Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding

Chia pudding never gets old. Snack or a breakfast, it’s nutritious, easy and affordable. I don’t make enough of chia pudding with no good answer for that. I think I go through stages of having it all week and then feeling like I need a break. This pumpkin pie chia pudding is made only with 5 ingredients you more likely already have on hand. I also took into consideration many readers’ request for my vanilla chia pudding and chocolate chia pudding recipes to be thicker. You will also find if using heaping tablespoons of…

Superfood Chocolate Bars

Did you know you can make dark chocolate at home?! All you have to do is combine equal parts of cacao powder, coconut oil and maple syrup on a stovetop and then freeze => coconut oil fudge. That chocolate already is a step above store bought organic dark chocolate, which is a step above Hershey’s and Cadbury. But these superfood chocolate bars sweetened only with dates, full of superfoods like coconut oil, chia seeds, cacao powder and coconut flakes are so 2020.

Coconut Chia and Quinoa Granola

I have never been a fan of granola until I made this Coconut Chia and Quinoa Granola. All things roasted, toasted, sweet, crunchy and superfood that’s good for you. Oh-ehm-dzhee. I officially like granola now! My granola. Not the store bought one though. I don’t know, it just doesn’t taste fresh to me and is sooooo sweet, I can’t take it. Even the organic one. First of all, roasted quinoa is to die for. Just like that, roast from dry and uncooked. And I hope I don’t have…

Lemon Blueberry Chia Pudding

Who buys a bag of lemons? My husband. I buy bananas by tens of lbs. Together we look like two zookeepers. In reality, we are a normal North American family who buys food in bulk, loads it in a trunk, hauls it home and stuffs the fridge and pantry like there is no tomorrow. I had to ask for a permission to borrow a few lemons from Alex for this blueberry chia pudding. Crazy but we have our own “Do not touch my food” items. Do you? It’s way…

Whole Wheat Chia Pretzels Recipe

These whole wheat pretzels are so easy, healthy and oh so much fun to make with kids. I know many of you, including myself, are scared of the yeast dough. I’m more of a salad and crock pot girl and I pulled these off. I remember one night my mom came home from work and said she had amazing buns recipe. FYI, my mom is not a baker at ALL. Like not a tiny bit. So, she made the dough and it wouldn’t rise. She made a second…

Pear and Chia Whole Wheat Pancakes Recipe

One weekday morning last week, while still in the summer mode full of beach times, school free and potty training less, I made the boys these crunchy, fluffy and moist whole wheat pancakes. To be clear – I do not make pancakes on weekdays, not even from a mix. And if you do, then you are perfectly perfect, just like these pancakes. For me, pancakes are a weekend thing. Are we still friends? Juicy & fragrant pear, crunchy & nutty chia seeds, only 1 tbsp of agave, egg,…
