Look Ma, No Sugar! Giving the Cookie a Healthier Spin Using Date Paste

10.02.21 /

Love cookies? 🍪 Here’s a trick you can try when you bake your next batch — use Saffron and More’s date paste instead of sugar. While the finished goodies will be less sweet, the flavours will be more complex with a hint of caramel, chocolate and fruity notes. The gooey texture of date paste makes the cookies softer and chewier. Made from four kinds of Persian dates, it’s a sweetener packed with health benefits so you can unleash the cookie monster inside you without the guilt. If there’s ever going to be a heartier version of this sugary treat, this is it!

While I think of myself as an Aussie, I’m also proud as punch of my Iranian heritage. So much so, in 2013, I created a business built around the mouth-watering delicacies of Persia; bringing you flavours of the real Iran. I wanted to create a space at the table for the golden-petaled spice: Persian Saffron.
