6 steps

  • Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

  • Put the date puree, applesauce (or plain yogurt), egg and vanilla extract into a bowl and stir well. Add the salt, baking soda and baking powder, and let it work its magic for a few seconds. (You’ll see a little bubbling effect. My guilty pleasure is to “fold” the dough. You’ll see, it’s going to rise like an Olympic gold medalist!)

  • Now add the organic oat flour (it was love at first sight, or rather taste, for us!), oats, chia seeds and matcha powder and give it another good stir.

  • Use parchment paper to line your Labriski sheet (in the Labriski household, nobody calls them cookie sheets anymore – hahaha!) or you can line it with a silicone baking mat. You may not realize it, but there’s absolutely NO fat at all in the dough so if you don’t, EVERYTHING WILL STICK.

  • Spoon the dough onto the sheet. I personally use teaspoons and create nice big plump cookies. Yummy! (oh, and yes, I also like to taste the raw cookie dough while I’m baking… it’s divine!) If you feel like it, you can garnish by dusting with a little matcha powder… très chic ;-)

  • Pop them all into the oven for 15 minutes at 350°F (180°C). Your kitchen will be filled with the aroma of lush green happiness. Be careful! You might just fall in love… hahahaski!

FAQ

Can I swap chia seeds for flax seeds and vice versa?

Yes, always. You can also use hemp seeds.

Can I use another type of flour than the one specified in the recipe?

Yes, you can simply use any type of flour you have on hand.

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

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!
