  1. I love to just eat them whole, but you can make date paste and use it to sweeten foods, or make date squares.

    Put bag of pitted dates in food processor with a bag of coconut and nuts of your choice. Shape into balls and keep in fridge for snacks.

  3. Take seed out warm slightly w butter in the middle as a sweet snack. You can cookdown for a jelly spread on toast too.

  4. Sometimes I keep them in the refrigerator and snack on them. They have the consistency of soft caramels. đŸ˜‹

  5. Great as a sweetener in smoothies…stuff with goat cheese and wrap prosciutto around it…chop and use in cookies…

  6. I love them stuffed with a pecan, wrapped in bacon, dredged in 50% chili powder/50% brown sugar and airfried.

    Eat them right out of the container, same as if they were c as nay! So good in cookies too!

  8. Take the pits out chop up make apple , pumpkin or banana bread , chop up make a trail mix with them

  9. Put a pecan in each one. Roll in sugar. Delicious dessert. A senior lady I knew years ago served them that way. And a date pudding cake is delish.

  10. I take the pit out and put in a pinch of brown sugar and a pecan, wrap in bacon and place in 350 degree oven until bacon is cooked.

    Chop them up and put in oatmeal cookies. They are a sweet fruit. Dip your knife in hot water before cutting as they are sticky

  12. Cut open put pb in middle, dip in chocolate and refrigerate for a couple hours. It’s soo good!

  13. I haven’t ever worked with them myself but I think they are good for sweetening things in baking and probably smoothies, I used to eat these bars that were sweetened with dates
