 1 cup medjool dates, pitted (about 12)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 flax egg (1 tablespoon ground flax or chia seeds + 3 tablespoons water)
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips (optional)


Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat. In the bowl of a food processor fitted with an “S” blade, process the dates and walnuts together until a crumbly texture is formed. Add in the salt, baking soda, vanilla and flax egg and process again until the batter is relatively smooth. Add in the chocolate chips and briefly pulse, just to combine.
  2. Spoon the batter onto a lined baking sheet, and use your hands to gently flatten the cookie dough. (Tip: Wet your hands with water to prevent sticking!) Bake at 350F for 12 minutes, or until the edges are slightly golden. Allow to cool on the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
  3. Serve immediately, and store the leftovers in a sealed container in the fridge or freezer for best shelf life. These cookies should last a week in the fridge, and a month or more in the freezer.


Enjoy!

  • Heaping 1/2 cup (40 grams) raw cacao powder
  • 3 tablespoons (60 grams) honey
  • 2 tablespoons/30 milliliters coconut or olive oil
  • 1/2 cup (50 grams) walnuts, chopped, to decorate – http://bit.ly/1y3rucg

  • 15 dates (about 340 grams), pitted – http://bit.ly/1Gn0is1
  • 1/4 cup (90 grams) honey


Method

For the Bars: Line an 8-by 8-inch/20-by 20-centimeter baking pan with parchment or wax paper allowing some of the paper to hang over the sides.

Place the walnuts, raw cacao powder and salt in a food processor and blend until the mixture forms a sticky ball, about 2 minutes. Scrape the sides of the food processor with a rubber spatula as needed. Add the dried fruits, dates and honey and blend again until combined, 1 to 2 minutes longer.

Press the mixture into the prepared pan with a rubber spatula. Refrigerate at least 20 minutes.

For the Frosting: Soak the dates in cold water for 20 minutes. Drain them and pulse them in a food processor along with the remaining ingredients until completely smooth, 1 to 2 minutes. Scrape the sides of the food processor with a rubber spatula as needed. Chill at least 2 hours.

For the Assembly: Pull the bars out of the baking pan using the excess paper and place them on a cutting board. Spread the top of the bars with icing and sprinkle with the chopped walnuts. Run a sharp knife under hot water and cut into 12 bars.

These bars, which are gluten-free, lactose-free, sugar-free, vegan and raw, can be stored in the fridge for five days.

  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/8 – 1/4 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
  • couple pinches ground cardamom

  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar (or freshly squeezed lemon juice)
  • couple pinches cinnamon

Transfer the mixture to the prepared loaf dish. Press the mixture firmly into the pan (using a small piece of parchment is easiest). Prepare the frosting: Combine all the ingredients in a mini food processor, or mix very well by stirring in a bowl). Smooth the frosting over the base. Refrigerate for an hour or more until set. Cut into bars or squares and serve!

Chocolate Truffle Energy Bites

Chocolate Truffle Energy Bites

Ingredients:

  • 14 Medjool dates, pitted and soaked in warm water for 10 minutes – http://bit.ly/1Gn0is1
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup dry-roasted salted peanuts (or any type of peanut, salted or unsalted – your preference)
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds – http://bit.ly/1Hf6ehY
    optional for rolling: cocoa powder, shredded coconut, crushed nuts, mini chocolate chips


Directions:

First, make sure your dates are soft. You may soak them in warm water (and drain them) for 15 minutes before putting into the food processor or blender. OR you may chop them up into very small pieces so they blend easily.

Put all of your ingredients into the blender or food processor, in the order listed, and blend for 4-5 minutes or until a thick oily “dough” ball is formed. The dough will be oily from the seeds and nuts. You will have to scrape down the sides of the blender/food processor a few times to get all of the dry ingredients to the bottom. Once a dough is formed, scoop the dough (about 1 Tablespoon each) and roll into a smooth ball with your hands.

If rolling into cocoa powder, coconut, etc: spread rolling ingredients onto a plate and roll the moist dough ball around to fully cover. Store bites in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.

Enjoy it!
