Mango Date Masala Chutney

If the title of the post wasn’t enough to get your mouth watering, what if I also said it only consists of four ingredients? What about if I told you it was sugar free? Does that “sweeten the deal”?  :lol:

Mango Date Masala Chutney

I was recently contacted by the folks at Bard Valley Natural Delights, who generously provided me with a whole box of dates! I’m not sharing my bounty, but I will share a delicious recipe made with this delicious  fruit. If you’ve never had a Medjool date, I urge you to get on that. They are naturally very sweet, with a caramel-y taste, which is why this recipe contains no added sweeteners! They are also high in antioxidants (see ya, cancer), electrolytes (nature’s perfect workout snack), and are packed with fibre (12% of your daily requirement in one serving)!

So what can you put this chutney on? Well, just about anything! I have trailed it on oatmeal, atop pancakes, with curry, and straight up on a spoon; the possibilities are endless! If you’re not into garam masala spice or don’t have it on hand, feel free to sub with regular cinnamon.
