This recipe was adapted from a recipe on allrecipes.com. Over the years it has been modified to become the healthier alternative to other pumpkin chocolate chip recipes. While it’s important to be mindful of how often you have desserts, this recipe is a great alternative to traditional recipes when you want a little something sweet. I hope you enjoy!
This recipe makes busy mornings easier and can even be made portable by making in a mason jar with a lid. The oats “cook” and soften in the almond milk while the chia seed helps to thicken up the recipe, making it a hearty and filling breakfast.
A friend of mine read an article I recently wrote regarding self-confidence. As a comment he asked about the flip side of self-confidence, asking “What is the source of our insecurities?”
I think that’s an excellent question, and one the majority of us avoid because of how difficult it is to ask ourselves. It’s difficult because it acknowledges insecurities, which by default also acknowledges weakness. Yet, if we don’t face who we truly are, it’s impossible to fulfill our potential. Looking into a self-reflective mirror and observing what we see with no excuses, bias or prejudice is not easy; especially, if we spend little time conscientiously working on cultivating and improving our character.
In order to understand the source of our insecurities, we have to have a basic understanding of neurology and how the brain works.
