  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.

  • In a bowl, combine the date puree, applesauce, milk of your choice and eggs.

  • Add the pure vanilla extract, baking soda, baking powder, ground cinnamon and salt. Wait for a light frothing to occur (just for fun), then mix well.

  • Mix in the flour, chia seeds, dried pitted dates and chopped pecans until combined.

  • Line a muffin pan with parchment paper or a silicone liners. If you don’t have liner, lightly grease the pan- otherwise everything will stick.

  • Divide the mixture evenly among the muffin cups.

  • Decorate each muffin with a pecan half.

  • Bake for about 42 minutes. Let cool. These muffins are best enjoyed once they are cooled to room temperature. Smells good!

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!

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

Yes, always.

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 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
