Peanut Butter Chia Pudding

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.

Ingredients in Peanut Butter Chia Seed 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.

Description

Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 3 Tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon maple syrup or honey
  • 2 Tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • Toppings: extra peanut butter, cacao nibs and berries

Instructions

  1. 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 stirring until it’s dispersed. Let mixture sit for five minutes and whisk again to remove any clumps. Place in fridge to set for at least 30 minutes, but up to 12 hours.
  2. 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.

  1. Thanks for another good and healthy recipe. I followed the recipe and my pudding looked a little thin so I added another T of chia seeds and let it sit for 45 minutes. I may try adding cocoa powder next time 🙂
