    «People have been asking me to come up with an energy cookie recipe made with zucchini for what feels like an eternity. Seeing as I love carrots in all the colours of the rainbow, I thought it might be a good idea to throw some in too. So here you have it, a recipe that will take you back to the taste of grandma’s zucchini cake: my Running on Veggies. These cookies are dairy-free and the recipe can also be adjusted to make a gluten-free version. Grab one whenever you feel hungry… and they’re a perfect pre-workout snack as well. Gogogoski!»


    Date puree:

    • 500 g pitted dates
    • 410 ml (1⅔ cups) water

    Energy cookie:

    • 150 g (½ cup) date puree
    • 1 egg
    • 115 g (½ cup) non-dairy beverage (or milk)
    • 2 tsp. baking powder
    • 1 tbsp. vanilla
    • Pinch of salt
    • ¼ tsp. garam masala or ground cinnamon
    • 180 g (1½ cups) all-purpose flour (or gluten-free)
    • 2 g (2 tbsp.) chia seeds
    • 100 g (1 cup) finely grated zucchini
    • 50 g (½ cup) multicoloured carrots
    • 80 g (½ cup) currants
    • Optional: 50 g (½ cup) chopped walnuts


    Date puree:

    1. Put the dates and water in a microwave-safe container and cook for 4 minutes.
    2. Puree using a hand blender (ziiiiiiip! ziiiiiiip!) until the mixture has the consistency of Greek yogurt.

    Energy cookie:

    1. Grate the zucchini and broil on a cookie sheet on the middle rack for 10 minutes.
    2. Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F).
    3. In a bowl, mix together the date puree, egg and non-dairy beverage until well blended.
    4. Stir in the baking powder, salt and spices and mix thoroughly.
    5. Now add all the remaining ingredients and stir again.
    6. Line your cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat to prevent everything from sticking.
    7. Drop the dough onto the sheet using a spoon or measuring scoop to create nice plump Labriskis.
    8. If you feel like it, you can garnish each cookie with some of the vegetables and a few raisins.
    9. Bake for approximately 30 minutes.
    10. Luxuriate in that mouth-watering aroma… and get outdoors and get active. Enjoy.
