Ramadan Treats

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) used to break his fasts with dates. It has thus become a tradition for Muslims everywhere to do the same. The nutritional value packed into dates makes it the perfect "first" food for consumption after a long day of fasting. They are easy to digest and provide an immediate boost of energy.

The other day, I came across this recipe for Date Nut Bars, which turned out to be really delicious. It uses both walnuts and dates and tastes a lot like oatmeal cookies. I would definitely recommend this recipe to anyone looking for a good snack to keep them productive during non-fasting hours.

Speaking of Ramadan treats, when was the last time you checked out this blog's database of Muslim magazines, newspapers and websites in search of writers? There are now more than 60 publications to browse through, including a new category that lists publications for Muslim children and teens.
