The Life is Oh So Sweet(Cranberry and pumpkin seed energy balls)

Ahhhhh! How sweet life can be (and sweet tasting) with this new energizing and wholesome creation … The Life is Oh So Sweet. Hahaha! GLUTEN-FREE, DAIRY-FREE, PEANUT-FREE and EGG-FREE energy, you’re here at last. Incredibly easy to make and oh so delicious, these little protein-packed treats are fireballs of pure happiness. Si, si. They take no time at all to make and are perfect for popping in your lunch boxes. What, it’s already time to start preparing lunch boxes again? Yup… I can feel that back-to-school season in the air. NO BUT. There are no ifs or buts about it when you’ve got a freshly made batch of Life is Oh So Sweet cookies close at hand… Life certainly is sweet. Hahaha!

A treat for the taste buds. This is what these cookies are all about. A simple recipe that can be made in a flash. You’re going to love them to bits. They’re easy, they’re yummy and they make life… oh so much sweeter.

Dig in and enjoy!



  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F).

  2. Put the date puree into a bowl and add all the other ingredients*! A breeze, n’est-ce pas? ;-)
    * If you don’t have any almond butter, naturel peanut butter will work just fine! For nut allergy sufferers, substitute with sunflower seed butter or Wowbutter.

  3. Give everything a good stir! Get ready for the sweet smell of HAPPINESS.

  4. Keep an ear out and listen carefully… Can you hear that familiar “SNAP, CRACKLE AND POP”? Hahaha!

  5. Line the cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat, if not everything will stick.

  6. Portion the dough using a spoon or measuring scoop to create nice plump Labriski cookies. You can also shape the dough into little balls by rolling it in the palm of your hand. Labriskitip: Rub a little coconut oil into your hands to prevent the dough from sticking.

  7. If you feel like it, you can garnish your treats with cranberries and pumpkin seeds. Now that’s what I call CLASSY!

  8. Bake for about 15 minutes. Allow to cool on a rack before digging in.

  9. Life is oh so sweet! Enjoy! Yum-yummski! And they’re even better the next day. ;-)
