Introduction

Out of all the foods that are known to stimulate labor, dates seem to be the most popular. This is likely because they are easy to hide in smoothies and a quick substitute for sugar in many recipes.

Again, it is near impossible to guarantee a quicker progression into labor than nature already has in mind. Studies have however shown that women who eat dates are more likely to dilate with a higher onset of spontaneous labor than those who were not date consumers.

These date blondies are light, flaky, and decadent. They are prepared with oats and almond flour, so the added fiber allows you to feel sweetly satisfied with a consistent flow of energy without a blood sugar crash while hopefully getting you closer to your little one's arrival. They are gluten-free and can easily be modified to be dairy-free. Share with friends and family, or selfishly enjoy on your own.

No Bake Date Blondies

How to make:

In your trusty food processor, combine dates, oats, almond flour, peanut butter and vanilla until smooth. Line a small to medium cake pan with parchment paper. Spread blondie base evenly on the bottom layer of the pan with the parchment paper.

In a separate bowl, combine the peanut butter and maple syrup to assemble the caramel-like center. Spread evenly on top of the blondie base.

Lastly, melt the dark chocolate chips in a separate bowl in the microwave. Finish the final layer of the brownies by spreading the melted chocolate on top of the caramel-like center.

Place in the freezer for twenty minutes. Cut into cubes and enjoy!
