Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding Parfait



I know, I know quit it with the pumpkin recipes already! It’s inadvertently turned into Pumpkin Week. I promise to lay off pumpkin after this.

Wait, no I don’t. Who do you think I am here? I can’t make any promises when it comes to pumpkin. I can only promise that I fell in love with this pumpkin pudding and I think you will too. I’ve made it 3 times already and it’s strangely addictive.

I don’t know why, but I haven’t made chia pudding since 2009 or early 2010. I guess I didn’t like it as much as I thought. I think the problem with my original attempt was that I made it too slimy. It was too heavy on the chia seeds (slim factor) and too light on filler ingredients.


Last week while I was busy screwing up perfectly good pumpkin pies with avocado, I decided that I really want to eat an entire bowl of pumpkin pie filling. You know, normal thoughts. If you’ve made the Pumpkin Pie Brownie you probably know how delicious the pumpkin filling is! I could live off that stuff. Or I wish I could live of that stuff.


My goal was to make a pumpkin-based pudding made with chia seeds. I envisioned it very similar to my Vegan Overnight Oats, only without the oats, but with the addition of a vanilla protein powder for some staying power. I also wanted it to taste like pumpkin pie filling, of course.

I Googled ‘Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding’ to see what was already out there. I found recipes by Living Lindsay, Spinach and Yoga, The Non Dairy Queen, Confessions of a Young Woman, Choosing Raw, Edible Perspective, The Challenged Health Nut, and Pure 2 Raw, to name just a handful! Apparently, I’m not the only one who wants to eat a bowl full of pumpkin pie.

After checking out a few recipes I decided to just throw stuff in a bowl and taste test as I went. This recipe is very similar to my Pumpkin Pie Vegan Overnight Oats. It’s not too heavy on the chia seeds and it’s thinner and smoother in consistency than many pudding recipes. I didn’t find this pudding too slimy unlike my previous attempts.



This pudding takes just 5 minutes to throw together. Exactly why I’ve made it 3 times already!

I recommend chilling your can of pumpkin if you can. This just means that your pudding will chill faster after making it. No big deal if you don’t though.


A peek at the ingredients I used:


After mixing:


The pudding thickens slightly in the fridge, but the consistency is still pretty thin compared to “normal” puddings. If you want it thicker you can try using less Almond Milk. Personally, I like more volume.


I’m working on a gluten-free version of my Wedded Bliss Soft Ginger Cookies and made parfaits for Eric and I for dessert. It was such a tasty, light dessert for the Fall season! I love a dessert that doesn’t weigh me down.

You can also try adding raisins or walnuts, or whatever tickles your fancy.


What I like about this recipe is how versatile it is. So far, I’ve had it for breakfast, a snack, and now dessert.

When I start eating this for dinner, I think an intervention might be necessary.


I’m off to finally get my ultrasound results this morning! My doctor was away for a couple weeks, so I haven’t been able to find out the results yet. My food sensitivity testing, which was scheduled early this week, was also rescheduled to next Wednesday. So I’ve been playing the waiting game which is why you haven’t had any updates from me yet.

Anyways, fingers crossed for good results! If you don’t know what the heck I’m talking about, see this post.

Happy Friday!

Never enough pumpkin! I love chia pudding and can’t wait to make this. I made peach chia pudding all summer and fell in love with it’s cobbler-like taste when heated. I wonder how pumpkin would be warmed?


2 Angela (Oh She Glows) October 14, 2011

I will have to try warming it, good idea!


3 Aine @ Something to Chew Over October 14, 2011

This looks so good! I love parfaits – they’re perfect ;)


4 Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga October 14, 2011

Oh it looks awesome. And love the parfait cup layers. You are a patient woman getting those layers in there just so, and without making a smeary mess on the glass. Nice work. And of course on the lovely recipe.

I havent made chia pudding in ages either. But I sure have been rockin’ the pumpkin eats. I think I may turn orange soon :)

Your dessert link backs to the cookies and the brownie…oh, I want. I want.


5 Lauren @ What Lauren Likes October 14, 2011

Yeah for pumpkin week :) These look amazing! Can’t wait to try!


6 Beth - Tasty Yummies October 14, 2011

Holy pumpkin deliciousness – this looks amazing!! I cannot get enough pumpkin recipes right now either! I am obsessed. Can’t wait to try this one!


7 Kelsey @ Living the Gluten Free Life October 14, 2011

I have never made chia pudding but this looks so tasty! I think I will definitely be having to make a batch of this over the weekend. Can’t wait til the GF ginger cookies to crumble on top!


8 Lauren at Keep It Sweet October 14, 2011

Don’t stop with the pumpkin, I am addicted! Another recipe I want to make:-)


9 Anna @ On Anna's Plate October 14, 2011

Parfaits are just so…pretty! They’re the perfect dessert :-)


10 Cait's Plate October 14, 2011

I love the idea of the chia seed addition! I’m making pumpkin pancakes right now – I really should have added some in!


11 Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat October 14, 2011

This looks delicious Ange! And I remember those soft ginger cookies… think I’m going to need to make a batch this month because they are so so good! Good luck with your test results.. I hope the news is positive!


12 Hilliary @ Happily Ever Healthy October 14, 2011

I am totally ok with tons of pumpkin recipes! These look great!


13 Lynn October 14, 2011

This looks amazing!! Can’t wait to make it!


14 Claire @ Live and Love to Eat October 14, 2011

Been looking forward to this since you mentioned it yesterday, and it looks amazing! I don’t think I’ll be able to resist adding the ginger cookies!


15 Cat @Breakfast to Bed October 14, 2011

There is just nothing bad about that, is there? Wowzers.


16 Sara October 14, 2011

I can FINALLY see the new header. LOVE IT!
Hope the doctor goes well.


17 Angela (Oh She Glows) October 14, 2011

Wow I wonder what took so long! lol. Thanks :)


18 kathleen @ the daily crumb October 14, 2011

no such thing as too much pumpkin!! and i am always looking for new pumpkin breakfast ideas. love this!


19 Faith @ For the Health of It October 14, 2011

There’s no such thing as too much pumpkin – especially since this is my first time participating in the deliciousness! Keep these awesome recipes coming! Now excuse me while I go scheme about vegan pumpkin ravioli…


20 Angela (Oh She Glows) October 14, 2011

That sounds delicious :)


21 Felicia (Natural + Balanced) October 14, 2011

nooo don’t stop with the pumpkin recipes! this pudding sounds so good and adding protein powder is a really good idea! i’ll keep this one in mind :)


22 Sweet and Savvy October 14, 2011

I will be trying this Out as soon as I get home today.:)


23 Gina @ Running to the Kitchen October 14, 2011

I am not sick of pumpkin in the slightest, keep ’em coming! This looks like such a perfect snack idea, especially around 3pm when I want to raid my entire fridge and pantry every day!


24 katie@ KatieDid October 14, 2011

mmmm this looks incredible. I also love desserts that aren’t too heavy or too sweet. I normally have big bowls of berries, yogurt, and almond butter. I know some people wouldn’t consider that dessert but it works for me!


25 Mai October 14, 2011

Looks SO good! I need to make this as soon as I get some pumpkin!
For some reason, I am having so much trouble finding canned pumpkin here.


26 Amy @ The Whole Sweet Scoop October 14, 2011

And there it is.. Now I’ll probably make it every single day until I can’t stomach it anymore, because that’s what I always do. Haha – self control? Not this lady ;)


27 Angela (Oh She Glows) October 14, 2011

I hear ya!


28 Jacqueline October 14, 2011

I just made this. I had made another version a few weeks ago but it was from a different recipe and called for a bunch of stuff that I was skeptical about and clearly right because it tasted awful and was slimy. This is definitely a much better version!
Goodluck on your tests! I have celiacs along with lactose intolerance and IBS AND allergies to other things, which cause terrible hospital trips. So, I hope that everything for you turns out okay because its not an easy thing to deal with at all. Before they found out I had celiacs I couldn’t leave my bed most days and the pain was pretty intense. I think the blog Gluten Free Girl pretty much sums it up, if you have celiacs you definitely know you have a serious problem even before the test. Brown rice to the rescue haha


29 Angela (Oh She Glows) October 14, 2011

Thanks Jacqueline, I’m glad you like the pudding. Also, thanks for your support! I’m sorry to hear about your medical issues, but I’m glad that you were able to figure out what was causing the trouble.


30 Lillian October 14, 2011

Holy deliciousness, Batman – this looks fantastic! I also lurve the abundance of pumkin recipes this week, since I basically am a pumpkin addict. I look forward to trying this and feeding my addiction! :)


31 The Mrs @ Success Along the Weigh October 14, 2011

Squeeeeee ginger cookies!! I’m sorry, I know that’s not what the takeaway from this post was supposed to be but I’m seriously jonesing for some of those! Off to print the recipe…woosh!


32 Lauren October 14, 2011

Yum! I’ve been making chia pudding everynight to have over top a banana in the morning for breakfast. It’s my new favorite breakfast!


33 Pure2raw twins October 14, 2011

Angela that pumpkin chia parfait looks incredible! So glad to hear that you enjoyed pumpkin and chia together as well! We always love the texture chia seeds provide our pumpkin puddings. And there is never too much pumpkin! We enjoy it all the time! and thanks for the link love :) HUGS


34 Angela (Oh She Glows) October 14, 2011

Thank you for the recipe inspiration!!


35 Ashley October 14, 2011

I love everything pumpkin right now! I can’t get enough of it! This looks amazing!


36 Erin October 14, 2011

I seriously had a dream the other night that I was on Chopped and the secret ingredient was chia seeds. Now I know exactly what I could do with them! haha!


37 Angela (Oh She Glows) October 14, 2011

it’s fate :)


38 Alex @ Raw Recovery October 14, 2011

Oh my gosh this looks like the perfect (and easy!) fall dessert! I’m so excited to have a fall party and serve this to guests!


39 Angela (Oh She Glows) October 14, 2011

It was fun (and very light!). I suggest if you serve it for dessert to add more maple syrup and make it a bit sweeter.


40 Heather (heathers dish) October 14, 2011

Yes, yes I will be making this over the weekend! Sounds heavenly!


41 Carolyn @ HealthKitten.com October 14, 2011

I think I need another day this weekend to make (and eat!) all the delicious things you’ve posted this week! So far, I have 4 meals and desserts. I can have cookies for breakfast, right? ;)

Sending good health vibes to you and hope the ultrasound gives you some answers and a plan to move forward with your health.


42 Angela (Oh She Glows) October 14, 2011

umm yes it’s the weekend, right? ;)
Thanks for your good wishes!


43 Kaitlyn@TheTieDyeFiles October 14, 2011

I’ll never get tired of pumpkin recipes, keep em comin! This looks amazing, especially with the cookies.


44 Melomeals: Vegan for $3.33 a Day October 14, 2011

Yum… I just love pumpkin chia pudding.. and those gingersnaps look really lovely


45 Abby White@Eat, Drink and Be Aware October 14, 2011

Hello Angela:

That parfait looks amazing and I am going to have to make those Ginger Cookies! I made your Pumpkin Pie Brownies earlier this week and they have already been gobbled up. Thank you for all the amazing recipes. Have a great day!


46 Angela (Oh She Glows) October 14, 2011

I’m glad you enjoyed the brownies Abby!


47 Ambika S. October 14, 2011

So last night, I made your pumpkin mac n cheese for dinner. And I just made this pudding for breakfast. They are both AMAZING!! The pasta was so rich and creamy, and the pudding has the taste and texture of the best pumpkin pie filling.

Thank you for enabling my pumpkin addiction, and helping me to ensure I’ll be sporting a lovely orange glow =)


48 Angela (Oh She Glows) October 14, 2011

Wow you’re on fire! :) Glad you enjoyed them. I think our meals were the same the past day ;)


49 Leanne @ Healthful Pursuit October 14, 2011

Mmm pumpkin chia pudding. I’ve been having this same sort of thing for a couple of weeks now but I’ve been adding about 1 tbsp melted coconut butter on top then letting it harden in the fridge. SO good!
Good luck with your results, Angela. Looking forward to seeing what the doctor has to say. All good news, I’m sure :)


50 Ashley October 14, 2011

Thinking about you today!! Hope you get some answers! The parfaits look fantastic. If you’re wanting the pudding to be thicker, you can add more chia seeds, but blend it up…totally gets rid of the slime factor!! ;) Looks completely amazing as is though! Paired with crunchy spiced cookies, I can’t even imagine. I have plans to make something similar, but am going to try a version of GF lady fingers to layer with the pumpkin. Now all I can think about is pumpkin….mmm


51 Rebekah October 14, 2011

I am so glad that someone else shares my affinity for pumkin! Keep ’em coming.. :)


52 Krystina (Organically Me) October 14, 2011

Every time I’ve made chia seed pudding, it was terrible. It was SO thick and slimy that eating it was incredibly difficult. This looks way better than any other pudding I’ve seen.


53 Sarah October 14, 2011

I’m not a huge fan of pumpkin pie, but I have to say, these look so good I might have to test it out! You may have converted me! :)


54 Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin October 14, 2011

Please don’t lay off the pumpkin recipes after this – just keep ’em coming! :D

I think this will make a perfect post-workout snack today. I can’t wait to make it! Also, I adore that E.D. Smith pumpkin. I’ve tried out so many different brands of canned pumpkin, but I just keep on going back to that kind!


55 Tania October 14, 2011

Good luck for your appointment. I hope it all goes well and you get some answers.


56 Moni'sMeals October 14, 2011

anything in a parfait layer I love I have decided!

This filling sounds great, pretty similiar to what I do. BUT I have no cookies like yours and I am going to fix that real fast.

Hey at least you are full of Vitamin A with all this pumpkin~~ :)


57 Jenny @ Simply Be...me October 14, 2011

I’ve never tried chia pudding because of the slime factor but I might get brave and try this simply because it has pumpkin and ginger cookies in it :)

Good luck today at the doctor!


58 Becca October 14, 2011

I noticed that one of the parfaits is bigger than the other. Who got the runt parfait, you or Eric? ;)


59 Angela (Oh She Glows) October 14, 2011

he wanted more cookies whereas I wanted more pumpkin :) I had the one on the right!


60 Marie@feedingfive October 14, 2011

Your blog is very orange lately, I love it. Your food photos are stunning and delicious.


61 Angela (Oh She Glows) October 14, 2011

I just noticed how orange it was!


62 Emmy (Wine and Butter) October 14, 2011

OMG – Good luck with the scans – those sorts of things are SO stressul. I had really horrible and prolonged ovary related stresses (although mine were linked to amenhorrhea) and the word I would use to sum up the event best is FRUSTRATING. I hope you get definite answers sooN! xox


63 Angela (Oh She Glows) October 14, 2011

Thanks Emmy!


64 Amber K October 14, 2011

Hope your doctor is full of answers! I haven’t been able to find many for myself. Mostly just general blood tests that show “everything is perfectly fine.” That’s sooo not helpful!

Have a great appointment!


65 Carley October 14, 2011

This is AMAZiNG!! I was skeptical about how much it would taste like pumpkin pie filling but it is SOO good!!
Thank you!!


66 Angela (Oh She Glows) October 14, 2011

Hey Carley, I’m happy you think so too!


67 Jen Doyle October 14, 2011

Good luck at your appointment!!! And your comments about a hollistic nutritionist gave me the great idea to go to one myself. I LOVE pumpkin recipes and keep them coming!!! There is no such thing as too much! An idea for future recipes could be more desserts with beans as a substitute for flour… such as Black Bean Brownies and Chickpeas in cookies and raw cookie dough etc. Thanks xoxo


68 Angela (Oh She Glows) October 14, 2011

I’ve had a bad experience with black bean brownies in the past, but I’ve been meaning to try happy herbivore’s as I heard they are great.


69 Lauren October 14, 2011

I LOVE all of the pumpkin recipes! Good luck with all your doctor visits.


70 Kris | iheartwellness.com October 14, 2011

You inspire me to eat more dessert for breakfast ;) I think I bump my nose on my mac screen every time you post trying to gaze at the pics…..keep inspiring!

Good luck today! I wanna hear about it <3



71 Becca October 14, 2011

I just made this recipe! Only I used molasses instead of maple syrup (GREAT substitution, sort of like your smoothie from earlier this week).

I layered my parfait with homemade pumpkin gingerbread and pumpkin seeds.


72 Angela (Oh She Glows) October 14, 2011

I was thinking about making it with molasses, yum! Glad it worked.


73 KellyK October 14, 2011

What a great recipe! Easy, short list of ingredients, I am going to have to make this. Thanks!


74 VeggieGirl October 14, 2011

Your pumpking posts have been inspiring! I picked up a can today so I can make the pumpkin mac and cheese :D


75 brooks_25years October 14, 2011

Oh. Making these tonight. Beautiful.


76 Kaila @healthyhelperblog! October 14, 2011

What a great alternative to yogurt! This looks so delicious! I am sure it would make a great pumpkin pie filling!!


77 Alexandria Lewis October 14, 2011

Excited to try this out for dessert and breakfast especially with your ginger cookies!!


78 Lindsey October 14, 2011

bring on the pumpkin!!! it’s a shame so many are wasted in the name of decoration…we, for our part, should personally shoot to close that gap.


79 Rachel October 14, 2011

Hey Ang, have you gone gluten-free for the most part? I know you were consulting with a naturopath, but I see so many GF recipes on here now. NOT that I’m complaining… I LOVE IT! You’re making my life 1000x easier ’cause I can never find GF AND vegan recipes anywhere. I’m just curious. :)


80 Tammy October 14, 2011

Looks YUMMY!!!

Just noticed you in the “Women of The Year” pages of my new Chatelaine magazine! Congrats!! :)


81 Angela (Oh She Glows) October 15, 2011

Thanks Tammy! I didn’t know until someone told me yesterday on facebook (they haven’t announced the winners online)! Pretty cool :) I will have to look for the new issue.


82 Kristen Waby October 14, 2011

You take the most beautiful food pics! What kind of camera do you use? Good luck at the doctors. I hope all goes well for you!


83 sarah@spinach and spice October 14, 2011

I love the texture of desserts like this! I’ve been pumpkin deprived since moving to college.. they don’t have it ANYWHERE on campus :( So drooling over this needless to say ;)


84 Eat Hike Sleep Repeat October 14, 2011

i use to think that chocolate chip cookies were the only cookies worthy of eating. However, I have come to really love ginger cookies. Looking forward to your vegan recipe for these!


85 Eat Hike Sleep Repeat October 14, 2011

My bad. I read ginger cookie and got too excited… I see that you are going to make the cookie recipe gluten free. Your original recipe is already vegan. Woo hoo! Off to do some baking :)


86 Ella, RD October 14, 2011

Do you think you could put this in pumpkin pie crust and serve as a chilled pumpkin-pie alternative? or potentially bake it a little to make it more solid and then serve as a pie?


87 Angela (Oh She Glows) October 16, 2011

Hey Ella,
I don’t think it would bake up thick enough for a pie. I hope to make a pumpkin pie soon though!


88 Michaela October 14, 2011

fingers crossed for you!


89 Katrina October 14, 2011

Yum! This parfait is so scrumptious looking!


90 Olya October 14, 2011

That looks divine! If I only had time to make all the stuff you’re posting! When is your book coming up? I think it should be all about baking, only baking!


91 Angela (Oh She Glows) October 16, 2011

heh :) Hopefully soon!


92 Alicia October 14, 2011

Don’t stop posting pumpkin recipes–I love all the fall-inspired treats! And I love that you added chia seeds to your pudding…I made peanut butter banana chia seed pudding yesterday and it was amazing! Thank you :)


93 Melissa S October 14, 2011

This recipe is fantastic! I am currently fighting a horrible cold, and this is the only food I had a craving to eat. Keep the pumpkin recipes coming :)


94 Ashley October 14, 2011

I haven’t tried chia pudding yet so maybe I should start with this one and I’ll instantly be a fan :)


95 emma October 14, 2011

mmmmmm! delicious! gbnna make this as soon as i get me some pumpkin!


96 Emily @ The Divine Carrot October 15, 2011

These recipes look amaaazing. Unfortunately they don’t have canned pumpkin here in Germany!! That’s something I miss soooo much!


97 Kari @ bite-sized thoughts October 15, 2011

Mmmm. I’m rather glad you haven’t stopped with the pumpkin yet – this looks divine :)


98 Hayley @ Oat Couture October 15, 2011

Good luck with your tests and ultrasound results! :)


99 jess white October 15, 2011

102 Sharon @ Bit of the Good Stuff October 15, 2011

This dessert looks absolutely delicious and your photos are amazing! I can’t wait to give it a try!
Have a great weekend Angela! xx


103 Heather October 15, 2011

I was wondering if you could use Quinoa flour in the Ginger cookies? I’m excited that you are seeing a Holistic Nutritionist, I am an RHN myself :) Keep glowing Angela.


104 Angela (Oh She Glows) October 15, 2011

I’m not too sure Heather, I haven’t used Quinoa flour before. How does it bake/taste?


105 Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers October 15, 2011

I can’t seem to get enough pumpkin, that’s all I have eaten,and that’s all I have made! Angela, I have to tell you I put you Pumpkin Butter in my ice cream, OMG! It was just like Pumpkin Ice Cream with out have the crap that is in the stuff at the stores. I also had it with apples and greek yogurt with some granola, Perfect!! I love your pumpkin recipes, l keep them coming!!


106 Angela (Oh She Glows) October 15, 2011

that’s such a good idea!


107 Mareah October 15, 2011

This looks absolutely TO DIE FOR. And please, keep the pumpkin recipes coming! I’m loving it!! :-)



108 Nikita October 15, 2011

Bring on the pumpkin recipes! I can never get enough :)


109 Katie @ BloomEveryday October 15, 2011

Wow – look at these! They look like a perfectly heavenly dessert treat. :)


110 Vanessa October 15, 2011

Your blog is one of my favourites to read in the fall. The pictures and the recipes scream fall I absolutely LOVE it!!!


111 Angela (Oh She Glows) October 16, 2011

Thanks Vanessa!


112 Jonathan October 15, 2011

There is NO reason to apologize for the pumpkin overload. With the weather cooling and leaves changing, I am all for pumpkin _everything_ right now. And thanks to your post, that will most definitely include pumpkin chia pudding. A desire to make chia pudding has been percolating in my head for the last week or so, so this must be kismet.

Thank you!


113 jaime October 15, 2011

This looks delicious:) I actually made mini pumpkin pies using a chia “egg”, and they turned out pretty good. Not quite a “dense” as I would have liked, but enough that it still held it’s form. I remember doing a pie last year and using flax “egg” and also some cornstarch, and it was good too.


114 Angela (Oh She Glows) October 16, 2011

I will have to keep that in mind, thanks for letting me know a chia egg worked for you!


115 Jaime October 22, 2011

No prob:) Just curious as to whether you think that chia works better in some recipes, and flax in others? I find that chia gets much more “congealed”, which is good.


116 Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) October 15, 2011

Wow! This is what I need tonight! Luckily I just roasted a huge pumpkin and I have chia seeds! This looks amazingly delicious!


117 Kristin @ STUFT Mama October 15, 2011

This just looks devine! I love that it only takes 5 minutes to put together. Good thing I stocked up on pumpkin at Trader Joe’s the other day. :) Let me know if you end up eating it for dinner….. I’ll be right behind you. ha!


118 Tracy @ Tracy's Treats October 15, 2011

You had me at pumpkin :-)


119 Jocelyn @ Peace Love Nutrition October 15, 2011

Pumpkin is my favorite thing about fall : )


120 Nic@diningwithastud October 16, 2011

Love this! Im obsessed with chia at the moment


121 Sophie @ LoveLiveAndLearn October 16, 2011

Ooh this looks tasty, so autumnal!
Those cookies look delicious :-)


122 Colleen October 16, 2011

When I read “ultrasound” I freaked out and thought you were pregnant ;) I hope you receive good news! Your pumpkin chia pudding with ginger cookies looks so delicious!!


123 Tamicka October 16, 2011

Ummm made this last night and ate it this morning with ginger snaps. Let me say amazing!


124 Kelsey October 16, 2011

I made this pudding as per your recipe – it was great by itself for dessert, and leftovers were a perfect addition to a morning orange monster!
Thanks for the idea!


125 Anastasia October 16, 2011

I have pumpkin week on my blog, too! The picture of your pudding is so amazing, I decided to make it before I even read the recipe!


126 Varsha October 16, 2011

I absolutely DON’T like pumpkin.

That was yesterday.
Before I tried the recipe.
With a few tweaks.

I had been “TRYING” to go vegetarian this past week, and was about to give up, when I saw this SUPAH DUPAH HUNK of a thing! Now, I might just directly jump up to vegan :)
You r like Superwoman/Batgirl …or Supervegan ….Batvegan….. VeganBat??? ;)

Good luck with the doc.


127 amy October 16, 2011

Can you possibly post the Pumpkin brownie recipe, the link goes to your holiday dinner party And Ivan only see the cupcake recipe on the recipient’s. Sorry, but unless I am losing it, I can’T seem to find it. Thanks!!


128 Heidi October 16, 2011

Please NEVER stop with the pumpkin recipes …. love them! :)


129 Mara October 16, 2011

Oh good pumpkin heaven! It started yesterday when I made your pumpkin brownie pie for the first time. Where do I begin???? I think, no let me rephrase that, definitely my go-to pumpkin baked-good recipe!!! My husband and I polished the entire pie off already. Is that sick or just simply right? I think it’s all good, haha! Then I went on to make the roasted tomato pesto. Oh my word! You are simply the best Angela! Thank you! However, how do you not eat everything you make all at once? I could eat the pumpkin layer baked all on it’s own! hmmm, recipe idea perhaps for just a pumpkin filling cake?!?


130 Alethia October 16, 2011

I find your blog inspiring. I also found some great people through your directory.

This looks divine!

I had this pudding for breakfast today, what an amazing way to start my day. Then, on my way to work I was drawn to Starbucks for a pumpkin spice soy latte. You’ve created a pumpkin addict. Your next blog should be a 12 step program to cure our pumpkin addictions.

hehe glad you enjoyed it!


133 Andrea October 17, 2011

I want to make this and look forward to a pie version (though I’m sure if I googled I’d find plenty of them).


134 Erica @ Cupcakes & Coffee Breaks October 17, 2011

I am going home to make this tonight, for sure! I am an outright pumpkin addict, and am so obsessed with these recipes. I made your pumpkin gingerbread the other day and it was unbelievable, the texture was perfect! I hope you keep the pumpkin recipes coming so I can continue to pay my respects to the gods of autumn vegetables :)


135 Elizabeth October 17, 2011

Yum !!! Obsessed with pumpkin recently…I made this last night with some ginger cookies! Then put it in my oatmeal this morning…then had some mixed into my ice cream. Tomorrow I will try it in my yogurt. Yum! Thanks for the idea


136 Angela (Oh She Glows) October 18, 2011

Glad to hear that!


137 Andrea October 18, 2011

I made this last night to eat for breakfast this morning. It is so.good.

I’m dying to try your pumpkin brownie…but cannot get coconut oil where I am. What would work as a substitute??


139 Bethany October 19, 2011

Hey Angela! I have a question for you about refrigerated almond milk vs. non refrigerated. I just now discovered the non-refrigerated non-dairy milks, and they seem to be much cheaper for the same number of ounces. Is there a difference between the two, or does one have preservatives and one doesn’t?


140 Jen October 19, 2011

Hi Angela! Thank you for all of your wonderful recipe ideas! I haven’t tried this one yet, but I was wondering…instead of canned pumpkin, can I use actual filling from a pumpkin, or will that decrease the thickness?
Have a wonderful day!


141 Angela (Oh She Glows) October 19, 2011

Hey Jen! I’m not really sure as I have yet to try using fresh pumpkin in my recipes yet. Goodluck if you try it!


142 Erin October 19, 2011

I’m sure you’ve had a million people suggesting things that may be bothering you to cause digestive problems but look into Fructose Malabsorption if you haven’t heard about it yet in your research. Apparently very few people know about it but it’s easy to test for and causes a lot of the digestion symptoms you’re describing.


143 julie October 19, 2011

please don’t stop the pumpkin madness! i’m eating up every bit!!


144 Jen October 20, 2011

Loving all of your pumpkin recipes! Made a version of your pumpkin brownie pie, and just made this pudding! So delicious, really like eating pumpkin pie filling!


145 Michelle October 22, 2011

I made this treat thus morning and had a bit with lunch! Wow! So creamy and delicious! I’ve even snuck an extra spoon full – just because I can! Lol!


146 Meg October 24, 2011

Angela, I had to let you know that I just had this for breakfast and it was phenomenal :D Thank you! I love chia seeds, but have no idea why I never thought of pumpkin pudding!? Thank you :)


147 Marcy October 24, 2011

is this a valid breakfast food ;)


148 Ellen Clifford November 9, 2011

Just made this and enjoyed it-tho I’m thinking I should have added the cookies to go with the crunch of the chias…


149 Marla January 24, 2013

Can you give some suggestions for a good vanilla protein powder? I’ve tried a couple of vegan ones and the flavor was just okay, and not really vanilla-y at all.


150 Andrea (@FrSeed2Stomach) November 3, 2013

I’ve been dying to make pumpkin chia seed pudding for weeks and just whipped up my first batch using this recipe! Thanks so much. Can’t wait to dig in :-)


151 Kyle November 18, 2013

Is it better to eat the pudding right away or give it time to chill?


152 Angela (Oh She Glows) November 19, 2013

It’s best to allow it to chill in the fridge for a few hours. Enjoy!


153 Linda Schild-Jones May 3, 2016

This was a complete bust for me!!!! I could not wait to try. Follow the directions to the letter (so unlike me as a very experienced cook). I ended up with a sweet tasting, pumpkin soup. It never would set up or thicken. I would advise finding a recipe elsewhere!
