Raffinated sugar is ubiquit in our Society. To avoid unhealthy raffinated sugar you can use dates for preparing your sweets.
I love naturally sweets without any other additives. Preparing your own healthy Sweets is so unbelivanle easy.
And to use dates instead of any other kind of sugar is so healthy because dates are a good source of various vitamins and minerals. Its a good source of energy, sugar and fiber. Essential minerals such as calcium, iron, phosphorus, sodium, potassium, magnesium and zinc are found in dates. It also contains vitamins such as thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, folate, vitamin A and vitamin K.
So beginn to eat more dates YEAH!
I use raw cacao powder in These Little beauties to get a choc taste. In combination with the sweet dates it is nearly the same taste like chocolate. I love adding cacao in my Sweets because cacao beans contains natural chemicals called flavonoids, a type of antioxidant compound that promotes general health and might lower your risk of several diseases.
