Okay, so this isn’t exactly a recipe, but it’s a super nutritious and filling breakfast that I’ve been enjoying lately. Not only does it squash my sweet tooth (I hear that’s going around, ya know?) but it leaves me with a lot of energy to keep up with my 4 month old.

Recipe Directions

1. Pour the tahini in the bowl first and then add the date syrup (in Kurdish Doe-shaaw).

2. Mix until you have a thick even-colored paste.

3. Then use your fruit, bread, or whatever to eat.

Not only does it squash my sweet tooth (I hear that’s going around, ya know?) but it leaves me with a lot of energy to keep up with my 4 month old.

I’m so hoping that in the summer when it’s hot to try and see if I can dehydrate this a bit (No dehydrator but the sun works just as good).

I’m hoping to create a kind of taffy. If there’s any brave soul out there with a dehydrator who’d like to experiment with this and see if it works, I’d be really grateful for the information!

Ha-Fetta (Enjoy in Kurdish!)!

i think a good sub for date syrup could be honey (or other sweetener) with some carob powder

I make date syrup at home and it is quite easy. Don't quote me on the measurements, but you can just "eye it" and decide if you need to add more or less of something.

For about 1 Jar of date syrup (little over 1 cup):

20-40 dates, pitted (and soaked for a few hours if you have time, I usually just chuck them in the blender without soaking them)

1/2 cup of pure water

pinch of himalayan salt

I start with 20 dates, pit them and add them to the blender with the water and salt. I start blending until its smooth and I reach the consistency that I want. If I want it sweeter, I add more dates. If I want it to be more like a sauce, then more water. I usually end up using 40 dates and a cup of water more or less. This syrup can be used for just about any dessert or food that requires a sweetner and lasts for about a couple of days in the fridge and that's only because we use it up so quickly. I really don't know how long it would stay fresh.

Actually date syrup lasts for a month in the fridge that's the longest I've let it be. I usually pit the dates before I soak them some times when there isn't electricity I just mash them with the soak water to make a paste with a fork. It's almost the same thing but you have more flexibility with a blender to make the consistancy you like. Date syrup is also a great substitute for sugar/stevia in coffee.. It gives it a unique flavor I sometimes use it in my tea too.

Where do you get raw date syrup, or is there a way to make it at home?
