Chocolate Peanut Butter Chia Pudding recipe – healthy and filling chia seeds pudding with chocolate and peanut butter. The best way to enjoy the benefits of chia seeds!
I give you my favorite weekday breakfast of choice: chia pudding with peanut butter and chocolate. Healthy, filling and so so delicious! I am obsessed!
I was hesitant to try making chia pudding at first but my curiosity got the best of me and I am so glad it did. Don’t get me wrong. I still love my overnight oats but this! This is what healthy should taste like. Healthy food should make you feel good, not miserable. This chia pudding will make you a chia seeds fan for sure! Chia seeds are high in fiber, have 2 grams of protein per tablespoon, are full or antioxidants, rich in calcium. They are a superfood!
Also, let’s just get it out of the way and say that every time you hear chia – you are singing in your head: “ch-ch-ch-chia!!” LOL Right? I don’t think I can not say it in my head every time I open the bag of chia seeds. 😀
What I love about this breakfast idea (aside from the health benefits) is that I can mix it up the night before, and it’s ready to go in the morning. Grab and go or enjoy while catching up on emails. My favorite flavor is the peanut butter and chocolate combo but I also like it plain vanilla. The toppings can be anything you would add to your oatmeal or yogurt. I actually love vanilla Greek yogurt, chopped dark chocolate, sliced bananas and chopped nuts. If I make it just with milk and vanilla extract, I top it with yogurt and dried cranberries. So good!
For this recipe, I used chia seeds from Chosen Foods (love this brand!), unsweetened cocoa powder, peanut butter, almond extract and brown sugar. You can use any milk you use with your cereal, any nut butter you enjoy and vanilla extract in place of almond. I really enjoy almond extract with chocolate though! In place of brown sugar you can use real maple syrup or honey. This pudding is so versitile. The only rule is to use 2 tablespoons of chia seeds and 1/2 cup of milk. Stir with your choice of add-ons, cover and refrigerate overnight. I hope you will give it a try and if you do, let me know in the comments below! Enjoy, friends!
