Do you love chocolate as much as I do?
To celebrate the release of the Madame Labriski books in France, I thought you might like to make this recipe with me.
It’s official, Madame Labriski’s cookbooks are now available in France. Pardon me? Have we just crossed to the other side of the pond? Yes, and this is the recipe I’m using to get the ball rolling.
The title of the book is Je déclare la guerre au sucre raffiné, which means “I’ve declared war on refined sugar”, and I just love it because that’s exactly what I’ve done.
And Canadians, you have no reason to be jealous… it’s the European version of my second cookbook published here under the title Bye-bye sucre raffiné, bonjour purée de dattes, and the English version Goodbye Refined Sugar! will also be available soon. How amazing is that?
To celebrate all this good news, there’s nothing like a nice tender chocolate cake-style cookie and you can even turn the recipe into a VEGAN or even gluten-free version if you feel like it. These super easy to make cookies which have now crossed the borders are my personal ode to my crazy desire (hahaha!) to make the switch to ingredients that are considered happy foods.
Let’s hear it for date puree and all its benefits.
