9 steps

  • Wash your hands properly.

  • Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F).

  • Line your baking sheet with parchment paper (sorry, it’s a reflex).

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

  • Stir in the baking powder, salt, vanilla and hemp seeds.

  • Lastly, add all the remaining ingredients, making sure to blend well.

  • Drop the dough onto the baking sheet using a measuring scoop or tablespoon. Lightly press the tops with the back of a spoon or your fingers to give them a traditional cookie appearance. Decorate with a whole cranberry, if desired.

  • Bake at 350°F for 18 minutes.

  • Mamma mia! Your house is going to smell amazing. Bon appétit!

History

Soft tender cookies? No, wholesome crunchy cookies with no added sugar that you can devour totally guilt-free. NO ADDED SUGAR, not an iota. High in fibre, they also contain a fair amount of protein. And are they good? You bet they are! Molto, molto délicioso! Since the beginning of the Madame Labriski adventure, I’ve been making healthy cookies that are soft and tender because that’s the sort of texture I like.

But…

My kids recently asked me why I never make the crunchy kind of cookies. I explained that I never use any fat (like vegetable oil) in my cookies… and it’s the fat that give cookies their crunchiness.

Then…

I thought it might be interesting to explore the world of regular, crunchy cookies… with of course the Madame Labriski health twist.

I’m kicking things off with these healthy cookies that make for a perfect snack. Yes, they contain very little fat and are high in fibre. Check out the lovely list of wholesome ingredients.

What’s more, I’m taking this opportunity to tell you all about lupin flour.

DON’T HAVE ANY LUPIN FLOUR? That’s a minor detail, just follow the recipe using oat flakes or another type of flour instead (yes, the same amount, that is to say ¼ cup or 25 g).

Let me know what you think (whether you use lupin flour or not), and bon appétit!

Storage

  • For them to stay crunchy, they need to be kept where air circulates instead of an airtight container.

FAQ

I don’t have any lupin flour. Can I still make the recipe?

Yes. Depending on which recipe you’re doing, you can replace the lupin flour (high in fibre and protein: 6 g of protein per 2 tablespoons) that the recipe calls for with the same amount of another type of flour.

Is lupin flour gluten free?

Yes.

In fact, lupin isn’t a cereal, it’s a legume, and that’s the reason it doesn’t contain gluten.

Is lupin flour high in plant protein?

Yes, and that’s why I like to add a little to just about everything. It contains 6 g of protein per 2 tablespoons.

See the article Lupin flour, packed with plant protein.

Where can I find lupin flour?

You can find lupin flour in the organic section at your local grocery store or at so-called health food stores.
