Alternative to dates as sweetener???

Recommended Posts

Terrible news - last night after eating a delicious meal of teriyaki meatballs and broccoli on day 8, my husband broke into hives. It seems likely that the medjool dates used as a sweetener in the recipe are the culprit. I’m heartbroken as I was already dreaming of a world after whole 30 where we stayed off sugar indefinitely. Has anyone found alternatives that wound change a recipes taste too much?

Raisins, I did not think of that. Will have to try, thank you!


@slc_melissa I probably will but I liked the idea of dates better than using a sweetener like honey, although they both have nutritional benefits (if I’m using raw, local honey of course).
