Peanut Butter Chia Pudding

DF GF V VG

This peanut butter chia pudding makes for a delicious breakfast, snack or healthy treat. Packed with peanut butter flavor and good-for-you ingredients!

I always knew I loved peanut butter, but I don’t think I fully processed just how deep my love goes for good ol’ PB. If I’m being honest, I would choose peanut butter over almond butter any day. If you’re the opposite, feel free to swap in almond butter in this recipe!

Chia pudding is the ultimate “diet-friendly” breakfast and/or mid-day snack. It’s gluten free, dairy free, grain free, refined sugar free, paleo friendly… it fits in almost any dietary preference or restriction and doesn’t skimp on flavor! I love how customizable chia pudding is. This is a great starter recipe, but if you want to get creative, feel free to experiment with my basic chia pudding recipe.

Why I Love Chia Pudding

  1. It’s ridiculously easy to make.
  2. It’s packed with nutrients! Chia seeds are a great source of healthy fats and fiber… read: they’ll keep you satisfied for hours! Read all chia benefits.
  3. There are countless flavor combinations. (Try this pumpkin chia mousse if you’re a pumpkin fan!)
  4. Chia pudding basically allows you to eat dessert any time of day. It’s thick and creamy like regular pudding but the nutrition facts make it acceptable to eat for breakfast, snacks or dessert.

Ingredients in Peanut Butter Chia Pudding

For this chia pudding we’re not just adding peanut butter as a topping, we’re stirring it into the chia pudding mixture so that each bite has a little peanut butter flavor.

  • Unsweetened almond milk – I prefer the mild, nutty flavor of almond milk, but you could swap in coconut milk or your favorite milk if you’d like!
  • Chia seeds  – the real MVP of this recipe. 😉
  • Maple syrup or honey – my go-to natural sweeteners.
  • Peanut butter – again, feel free to swap in a different nut or seed butter if you prefer a different flavor but peanut butter tastes delicious.
  • Vanilla
  • Toppings: extra peanut butter, cacao nibs, granola and berries – all optional of course, but highly recommended!

How to Make Peanut Butter Chia Pudding

If you’ve made chia pudding before, you can probably guess where this is going! Start by whisking the almond milk, chia seeds, maple syrup, peanut butter and vanilla together. Let the mixture sit for five minutes and then whisk again to break up any clumps that have formed.

Put it in the fridge to let it set for at least 30 minutes. I like to prep mine the night before and let it set overnight! When you’re ready to enjoy, give the chia pudding a stir and top with whatever you’re in the mood for. For this combo I like to top mine with a drizzle of peanut butter, cacao nibs and berries, but banana slices and granola would be delicious as well! Enjoy.

Ingredients

Instructions
 

  • Whisk together almond milk, chia seeds, maple syrup, peanut butter and vanilla. This takes a little effort because the peanut butter tends to stick together, but keep whisking until it’s dispersed. Let mixture sit for five minutes and whisk again to remove any chia clumps. Place in fridge to set for at least 30 minutes, but up to 12 hours.
  • When ready to enjoy, top with toppings of choice: I like a drizzle of peanut butter, cacao nibs and berries, but banana slices would be delicious as well.

      Delicious!! The peanut butter flavor is so good, and I love that it adds protein too. I ran out of yogurt and was looking for something to eat with my granola and berries. This was perfect! Thank you!

      This is my first time trying chia pudding. I read through a lot of recipes online. Swapped the honey/syrup for one packet of monk fruit sweetener, added a dash of salt and cinnamon. Topped with sliced bananas and ate for breakfast, was very happy! Delicious, would make a great dessert too.

      Love this pudding! Comes together so fast! I like to put the nut milk and peanut butter in the blender for fast blending!
