The Cookbook

This amazing Chocolate Pudding Pie comes to you from a brand new cookbook called Sweet, Savory & Free by Debbie Adler.  Debbie is the owner of the allergy-free/gluten-free/sugar-free bakery Sweet Debbie’s Organic Cupcakes, and author of the award-winning cookbook, Sweet Debbie’s Organic Treats.

Allergy-free & Vegan cookbook by Debbie Adler

What I absolutely love about this cookbook is that every recipe is not only free from the Top 8 Allergens, but it’s also Vegan and Gluten-free!  A very rare find indeed.  Usually you find vegan recipes that contain nuts or gluten-free ones that contains eggs or allergy cookbooks that are loaded with meat.  But this book covers it all…. Thank you Debbie!  I was also impressed by the extensive guide in the beginning of this cookbook to help with those navigating food allergies or a vegan lifestyle.  So incredibly helpful.


With over 100 recipes & lots of beautiful pictures, it was hard to decide on what one to try first. But as expected, I went straight to the dessert section and picked out this Chocolate Pudding Pie with a seed crust.  I knew it would be one that you would want to try too.

2 Step Chocolate Pudding Pie

This seed based crust makes up the first layer and comes together in no time.   No baking, no flours, and no fuss, is something this busy mom loves.  The pudding is also incredibly easy to whip up and reminds me of my Chocolate Avocado Mousse.  That’s right, avocado!  The avocado hiding out in the chocolate pudding adds a boost of potassium, a rich creaminess, and a smooth texture that makes it taste like custard.

These 2 delightful layers are then frozen until you’re ready to devour enjoy. Of course, you could actually eat the chocolate pudding pie as is, but that wouldn’t be quite as fun now would it?  Pipe a little homemade coconut whip on top (OR cheat like I did use CocoWhip from So Delicious Dairy Free) and you’ll feel guilty for a moment, until you remember that it’s actually a clean eating treat.

Soooo clean, that I actually grabbed a Chocolate Pudding Pie (sans the whip) for breakfast. Sometimes Summer mornings are a little more busy than when the kids were in school.  Just be sure to bring a napkin with if you choose this route, because it does melt in your mouth AND in your hands.

If you are wondering what makes this a healthier treat, let me give you a quick look at some of the ingredients:

  • Pumpkin & Sunflower Seeds
  • Hemp Seeds (although I was out so I used Chia & it worked out wonderfully)
  • Dates
  • Green Tea
  • Cacao
  • Sunflower Seed Butter
  • Avocado

It’s like taking the best superfoods, fats & sweeteners and putting them all together to make a Super Scooby Snack!

    This might be the healthiest sounding dessert I’ve come across! And yet it looks so decadent…looking at delicious foods while fasting is very torturous but this one’s worth it 🙂

      Yes, it is so hard to look at recipes while fasting but at least you can start planning some healthier options to celebrate when you are done!
