Healthy Sticky date pudding


Sticky date pudding would have to be in my top 2 favourite desserts, I always thought if I made a clean version of it that more than likely it wouldn’t turn out tasting like the original, however I was pleasantly surprised by how good it did turnout and just how wrong I was! It’s a winner in my books and I definitely recommend you give it a go :) It’s super moist, tastes amazing and did I mention guilt free :) !!


Pudding Ingredients
  • 2 c* pitted medjool dates
