History

Fresh ideas are always welcome. This suggestion for breakfast squares is just like a bowl of oatmeal… but made in the shape of squares. Handy for those hectic mornings. VEGAN, GLUTEN FREE, and DAIRY FREE, this recipe is perfect for cranberry lovers.

The Cranberry Bliss is an autumn recipe made to warm the soul. When it’s prepared using cranberries sweetened with apple juice (yes, they really do exist), you have every reason in the world to say you TRULY are cooking without any added refined sugar. Hahaha! Before posting a recipe on my blog, I always try it out myself at least 3 times. Here I tested it with the caramel flavoured date puree… mamma mia, I can tell you right now that it’s turned the happiness factor up another notch.

FAQ

Where can I buy Madame Labriski date puree?

At IGA, Rachelle Béry, Marché Tradition and Bonichoix grocery stores across Quebec. My purees contain no preservatives and can be found in the fruit and vegetable section (yes, dates are fruit) near the pre-cut fruit and vegetables. If you can’t find them, simply ask a member of staff!

Can I swap chia seeds for flax seeds and vice versa?

Yes, always. You can also use hemp seeds.

What can I use as a substitute for almond powder or hazelnut powder?

You can always substitute one type of nut powder for another type of nut powder or even powdered seeds (sesame seed or sunflower seed powder). You can also replace almond powder with organic tiger nut powder. (Tiger nuts are a tuber.)

What can I use as a substitute for oatmeal?

Any kind of cereal flakes: quinoa, buckwheat, spelt, etc. If you are gluten intolerant, you can buy oatmeal that is certified gluten-free.
