  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).

  • In a bowl, combine the following ingredients: date puree, yogourt and the egg.

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

  • Mix in the quick-cooking rolled oats, undiluted powdered skim milk, almond flour, unsweetened shredded coconut and chocolate chips until combined.

  • 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.

  • Bake for about 12 minutes. Yum, it smells so good!

FAQ

Can I replace yogurt with applesauce?

Yes, always.

Is almond powder the same thing as ground almonds?

Yes. Almond powder, ground almonds, almond flour… they’re pretty much the same thing. Almond flour is available at supermarkets but the almonds are ground more finely. That being said, when a recipe calls for almond flour, you can easily use ground almonds instead.

What can I use as a substitute for almond powder or hazelnut powder?

You can always substitute one type of nut powder for another type of nut powder or even powdered seeds (sesame seed or sunflower seed powder). You can also replace almond powder with organic tiger nut powder. (Tiger nuts are a tuber.)

What can I use as a substitute for milk powder?

It depends on the recipe. When I use milk powder, it’s often a central ingredient in the recipe. Leaving it out is a bit like taking away its very essence. I use it to add protein and give it a nice smooth creamy texture. Without the milk powder, you need to adjust the entire recipe. You can use soy milk powder and you’ll get good results but the texture won’t be the same. It may therefore be best to just try another recipe.
