    With the 1/2 cup dates, do you use 1 1/2 or 3 Tbsp water?

      It is 1 1/2 tablespoons of water. I updated the post, thanks.

    Serving Size 100g
    Total CARBs….. 75g
    SUGARs 63.4g

    Using dates can be very dangerous for Diabetics. They are 75% CARBs which all convert to SUGAR………We have a “word code” SUGAR FREE means 0 CARBs…. NO SUGAR ADDED means no raw or refined sugar added but it is sweetened with other ingredients that can SPIKE our sugar highs and trigger and diabetic reaction. I’m sure you didn’t know this… non diabetics don’t. But being that PALEO cooking is so wonderful for diabetics giving us many foods (without flour, potatoes, rice and all the other things that SPIKE) we have been forbidden to eat…. it might be kind of you to say “No Sugar Added” instead of the misleading term SUGAR FREE. Dates are #4 on the Diabetics never Eat List,
    Thank you for listening.
