7 steps

  • Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

  • In a bowl, mix together the Madame Labriski date puree (original or vanilla), plant-based milk, chia seeds and one serving of vanilla-flavoured VEGA Protein Smoothie powder until well combined.

  • Now add the matcha, unsweetened toasted coconut flakes and puffed quinoa and stir thoroughly!

  • Line your cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat because if you don’t everything will stick. Now we wouldn’t want to let a swear word slip, would we? ;-)

  • Drop the dough onto a baking sheet using a spoon or measuring scoop to create nice plump Labriski cookies. If you want, you can use a smaller scoop to make handy, pocket-sized snacks that are perfect pick-me-ups after a workout or sports activity!

  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Allow to cool on a rack before digging in. *If you prefer them to be a bit crispier, go for the longer, 20-minute cooking time.

  • Gogogoski! Get active and then take a bite of pure happiness with the VegaMegaMatcha.

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.

The recipe calls for a plant-based beverage, can I use regular cow’s milk instead?

Yes, always.

Yes.
