History

Crazy about peanut butter treats? Your heart will melt for these totally decadent muffins.

Would you believe me if I told you this little culinary miracle contains a whopping 10 grams of protein per serving? Unbelievable. These muffins, with their scrumptious peanut butter and chocolate taste, are little bundles of joy for lovers of Reese’s candies. Because they’re high in protein, these muffins are also an excellent post-workout recovery snack.

Why?
Because after training or a sports event, we need to replenish our carbohydrate stores and increase our protein intake. Therefore, this muffin would be just perfect with a glass of milk (or soy milk) and a handful of nuts.

What more could you ask for?

I personally just love peanut butter. I even like it at any hour of the day. These muffins sweetened with date puree are therefore a great option. So far, everyone’s been telling me they’re absolutely amazing. And what if I told you they were one of those muffins that are the talk of the town? Hahaha!

Will you be able to resist the temptation to bake a batch today?

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 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.

What can I use as a substitute for one egg?

There are several options:

  • 1 tbsp. ground chia seeds + 3 tbsp. water,
  • 2 tbsp. ground flaxseed + 2 tbsp. water,
  • ½ mashed banana,
  • Egg substitute (yes, it’s available at grocery stores, in the organic section).

Note that the texture of your recipes will be slightly different… but they’ll still be 100% delicious
