Sticky Date Pudding

Posted by Lorna Macchia on

On a cold winters night, sometimes a little comfort food is called for... and this is our take on an oldie, but a goodie! Whilst there are no added, processed sugars in this sticky date pudding, it is quite sweet from the natural sugar in the dates and has a delicious sticky texture. Dates are rich in many minerals and a good source of dietary fibre, and nut butter further improves the nutrient density of this delicious dessert.
