9 steps

  • Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

  • 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.

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

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

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

  • 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.

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

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

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

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 almond butter?

Natural peanut butter. People with nut allergies can use sesame seed butter or Wowbutter.

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!
