History

Muffins, did someone say muffins? I feel like changing the world (the world of muffins, that is) with simple recipes containing no added fat and sweetened with date puree. After featuring on my Instagram for several months (without being given a proper name), here’s the IDEAL muffin to pop in your lunchboxes: the MyChampion. A high-protein VEGAN, ALLERGEN-FREE muffin, you can’t get much better than that! And it’s a great, oh-so-easy-to-make solution for the back-to-school season.

I adore these muffins. And did you know that, out of all the different types of seeds and nuts, pumpkin seeds are the ones that contain the highest amount of protein? Really? Definitely, and that’s yet another reason to love them. There’s nothing quite like a tasty, nourishing muffin to bring a touch of happiness to your lunchbox.
A perfect muffin… the aptly named MyChampion. Hahaha!

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!

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 oatmeal?

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