Today is National Medjool Date Day! To celebrate this naturally sweet holiday, I’ve gathered all of my super sweet recipes for you! I knew I used Medjool dates a lot, but WOW, I didn’t realize just how often I used them in my recipes! As you guys know, you will never find any recipes containing refined sugar on my blog, so Medjool dates make the perfect choice for most of my creations!

If you didn’t already know about Nature’s power fruit…
Natural Delights™ Medjool Dates, named an official “heart healthy” food by the American Heart Association, are low-medium on the glycemic index and packed full of fiber and potassium (50% more, by weight, than a banana) – making them perfect for boosting energy, satisfying hunger and helping with muscle recovery. Their caramel-like taste, consistency and natural sweetness gives them an advantage over refined sugars in recipes and pre- and post-workout snacks. Medjool dates are also gluten-free, Vegan, Halal and Kosher, making them perfect for nearly every diet.

Explore all of my sweet & savory Medjool date recipes, plus scroll all the way to the bottom for information about tonight’s #MedjoolDateDay Twitter Party brought to you by @NDmedjooldates for a fun Medjool convo with fellow blogger and host @CoryanneEttiene and a chance to win some awesome prizes (um, I heard there’s really cool fitness gear!) from Natural Delights™ Medjool Dates!

    I absolutely adore medjool dates, truly natures candy! I myself have made a similar sauce to your caramel sauce, but a toffee sauce using dates too. They are so versatile. And thanks for the heads up about the Twitter party, can’t wait to join in xx

    I think I really started to use dates more often my cooking just this year. Where had I been?! I’m in love with them now. I recently used dates in a vegan banana blueberry recipe I came up with for my blog! Thanks for all of the recipes!

    Wow awesome list of mouth watering choices, going to have to put these in my list of things to make. The vegan banana bread sounds like a great one to start with.
