Date ginger slices or rather one of my favorite snacks. why? Because I love the combination of the sweetness of the dates and raisins and the spiciness of the ginger. Right now I’m on my way to beautiful Mexico and I’m looking forward to sun, beach and sea. In Bavaria it was dull and cloudy for months in the winter, so I will fill up my vitamin D storage really well again. I also look forward to good food and new inspirations to take home. I would say, Viva la Mexico!
Date ginger slices
Quick and easy is again the motto for these fine cuts. The only thing that really matters is a good blender. I use my MagiMix (already for many years) and it just runs like clockwork. First I roast the nuts in the oven, this gives them a finer flavor. Then they also go straight into the blender and are ground small. Add dates and grated ginger. Mix everything together until a malleable dough is formed and we are almost done.
Continue with the form. I use a 20x20cm mold (brownie mold) and first line it with baking paper. Then I put the dough in and gently press it flat. I always make sure that my fingers are slightly moistened, so everything is easier to do and nothing sticks.
TIP: I swear by using my Magimix for processing raw food slices, blissballs and other raw doughs. It simply makes the best doughs and I have had it for several years.

- Provide a blender (preferably with an S-shaped blade, like MagiMix). Add in nuts and grind until a coarse flour is formed. Add in dates, ginger and half of the raisins and blend until a compact paste is formed. At the very end, add the other half of the raisins and mix again briefly until they are integrated into the dough. TIP: I like to have a few coarser pieces of raisins in the dough, but you can also mix everything very finely.290 g Medjool dates, 3 tbspn grated ginger, 150 g Raisins
