Chocolate Chia Pudding Gummies (Guest Post – RECIPE!!)


 *All New* Guest post from a fellow healthy eater/chef who makes the most amazing gluten-free options and gears her cooking towards the Paleo audience at her website: Cook It Up Paleo.  Heather comes up with amazing healthy options for the adored (unhealthy) foods like her newest recipe for Graham crackers – something I never thought I’d be able to eat again!  She makes it using cassava flour & coconut flour, instead of wheat, rice, or sorghum flour.  She uses really healthy ingredients too, so not only are these delicious but they are packed with nutrition.  She did it again with this latest recipe the Chocolate Chia Pudding Gummies–Which we get to snack on first!   You must check out her blog. 

Alright, let’s get to that recipe!  Thanks again Heather for taking the time to come up with this recipe for my readers.  Enjoy everyone! ❤

Chocolate Chia Pudding Gummies

Hi everyone! My name is Heather Resler and I am so excited to be guest posting for Jem! I am the 18 year old blogger behind Cook It Up Paleo. I was diagnosed with celiac disease at age 16, and have regained my health through a healthy lifestyle and a paleo diet.

But now on to this recipe. It’s basically a conglomeration of all the things I love: chocolate, chia seeds, coconut, and pudding!

These gummies are easy to make and taste delicious. The gelatin is amazing for the hair, skin, and nails, and the chia seeds have nourishing fiber. And the chocolate is good for you too, of course!
