Plant-Based Caramel Apple Chia Seed Pudding

It’s just now feeling like Fall where I live.  That means I can actually enjoy fall foods like apple cinnamon donuts and caramel apples.  The only problem is those foods aren’t the healthiest.  I created this recipe to help me enjoy all of the fall things without the guilt. The only thing that I needed when I ate this is a cozy sweater and some knee-high boots.

Chia seeds have been in heavy rotation in our house lately, and chia seed pudding is one of the ways we enjoy them. I had a taste for something sweet crunchy and chewy.   Caramel apples fit the bill. So I decided to make a healthier version of my favorite fall classic.

This recipe is so easy and so delicious that you must make it!  I really wasn’t sure how it would turn out.  However, when I got a spoon full of the ooey chia seeds, and a nice crunch from the apples, along with the sweetness of the caramel sauce my taste buds were singing!

I made this recipe dairy free because as I mentioned before, most dairy upsets my stomach.   And I wanted a sweet treat that wasn’t hard on my stomach or my waistline.
