Man oh man, it’s been a crazy few days since I last posted! First off, Corey and I went to our friend’s wedding out in Indio this past Saturday and it was majorly adorable, plus a lot of fun. We definitely took advantage of the photo booth that was there, where Corey proceeded to flash the camera. 😉 Plus, I can’t go without mentioning the election. Man, what a crazy day yesterday was! Did you go out and vote? Either way, I think everyone was sweating bullets at one point, last night.
Due to all of the errands, events and some assignments, I haven’t had a lot of time to put together awesome meals and such. BUT, one thing that I did accomplish was making this fantastic recipe for apple pie chia pudding. It’s like taking the essence of an apple pie and stirring chia seeds into it, and a pinch of salt gives the illusion of a buttery crust flavor. I’m not going to lie, it is pretty awesome.
The only thing is, if you were to ask me if I liked the Pumpkin Pie chia pudding or this one better, well, I wouldn’t be able to answer that. Okay, I’m lying, the Pumpkin Pie one of course! But, that’s only because I like pumpkin pie more; this apple pie chia pudding certainly gives it a run for its money, though!
One Year Ago: Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal
- 2/3 C . Fresh Apple Juice I juiced 3 Small Gala Apples for this amount
- 1/2 tsp . Maple Syrup
- 1/2 tsp . Vanilla Extract
- 1/3 tsp . Ground Cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp . Salt
- 3 Tbsp . Chia Seeds
- Tbsp Optional: 2 . Chopped Pecans
Stir together all ingredients other than the chia seeds (and pecans if you use them) in a small bowl until evenly mixed.
Add the chia seeds to the liquid and stir together so that they are not floating on top.
Set in your fridge for an hour or more, or overnight if you want this for breakfast. Stir once 30 mins. in.
Once the seeds have soaked up the liquid, it will be gel-like. Top with pecans and enjoy!

You can even put it in a fancy dish and serve it as dessert, that’s what your heart desires. Although, I feel like this is a great opportunity to have pie for breakfast without feeling guilty. 😉
