Ingredients

  • 225 g (¾ cup) Madame Labriski date puree

  • 1 egg

  • 100 g (1 cup) quick-cooking oats

  • 40 g (¼ cup) chia seeds

  • 20 g (1 cup) puffed millet

  • 60 g (½ cup) chopped pecans

  • 100 à 200 g (½ to 1 cup) chopped pitted dates

7 steps

  • Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

  • In a bowl, combine the date puree and the egg.

  • Add the quick-cooking oats, the chia seeds and the puffed millet. Wait for a light frothing to occur (just for fun), then mix well.

  • Mix in the pecans and the pitted dates.

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

  • Roll the dough to create beautifully round Labriskiballs.

  • Bake for the time indicated. Relish that wonderful aroma and allow to cool on a cooling rack before digging in. I don’t think I need to tell you that they’ll taste totally a-maz-ing?

History

A recipe for date squares disguised as round little balls of energy, could that possibly be? Yesski. Simple and easy to make, this recipe for delectable date square balls doesn’t call for any added sugar. Really? You bet. The natural sugar found in dates does all the work.
What’s more, this is the recipe I chose to launch my first bestseller Fuel Your Day.

Every time I make this recipe, my hubby always asks me what took me so long to make some more. I bet the same thing will happen to you. Enjoy, again and again.

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 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!
