History

Feel like making a super quick dessert? How about a good old apple crisp with NO ADDED SUGAR?
This ultra-easy recipe is also equally as delicious if you make the VEGAN, GLUTEN-FREE or DAIRY-FREE versions. In other words, a healthy treat that everybody* will be able to enjoy.

We all felt like something with cooked apples, but we only had 20 minutes max to make it. I cut the apples into chunks, I mixed everything together and then spread the mixture on a baking tray… and 10 minutes later: TA-DAH! We had an apple dessert (which is also perfect for breakfast) and the house smelled absolutely amazing.

My daughter wanted some with ice cream with hers and my son wanted his with a glass of milk.
Adrien: “It’s toooooo yummy mom. How did you do it?”
Antoinette: “Don’t be silly, mommy’s Madame Labriski!”

Hahaha!

Afterwards, my daughter gave me even more feedback and I made the recipe again and again, at least four times in one week. I think it’s passed the test. We ate it for dessert and also in the morning for breakfast with yogurt, Greek yogurt. But that’s just it, this recipe is so wholesome that you can even eat some for breakfast. Now that’s what I call the road to happiness!

Another perfect example to prove that there’s no need to use sugar when you’re cooking. Bye-bye refined sugar, hello date puree.

*I put nuts in the recipe, but you can replace them with sunflower or pumpkin seeds. Yum yumski!  

DELICIOUS TIP! Like the taste of caramel or vanilla? Why not try this recipe using caramel or vanilla date puree (with no added sugar). Simply scrumptious.

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.

What can I use as a substitute for oatmeal?

Any kind of cereal flakes: quinoa, buckwheat, spelt, etc. If you are gluten intolerant, you can buy oatmeal that is certified gluten-free.

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!
