SO, I ordered this date sugar and I've made the brownies again. Holy smokes, it was so much easier! Instead of buying this date sugar, you COULD buy a bunch of dates, dry them out in a dehydrator, and put them in a food processor. I won't do that again though, because that takes a bunch of time, and it cost me more to use dates from the store than it cost to buy this already turned into date sugar.
The texture of this date sugar is uniform enough that it works well in recipes, but the color and size of the granules varies enough that you know it comes from real food instead of being some sort of chemical product. The date sugar is quite sweet, and very easy to work with.
I will definitely continue to buy this date sugar.
This sugar does not dissolve by itself, but when you make a paste out of it, it does dissolve. The sugar is very "crystal-ly" and not finely ground. I first grind it up in a high performance blender (VitaMix, BlendTec etc) to make into a powder. I pour it back in the bag for easier handling...[[Can be smoky like dry ice]]...I add 1 cup of water to the blender then pour in some date sugar and blend until smooth. Continue adding water (eyeball amount) and add the rest of the sugar package. Once blended correctly, it resembles chocolate frosting. If it does not, blend it longer. Or if you added a lot of water it can look like a syrup. [[Some people add vanilla and lemon juice too. And most people just add the sugar without grinding it up first]].
I love the date paste in baked goods and in oatmeal. It bakes perfectly without compromising texture and it stirs into hot oatmeal without a trace. For some baked goods, you need a little experimentation. You can either omit some liquid or add more dry ingredients. If you don't want adjustments, you can change the temperature and cooking time. Practice in small batches because not all recipes require adjustments...I don't really like the flavor in smoothies, yogurt or tea (sugar or paste form). And the sugar (as-is or powdered) does not work for cereal. It does sweeten, but the as-is sugar never dissolves and sinks to the bottom while the powdered sugar becomes clumpy and never dissolves. But the date paste is perfect for anything that would normally have brown sugar or caramel flavoring in it. It does not substitute for granulated sugar. It is sweet, but it has a different flavor than sugar.Read more ›

Does not clump, flavor is good - but it is so powdery, it sends off clouds of date sugar dust when I take out spoonfuls or pour it. Read morePublished 13 months ago by JAH
Great mild sweetener, preferred over coconut sugar.
Only draw back was the packaging. All 4 packs taped together!
You get the most for your money. The contents were very fine. I've ordered this several. One thing that I think is too high is the shippingPublished on June 17, 2014 by charlene vlcek

I had been buying Bob's Red Mill date sugar for a couple years, until Amazon stopped carrying it. It always ended up being clumped and I needed to break it up. Read morePublished on March 4, 2014 by Lisa L
