Add the dates into a bowl and fill with boiling hot water. Let the dates soak for 30 minutes and then drain. Set the dates aside. Add the soaked dates and all the other ingredients into a food processor or blender, and blend until the spread becomes smooth and creamy. Pour the spread into a mason jar and store in the fridge to set for about 1 hour. Keep the sauce in the fridge for up to one week.
We enjoy adding our spread on anything from sweet toast, waffles, pancakes, dipped into other fruit, spread onto banana bread and croissants, and even added into chia pudding or smoothies. Enjoy!
