The end of 2022 is just a few days away, and with that usually comes some “New Year’s resolutions.” If a goal of yours is to eat healthier, then we’ve got just the thing for you.


The secret to actually sticking to a healthier diet is to not deprive yourself of foods you love. Either eat them in moderation, or choose healthier ingredients to make those sweet treats. 


One of our favorite sugar replacements is Heaven and Earth’s 100% Pure Organic Silan Date Syrup. it’s a naturally sweet, delicious, and rich replacement for honeys, sugars and other syrups. It’s rich with potassium, vitamins, and antioxidants.


Take a look at some of the recipes below using Silan and make your New Year extra sweet.


  1. Silan Caramelized Shallot Chicken by Molly Hagler
    The silan in this recipe adds a deeper caramelization to the shallots that makes it so delicious.

  2. Date-Sweetened Candy Apples by Miriam Diamant
    Ditching thickeners, additives, and fake sweeteners, this fall favorite wins at being the healthiest and cleanest Candy Apple recipe. These Candy Apples are made solely out of fruit and are truly a healthy yet delicious sweet treat!

  3. Jam Meltaway Cookies by Rachel Berger
    These cookies have a lovely texture which melts in your mouth, thanks to the powdery consistency of the date sugar, and a bit of cornstarch. I love the idea of using an unrefined sweetener in my desserts, and the date sugar also adds a wonderful flavor element. If you don’t want to add the jam, simply leave it out. Regardless, these would be great with a cup of tea.

  4. Cinnamon Baked Apples by Miriam Diamant

    This recipe for easy Cinnamon Baked Apples is healthy, simple, and easy to make! 

    Enjoy these cinnamon apples on their own or serve them up over cereal, yogurt, oatmeal or however you like!

  5. Perfectly Spiced Tahini Date Cookies by Talia Baron

  6. Rice Stuffed Silan Capons by Charnie Kohn

  7. Silan Muffins with Pecan Crumb Topping by Sina Mizrahi
    I love the earthiness silan adds to these deliciously moist not-too-sweet muffins. Don’t skip the crumb topping, it adds that perfect sweet nuttiness and texture. Enjoy with a steaming cup of tea or coffee and you have the perfect midday pick-me-up.
