How to Make Date Syrup

I am such a sucker for a sweet treat. 

Before I went vegan I used to sit in my room with a king size 3 Musketeers bar and that was like heaven to me. 

I have since found healthier options to control my sweet tooth, one of which is the deliciously simple raw date syrup that I use as my sweetener in basically everything from oatmeal to waffles to cakes.

I’ve been guilty of sitting on the kitchen floor eating it out of the jar with a spoon…it’s that good!
