Chia Seed Pudding for Breakfast:

Yes, friend, I have a new go-to breakfast recipe to share with you. It’s this apple pie chia seed pudding! You might remember that this past summer I shared my previous go-to breakfast recipe. (You can find that HERE.) Well, I decided to switch things up for a new season. 

I’ve tried chia puddings in the past and wasn’t all that impressed. I don’t think I had a recipe that I loved. I was hesitant to try them again, but I was seeing them all over social media, so I had to give it a shot.

I took inspiration from the season and included things like apples, raisins, maple syrup, and seasonal spices to create a chia seed pudding that I absolutely love. In fact, I enjoy it so much that I had to share it with you!

Why I’m loving this recipe: 

As I mentioned above, this has become my new go-to breakfast recipe for fall. As soon as I wake up, I start thinking about it and I can’t wait to dive in. I love this recipe because …

  1. I can prep it the night before. Therefore, it requires zero effort in the morning to have a delicious breakfast
  2. It’s delicious. I’m a big fan of overnight oats and muesli. This is very similar. I also love the seasonal addition of apples, maple, and spices. 
  3. It’s perfectly portioned out and requires no thought. I often struggle with decision fatigue. Having this ready to go requires zero thought in the morning. 
  4. It’s filling. Chia seeds keep you full, so I’m not craving a snack at 10 a.m. 

It’s also worth mentioning that this isn’t a breakfast-only recipe. Feel free to eat it any time of the day when you want a delicious and filling meal.

Ingredients: 

Let’s walk through the ingredients you’ll need to make this apple pie chia seed pudding.

ingredients for Apple Pie Chia Seed Pudding on cutting board.
  • chia seeds – I recently found out that there are black and white chia seeds. I prefer black seeds. 
  • oat milk (or any milk) – You can use whatever milk or milk alternative you like best. I prefer oat milk. 
  • apples – Honeycrisp is my go-to here. You want to dice them up fairly small. 
  • raisins – If you don’t like raisins, feel free to leave them out. However, I love how they pulp up as they sit in the pudding. They are delicious in this recipe.  You can also use golden raisins, dried cherries, dried cranberries, etc.
  • walnuts – Again, I think walnuts work really well here but feel free to switch it up and use whatever nut you like. 
  • pure maple syrup – Pure maple syrup is best here. My favorite is from Finding Home Farms
  • apple pie spice – Like pumpkin pie spice, apple pie spice is a blend of spices that work well in apple pie. If you don’t have this, cinnamon or even pumpkin pie spice will work great.

While it is mentioned in the recipe card below, I wanted you to know that you can also make this chia pudding as one large batch and just portion out a serving when you’re ready to eat. I personally like the jars because I have little self-control and they stop me at one serving.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Here are a few questions you may have about chia pudding and this recipe. 

Is chia seed pudding good for you?

Chia seed pudding is a super-tasty and extremely easy way to sneak healthy fats into your diet. Chia seeds are filled with omega-3 fatty acids — the good fats that promote heart and joint health and aid memory.

Can you lose weight by eating chia seeds?

The soluble fiber in chia seeds can help with weight loss by keeping you feeling full. However, eating them won’t directly lead to weight loss. 

How long should chia seeds soak for pudding?

I’d say a minimum of 30 minutes of soaking and then you should be good to go. However, I like to give mine a few hours or overnight. 

Can I use a different ingredient?

Yes, of course. Make this recipe your own. In the ingredient list above I’ve shared possible substitutions for some of the items used in this recipe. 

How long will this last in the refrigerator?

Generally speaking, it will last for three to four days in the refrigerator. However, I like to enjoy mine in two.
