Well, maybe not what you’re looking for, but what you need. I am trying to be good this Thanksgiving, so I looked for something that I could think of as a ‘treat’ without all the ‘bad’. With my current chia seed obsession, it was obvious what I needed to do.
I started where I always do, with a search on Google. I found lots of recipes, but none that seemed quite right. So, I used a couple as inspiration, and tested my idea. A little adjustment and I had something that I could bring to my Dad’s for Thanksgiving dinner.
I am sure I’ll be the only one who turns down pumpkin pie, pecan pie, lime meringue pie and berry pie. My dad will look at me like I’m nuts, my sister will laugh at me, and I will sit smiling knowing that I have something for me.
So, if you are adventurous and really trying to be healthy today, go for it! It’s so easy to make. Come on… Try something new. Enjoy!
