Whether you’re a professional chef or someone who loves getting creative in the kitchen, dates bring a unique flavor and texture to many popular dishes. But before we get to that, we’ve got a pleasant surprise about this less-known fruit.

Deliciously sweet, dates are commonly referred to as “nature’s candy.” But when it comes to health benefits, dates and candy cannot be compared. That’s right – if you’re looking to up your nutrition, look no further than dates! Rich in fiber, dates are known to improve digestive health. They also contain essential minerals such as potassium, calcium and iron, which are essential for overall wellness. Finally, their naturally sweet flavor makes them a nutritious treat.

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to add more dates to my routine!  From salty and savory to sweet desserts, we’ve rounded up some of the best recipes using dates. Enjoy!
