Ingredients

8 steps

  • Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

  • Put the date puree, egg and peanut butter into a bowl and mix thoroughly.

  • Stir in the cereal and blend well.

  • Now add all the remaining ingredients and continue putting those cookie-making muscles to the test. Hahaha!

  • Once it’s all nicely mixed together, use a silicone baking mat to line your cookie sheet which, for the purpose at hand, will act as a Labriski bar sheet for today. Hahahaha! Don’t have a silicone baking mat? No worries, you can use parchment paper or simply grease the sheet lightly. (Watch out, because if you don’t, everything is going to stick. NOOOOO! That’s the last thing we need!)

  • Spread the dough over the silicone mat using your wooden spoon. Don’t be afraid to press the mixture down firmly because if it’s not squashed down enough, the bars will end up being ultra-tender, so to speak. To be perfectly honest, they may not hold together properly ;-)

  • Bake at 350°F for 15 minutes. OMG! OMG! OMG! An aroma of pure joy on the horizon!

  • You’ll need to wait a little bit before cutting into bars, or any other shape that takes your fancy.

History

Labriski cereal bars? No way? OH! YES WAY! Plus, they’re fat free and sugar free just like all the other Labriskian goodies on this site. Who doesn’t like a little crunch? And if we’re going to make cereal bars, we may as well raise the bar high. Loads of people write to me telling me they bring along these bars when they go hiking.
This new creation, whose star ingredient is peanut butter (or the nut butter of your choice), is called the Energizing Crispy Crunch and is one you can adapt using your favourite ingredients or the ones you happen to have in the cupboard. How cool is that?!

FAQ

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 one egg?

There are several options:

  • 1 tbsp. ground chia seeds + 3 tbsp. water,
  • 2 tbsp. ground flaxseed + 2 tbsp. water,
  • ½ mashed banana,
  • Egg substitute (yes, it’s available at grocery stores, in the organic section).

Note that the texture of your recipes will be slightly different… but they’ll still be 100% delicious

What can I use as a substitute for one type of nut?

Simply any other type of nut you have in the cupboard (almonds, cashews, pecans, etc.). For example, if you don’t have any walnuts, you can use pecans. The important thing is not to tear your hair out!

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!
