6 steps

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).

  • In a bowl, combine all the ingredients and mix until combined.

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat—otherwise, everything will stick.

  • Using a spoon, spread the mixture onto the baking sheet. Don’t be afraid to firmly press it down onto the baking sheet so the bars hold together.

  • Bake for about 20 minutes. OMG! It smells so good!

  • Let the bars cool before slicing. Enjoy this fruity delight!

History

A recipe for the perfect treat to pack in your lunchbox. These bars are not only SUGAR-FREE and FAT-FREE, they’re also GLUTEN-FREE, DAIRY-FREE, NUT- and PEANUT-FREE and CHOCOLATE-FREE, plus they take no time at all to make. Providing the ultimate energy boost, I love eating them just before a workout. And if you want an even healthier version, try them with dried fruit sweetened with fruit juice. Enjoy.

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 oatmeal?

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

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
