If you don’t know what chia seed pudding is, you are definitely going to read this! Chia seed pudding is simply chia seeds that are thickened with a milk of choice until they’ve reached a pudding like consistency. It’s an easy and healthy breakfast option that is simple to make. I love chia seeds because of their nutritional value, and I really enjoy the texture. So it’s a no brainer to use them to make Apple Chia Seed Pudding. And now that Fall is in the air (and the farm is stocking up with my favorite Fall produce), I wanted to mix in something warm, like warm apple pie filling infused with just the right amount of cinnamon. You with me on this one? Packed with nutrients, delicious, and filling.

Apple Chia Seed Pudding Ingredients

  • Chia seeds
  • Almond milk
  • Apples
  • Honey or Maple Syrup
  • Cinnamon
  • Raisins

Are chia seeds paleo and healthy?

Yes! Chia seeds are a Paleo-friendly and nutrient-dense. They’re easy to digest and can even aid in digestion by helping this move along! They are also contain omega-3’s which means they’re not only good for your body but also good for your brain!

Benefits of Chia Seeds:

  • Loaded with iron, calcium, omega 3′s, magnesium, and antioxidants
  • Mineral powerhouse
  • Natural detoxifier
  • Improves health of hair, skin, and nails
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds (above serving) contains 11g fiber and 4g protein

How long will this apple chia pudding last?

Chia pudding will last for a few days in the refrigerator, up to about 5. It’s preferable to store the apple filling separate from the chia seed pudding, but it will still hold up alright if you’d like to completely make this ahead of time.

The recipe can easily be halved, double or tripled for an easy grab and go breakfast or healthy snack.

  1. Delicious! I usually add sweetener to the chia pudding mix, but once the apple topping is all mixed in it all balances out perfectly!

  2. I know this post is 5 years old, but I just found it via pinterst. I had to comment to tell you how wonderful it was! I made this and another recipe from another site (peanut butter and blueberry flavor) and this blew that one away! It was so tasty. I upped the cinnamon just a smidge because i love cinnamon, and didnt bother reheating my left over apple compote – just threw it on top – and it was still fabulous! One of my go to breakfasts is oatmeal with apples added, so this was a perfect replacement!

  3. I pretty sure there are just a few recipes left to try until I run out! Once again, you are amazing. This tasted amazing.
