The holiday season is here! Who’s ready for Thanksgiving this week? We hope your getting your turkeys, stuffing, and pumpkin pies ready for a family feast. We know we are so excited to spend time with family around good food!
One of our holiday staples is pecan pie. Especially down here in Louisiana, where you can get the freshest pecans you’ll ever eat. Nothing beats cutting into a slice of sweet, sticky pecan pie… except maybe pecan pie energy bites that are actually healthy!
These energy bites are made with just a few simple ingredients you may already have on hand – which means you should make them ASAP. ;) They taste just like classic pecan pie, but are Paleo, gluten-free, grain-free, and vegan/vegetarian. They’re a great sweet snack to enjoy in a lunch box or when the 3 p.m. slump comes along. The whole family will love these pecan pie energy bites! Let us know if you try them – you won’t regret it.
This Pumpkin Chia Pudding is a healthy way to indulge a pumpkin pie craving. The kids will love this dessert-for-breakfast recipe! Gluten-free/vegetarian.
Have you ever tried chia pudding? It’s a great grain-free alternative to oatmeal, and a healthy way to indulge in pudding for dessert. With some mashed pumpkin and a few spices, this Healthy Pumpkin Chia Pudding tastes just like a slice of pie!
When chia seeds are left to sit in liquid, they form a gel consistency that is just like pudding. They’re full of fiber and omega-3 fatty acids, so you can feel good giving your kids some ch-ch-ch-chia!
This pumpkin chia pudding is great for breakfast, a healthy sweet snack, or even an after-dinner dessert. For an even smoother consistency, you can blend all the ingredients after soaking to create a silky pudding. I love topping mine with crunchy pecans for texture and a drizzle of molasses for true pumpkin pie flavor. Grab a spoon and dig in!
