Scale

Ingredients

  • ½ cup (150 g) date puree
  • ½ cup (150 g) nonfat plain yogurt
  • 1 egg

 

  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) pure vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon (2 ml) baking soda
  • 1½ teaspoons (7 ml) baking powder Pinch of salt

 

  • 1 cup (100 g) quick-cooking rolled oats 1 cup (150 g) oat flour or another type of flour
  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) ground flaxseeds
  • ½ cup (50 g) unsweetened shredded coconut
  • ½ to 1 cup (100 to 200 g) dark chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. In a bowl, combine the ingredients from the first section.
  3. Add the ingredients from the second section. Wait for a light frothing to occur (just for fun), then mix well.
  4. Gradually mix in the ingredients from the third section until fully combined.
  5. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat — otherwise, everything will stick.
  6. Drop spoonfuls of dough to create beautifully round energy cookies and decorate as desired.
  7. Bake for about 20 minutes. Get ready: your kitchen will soon smell deliciously good!

 

 


Notes

  • We like using Silicone Baking Sheets instead of Parchment Paper to reduce waste. 
  • Freeze the extra cookie dough in twos so you can bake on demand!

Mériane Labrie, a busy mother and marathon runner, was on the hunt for 100% healthy energizing snacks that would fuel her up before a workout and also satisfy her sweet tooth. Frustrated by her fruitless search for a truly healthy snack, she decided to take matters into her own hands and have a go at making yummy treats of her own. Finally, after much trial and error, her first energy cookie was born! The secret, she found, is swapping out sugar for a magical homemade date puree, combining it with either nonfat plain yogurt or unsweetened applesauce, and then adding natural flavors. Inspired, she kept going to develop healthy snacks for the whole family and then shared her recipes online at MadameLabriski.com, to the joy of her thousands of readers and fans.

In Fuel Your Day! she shares her favorite recipes for healthy energy-filled, high-fibre treats with no added sugar or fat.
