Peanut Butter Chocolate Chia Pudding is a healthy breakfast that taste like an indulgent dessert. Made ahead and packed with protein! Gluten and Dairy Free
Hello friends! This post has been updated from its original glory in 2014! I’m reposting today for some easy make-ahead breakfast inspiration!
Now, generally, I love nut butter in its pure natural form (no in concentrated powder form) Peanut butter (along with other types of nut and seed butter) are loaded with healthy fat that not only protects against heart disease but also helps to keep our waistline slim by helping keep us full. However, in this recipe, the chia seeds supply plenty of healthy fat, so the use of peanut butter powder adds flavor and protein.
So this recipe covers you on the fiber, healthy fat and protein side of things to help keep you full all morning. The chia seeds also supply rehydrating electrolytes, so it’s great to post AM workout for repletion.
Did I mention it taste like butterfingers yet? Dessert for breakfast is my favorite kind of breakfast. So it’s pretty much my favorite chia pudding recipe ever. Don’t take my word for it though, try it out and let me know what you think!
Let’s talk ingredients:
Chia seeds: I used black chia seeds, but any will work.
Almond milk: You can use any type of liquid that you want, nut milk or real milk will work. If you want it to be a bit sweeter you can use a sweetened version of nut milk but that will change the nutrition facts.
Peanut Butter Powder: I use organic PBFitbut other brands will work. Just keep in mind they may have fillers that will change the thickening power of this recipe.
Unsweetened Cocoa Powder: Optional, you could just make a peanut butter version if you want!
Peanuts: Honey roasted preferred!
Mini Chocolate Chips: optional, but not optional!
Stevia Drops: Totally optional, but if you switch it out for honey or maple syrup know that this could change the consistency of the pudding. If you go the stevia route I suggested vanilla creme stevia dropsvanilla creme stevia drops(they are amazeballs!)#PeanutButter #Chocolate #Chia #Pudding is a #healthy #breakfast that taste like an indulgent dessert.

Butterfinger Chia Pudding
Combine almond milk, peanut powder, cocoa powder, and stevia in a blender. Pour mixture into a shallow large bowl and stir/whisk in chia seeds. (You want to use a shallow bowl so that the chia seeds don't all stick together at the bottom) Cover with a lid or plastic wrap.
Let sit in the refrigerator for 6-8 hours until chia seeds have gelled creating the pudding. If you can stir 3-4 hours after refrigeration. After 6-8 hours, you can then transfer to a mini mason jar to make it more portable or just eat up!
Serve topped with honey roasted peanuts and chocolate chips.
