Healthy bakes are made without the refined sugars or flours. Dates are my sugar replacement many a times. They taste the same without any difference and iron rich as well. Kids love to snack crispy or something attractive to them like cakes. Dates are the best source to increase iron in our body. Ragi dates cake is highly nutritious, eggless, butterless and sugarless. The cake is so light, moist and delicious! To make it attractive, I have used hazelnuts and Choco chips for decoration. Try this healthy one and enjoy it! Happy baking!!
