7 steps

  • Preheat the oven.

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

  • Add the caramel extract, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Wait for a light frothing to occur (just for fun), then mix well.

  • Mix in the flours, chia seeds, blueberries, toffee bits and butterscotch chips.

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

  • Drop spoonfuls of dough to create beautifully round energy cookies. Decorate as desired.

  • Bake for about 15 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack. Enjoy!

History

Are you a little skeptical about the taste of gluten-free cookies? I get you. But wait until you’ve tried my Blue Mood energy cookies. This totally scrumptious recipe is healthy, gluten-free and dairy-free. Do they have that sort of sandy texture like most gluten-free products? Not at all… and that’s why I love them so much. Both moist and deliciously tasty, get ready to be blown away by the surprising combination of blueberries and toffee bits… Yum, yumski!

Source of energy and that signature Labriski happiness, these original energy cookies are anything but ordinary. To be honest, Blue Mood cookies give you that feeling of total bliss that makes you want to share them with everyone.

Bake a batch of Blue Mood cookies and you’ll spread happiness all around you.

FAQ

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

Yes, always. You can also use hemp seeds.

There are several options:

  • 2 tbsp. ground flaxseed + 2 tbsp. water,
