When I began following my PALEO path, I craved dessert recipes using brown sugar. I really felt like I was missing out. Sometimes I would compromise and buy a brown sugar substitute sweetener. But these sweeteners are unnatural and often very expensive. I remember the day I discovered date paste. I was so thrilled to know I could utilize a fruit that is so nutritious and use it to replace brown sugar and maple syrup. I love date paste on grain-free toast!

Inflammation is directly associated with heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, Alzheimer’s, and a list of autoimmune diseases. Dates are also a good source of various vitamins and minerals, and fiber and contain calcium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, and zinc?
WHAT IS THE TASTE PROFILE OF PALEO WHOLE30 DATE PASTE?
Date paste is sweet, sweet, sweet. You won’t need a lot to sweeten your dish or dessert. Sweetness is its predominant taste sensation. When used in baking the date paste tastes much liker brown sugar.
WHAT WINE HARMONIZES WITH DISHES USING PALEO WHOLE30 DATE PASTE?
Date paste is sweet. That’s its best quality! So any dessert or dish you create using date paste will require a wine with sweetness to match. If the dish or dessert is just slightly sweet, you can include an off-dry white wine with dinner. If making a dessert, stick to wines with more sweetness like Tawny Port, late-harvest whites, and even Canadian Icewine!
