7 steps

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

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

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

  • Mix in the almond flour, the cocoa powder, the ground flaxseeds, the shredded coconut and the 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, and decorate as desired.

  • Bake for the time indicated. Transfer the baked cookies to a cooling rack, and bask in their mouthwatering aroma. Do I need to remind you these cookies are exquisite?

FAQ

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!

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

Yes, always. You can also use hemp seeds.

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.)
