Homemade Date Syrup & No-Nut Butter Easter Eggs

What a title, right? But I needed to make sure you saw EVERYTHING that this post is going to entail. Because it’s pretty awesome if I do say so myself.

First, the date syrup. I have a thing with sweeteners. If there is maple syrup in my house, I will find a way to eat it. If there’s dates, it’s less likely. Don’t ask me why, it’s just the way I work. So I can keep dates in my house indefinitely and be perfectly fine…which is the beauty of this first recipe.

Date syrup can be used in place of other liquid sweeteners. It’s PERFECT for the second recipe of this post too. Can you believe it… I made these yummy eggs with ONLY dates as a sweetener? Yep. Pretty cool.

So the date syrup. Here’s how you make it:

1 c water
1/2 c dried dates, pitted
1 mason jar

1. Dump everything in the jar and let it soak in the fridge 12 hours.
2. Use an immersion blender on it until it’s totally smooth. Store in the fridge and use as you desire!

Simple, right?

Now onto the eggs. Make sure you have a batch of this ready to go for this next one. No more reese’s eggs for you guys…you can do so much better! These eggs are delicious and have NO NUTS in them. So if your kid has to be peanut free? No problemo. They keep their shape in the fridge so as long as they go in the lunchbox they should be fine! you can also store them in the freezer, and then they will thaw out in time for a treat at lunch!

    • oh there is tons out there! You just gotta look for it! I like it because I find a little goes a long way, so it is more affordable than other gluten free flours.

  6. Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.
    Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I’m not

    fast. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where
    to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? With
