Product Description

Medjool dates were considered “the fruit of kings” thousands of years ago. Neither their taste nor their exceptional nutritional value has changed since those times. Therefore, even today these type of dates are a great addition to your diet. Organic Medjool dates are deliciously sweet and can have a subtle caramel flavor that makes them a great addition to desserts. They also make a great snack on their own as they are nutritious enough to keep you going through several hours of intense work.

Medjool dates were at the edge of extinction at the beginning of the 20th century due to a disease that affected the trees in Morocco, their country of origin. However, some offshoots were sent to the US in 1927, which prevented this terrible loss and allows us to enjoy these delicious dates grown on American soil.

Health Benefits

The health benefits of organic Medjool dates are numerous and varied. The most important of them are:

  • Improving your digestion.
    As Medjool dates are exceptionally rich in both soluble and insoluble fiber, they are a great food for your digestive system. If you suffer from any kind of digestive disorder that includes irregular bowel movements, diarrhea or constipation, adding dates to your diet will be a wise decision as they will help relieve these symptoms.
  • Controlling your blood pressure.
    This fruit is rich in magnesium and potassium. Both these nutrients play a crucial part in maintaining your blood pressure at a healthy level. Therefore, you need to consume them regularly in order to reduce the risk of stroke, coronary disease, and other conditions caused or aggravated by hypertension. Note that these nutrients can also benefit the health of your nervous system and muscles.
  • Removing “bad” cholesterol from your system.
    Antioxidants, polyphenols, and tannins from Medjool dates can not only stop the buildup of “bad” LDL cholesterol in your system, but also remove it from your body. Therefore, eating them on a regular basis will reduce the risk of arteriosclerosis and some digestive-related cancers.

  2. 3 out of 5 Not too satisfied :/

    When I ordered a 2lb pack from Amazon, the fruit was juicy and fresh. This time around I ordered a 5lb pack, but am dissapointed with the product. The fruit a quite dry and as I am going through I found a couple dates are dark inside, like there was mold growth.

  4. 3 out of 5 Dates are quite hard & dry

    I love this company & service. I was a bit disappointed with the dates as they are very hard & dry, unlike any medjool I have had before. Okay, after soaked. I wouldn’t get them again.

    Tastes great and even though they were slightly tough eventually they seemed to soften. I don’t know why, I will order them again because I love the taste and the size. They are a great size at a fine price.

    5 out of 5 Ordering for the fourth time

    The first time I tried these dates, I bought them from Amazon. I ended up finding the website and get them even cheaper this way. Have never had a problem with any dates; they are plump and juicy – my adult kids are now buying them too, and I’m ordering the 15 lb bag this time as everyone is loving them. Sorry for those who’ve had a problem with them. May have been a fluke? So far so good for me.

    I love dates and was excited to find this large bag for a decent price! They arrived quickly. So far, I’ve only found one with black mold inside (though I’ve only eaten about a third of the dates so far). The rest were delicious, mostly plump and moist. I plan on purchasing them again.

    Dates arrived much faster than anticipated, despite lack of two day shipping. More importantly, I have tried dates from many sellers, but these dates were by far the best tasting dates I have received. Simply Delicious!!!!!

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

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.

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

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!
