Yummy Pumpkin Cookies (That Actually Melt In Your Mouth)

So my food photos are usually somewhat lacking, especially compared to those who have blogs dedicated solely to posting delicious desserts or meals. I have to admit, I’m so eager to eat the food I make that I usually don’t have the patience to arrange the food nicely on a plate or make sure the amount of almonds or sprinkles or berries look picturesque for a photo. Or, I decide to do some late night cooking or baking or smoothie-making and I’ve lost the great natural sunlight and have to settle for my somewhat depressing, overly yellow-tinged kitchen light. However, I decided to dedicate some nice photos (with the setting sun to illuminate the cookies) to the following recipe because these are some of my all time FAVORITE cookies ever. And the title of the recipe doesn’t lie- these cookies actually melt in your mouth! Seriously, if you haven’t had any pumpkin yet this fall season (shame on you!) than you must make these. Or if you think you have had way to much pumpkin already, you need to re-evaluate and try this recipe because it is so so so good- I promise!

Simple Chia Seed Pudding

If you have never had chia seed pudding before…you need to have it as soon as possible.  It is that good. And one of the best parts of having chia seed pudding is that it is VERY quick and easy to make. This dessert is light, sweet and a nice substitute for ice cream or packaged pudding- I’ve even had it for breakfast before.

WebMD states chia seeds “contain healthy omega-3 fatty acids, carbohydrates, protein, fiber, antioxidants, and calcium.” So this little pudding will be packing quite a bit of a nutritious value when consumed! Once you try this recipe, I would love to hear any variation suggestions you have in the comments below. 🙂
