Chia seeds are the coolest little secret weapon. Not only is this super-food an amazing source of fiber, omega fatty acids, calcium and antioxidants but they also absorb about 10 times their weight in liquid.
In a medium sized bowl or jar, combine almond milk, maple syrup and vanilla extract. Stir or cover and shake the jar to combine. Add chia seeds and cocoa powder and stir with a whisk until the clumps of cocoa get broken up. Cover and place in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours (or overnight is best) stirring occasionally.
This dish is so easy to make and, in comparison to its traditional cousin, can be made as low fat as you desire (using fat free Cool Whip and sugar free pudding mix). The molasses cookies add a spiciness not often found in a traditional pie crust. If you don’t like the flavor of molasses, you could always substitute ginger snaps, but the soft molasses cookies are a delicious addition.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
Heather is a Texas native and the blogger behind Heather's Dish. She's mom to Weston, wife to Nate, and they live in Little Rock, Arkansas with their two "stubborn and saucy" dogs Bunker and Keira. In her blog, she shares her photographs, random musings (serious and silly alike), and all kinds of scrumptious recipes---and not just evil variations of her favorite mac and cheese. Her enviable TK recipe box is a testament to that. Go see for yourself!
