7 steps

  • Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

  • Put the date puree, plain yogurt, egg and vanilla extract into a bowl and mix thoroughly. Then add the salt, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon and, just for novelty’s sake, mix again.

  • Next add the flour, oats and flax or chia seeds to your bowl and, SURPRISE, SURPRISE, stir thoroughly again!

  • Finally, throw in the raisins and give it one last proper stir. (Don’t worry, we’re done after this ;-) By the way, this is the magic moment where you’re allowed to improvise and replace the raisins with whatever catches your fancy.

  • Line the Labriski aka cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Strange as it may seem, there’s absolutely NO fat at all in this recipe so if you don’t, EVERYTHING WILL STICK.

  • Spoon the dough onto the sheet. I personally use teaspoons and create nice big plump cookies. If you feel like it, you can garnish by sprinkling a few oats on top. (Don’t bother searching on the photos, I didn’t garnish mine.)

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!
