Ohhh my MY. These cardamom CARAMEL and pear cookie crumble cups (say that three times fast!) are like a giant dessert hug from all that is fall and I am SO excited to share this easy and incredibly splendid recipe with you.
THEY ARE BEYOND, YOU GUYS. I know I say that sort of thing a lot around here, but uhhhh my goodness.

Sound like a plan? 😉
Let me paint a picture for you: sweet seasonal pears draped in a gently spiced coconut sugar caramel over creamy vanilla ice cream with the best grain free crunchy cookies that are smartly sweetened and entirely plant based. How could you not be obsessed?
Which is why I’m teaming up with Simple Mills to bring you this cardamom caramel and pear cookie crumble cup recipe – because enjoying the best of this season should be not only good but also good for you.
These chocolate coconut almond bliss balls are a crazy easy paleo friendly and vegan dessert made using only the yummiest + cleanest ingredients – chocolate, coconut, maple syrup and coconut oil are combined to make this decadent yet healthy treat!
I’m fairly sure I know exactly what you’re thinking – do we really need one more treat recipe? I’m going to go ahead and say that yes, when it’s a recipe for these chocolate coconut almond bliss balls, the answer is most definitely yes.
Because this is not your ordinary treat recipe. These little bliss balls are:
A) Dairy free
B) Naturally sweetened
C) Made with only 6 ingredients, two of which are vanilla extract and sea salt
D) Waaaaay easier to make than they seem (read: option to appear fancy AF at your next gathering without doing anything more difficult than making the easiest cookie recipe)
BOOM. So much more to offer than your ordinary truffle.
When you’re on your tenth watermelon of the summer, you start to get reaaaally creative with different ways to use it! You’ll see a couple of watermelon recipes coming up on the blog for that very reason. The first of which, is this creamy watermelon chia seed pudding!
Creamy watermelon chia seed pudding? Sounds a little… strange, right? It sounded pretty strange to me at first, too. So strange that even though the recipe came out perfectly on my first round of testing, I had to make it two more times just to be sure that I wasn’t making up the fact that it was DELICIOUS.
I actually kind of had to convince myself that this was a good idea. And now, I do believe it’s my job to convince YOU that’s it a good idea, too 🙂
The base for the chia seed pudding starts by blending together fresh cut pieces of juicy watermelon, greek yogurt (Stay with me here. You can also sub in coconut yogurt for a dairy free option), lemon juice, and a little maple syrup to gently sweeten things up. The chia seeds are whisked in, and once their plumped up, the pudding is layered into little cups with fresh berries, and more juicy watermelon.
