History

AN INSTANT FAVOURITE WITH MY WHOLE FAMILY!

People have been asking me for it for ages so here it is, the recipe (from my orange cookbook Ces muffins dont tout le monde parle) that allows you to turn my famous Teddy Bear Mitt energy cookies into muffins!

Everyone loves molasses cookies. They’re the perfect comfort food and there are endless variations available on the market. Unfortunately, the store-bought versions are real little bombs loaded with added sugar and unhealthy fats… loads and loads (not to mention the additives and preservatives). As part of my ongoing fight against refined sugar and processed food, let me introduce this “muffin” version that’s bursting with wholesomeness.

I know! Molasses is a type of refined sugar, but you just can’t make molasses cookies or muffins without molasses. (I’m all for striking a balance in life.) What I’m most proud of is the fact that, unlike all the other recipes available out there, I’ve not added any other kind of sugar or even maple syrup. I’ve chosen to go for date puree. Once again, this miracle ingredient makes all the difference because it increases the fibre content. TADAH! Fibre changes everything.

Whether you decide to make mini-muffins or regular ones, this recipe will fill the world with happiness and joy.

P.S.: I love to eat Bear Cub Paws before a workout. Bon appétit!

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.

The recipe calls for a plant-based beverage, can I use regular cow’s milk instead?

Yes, always.
