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

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.

This 4-Ingredient Easy Blueberry Jam is thickened with chia seeds, lightly sweetened, and seriously delicious! It’s kid-approved and Paleo friendly.

Blueberry jam with chia seeds in a jarEasy Blueberry Jam Recipe

This month we’re celebrating Summer fun, and what better than to celebrate with a healthy kid-friendly chia seed jam that can be topped or spread on everything! Ice cream, crepes, oatmeal, muffins, yogurt, pancakes, waffles, toast, or even have a spoonful plain! Blueberries are a superfood that I simply cannot get enough of. When they are back in season I stock up weekly and when they’re just about to go out of season, I freeze a bunch for smoothies and muffins!

Say goodbye to store-bought jam loaded with preservatives and sugars. This jam is free of refined sugars and such a fabulous healthy alternative to traditional jam. You are going to be amazed at just how quickly it comes together and how thick it gets! I give the credit to the chia seeds, a super healthy seed used as the thickener!

Ingredients Needed For Blueberry Chia Jam:

  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons  honey
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds

Are Chia Seeds 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!

Can you make jam without pectin?

Absolutely! The chia seeds thicken this jam wonderfully by absorbing a lot of the liquid of the strawberries without having to cook the mixture for hours. As the directions state, we recommend cooking it a bit to get the correct desired consistency, and then after cooking the chia seeds will continue to absorb liquid to thicken up the jam.
