10 steps

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

  • In a bowl, combine the date puree, the applesauce, the caramel extract, the chia seeds, the pecan flour, the cocoa powder and the flour and mix until a nice ball of dough forms. (Yum, yum! So delicious to snack on!)

  • Sprinkle a bit of cocoa powder over your work surface and on the insides of your hands—yes, yes, as a replacement for regular flour.

  • Transfer the dough to the prepared work surface and use a rolling pin to roll it to a ⅓ inch (1 cm) thickness.

  • Sprinkle the rolled dough with pecan flour and some chocolate chips. Gently press the garnishes into the dough.

  • Great! You can now use the cookie cutters to cut the dough into fun and creative shapes.

  • Decorate as desired with a half pecan and/or chips.

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

  • Bake for about 15 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack.

  • Enjoy eating this sweet treat with your family!

History

Even though in my house we’ve being fueling our days with Labriskis for over eight years now, my hubby and kids are very critical when it comes to my Labriski treats. Sometimes they simply don’t like my culinary inventions and the Labriski reserves in the fridge never go down.  But my CUT-ME-LOOSE cookies were an instant success. It’s like the house had been inundated with a massive tidal wave of love. Yumski! It was a proud moment for Madame.

For Valentine’s Day (and all those other special occasions throughout the year), make this your ultimate go-to recipe. CUT ME LOOSE, YES CUT ME LOOSE!

FAQ

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

Yes, always. You can also use hemp seeds.

Can I use another type of flour than the one specified in the recipe?

Yes, you can simply use any type of flour you have on hand.

What can I use as a substitute for one type of nut?

Simply any other type of nut you have in the cupboard (almonds, cashews, pecans, etc.). For example, if you don’t have any walnuts, you can use pecans. The important thing is not to tear your hair out!

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!
