No, not the dinner and a movie kind - the little brown nugget of deliciousness kind. Dates are without question the sweetest fruits on the planet. And since sweet is the name of the game for us, it just made sense to include them among our wholesome ingredients, and the nutritional benefits aren't too shabby either! Dates happen to be a great source of carbs, specifically because of their high fiber content, not to mention all the potassium, magnesium, and antioxidants.
We have tried different wholesome sweeteners with Beanja, but after trying it with dates, nothing else compared. It seems as if they were made for each other. Like, dates and hummus were suppose to be together. (Hope you're seeing the segway here). Both dates and hummus share a very similar history. Dates have been a major crop in the Middle East and North Africa since around 5,000 years ago. Meanwhile, chickpeas in the form of hummus is traditionally rooted in the very same region of the world. In fact, hummus is the arabic word for chickpea!
What a perfect match ;)
