- Chia Seeds: This makes up the bulk of the recipe. Either black or white chia seeds work well.
- Apple Sauce: This gives the chia pudding a delicious apple flavor.
- Non-dairy milk: Any non-dairy milk will work for this recipe. I personally used vanilla almond milk.
- Apple Pie Spice: For all that apple pie cookies! See the recipes notes on a DIY apple pie spice if you do not have any.
- Maple Syrup: To lighten sweeten the recipe.
How to make this recipe
If you’ve never made chia pudding before, have no fear because it couldn’t be any easier.
For this apple pie chia pudding, all you need to do is add all ingredients into a large bowl or container and stir it really well. Let it set in the fridge overnight or for at least 1 hour to thicken.
You can prep the apples ahead of time, or just before you’re about to eat. To do so, add the coconut oil to a pan and let it melt. Next, add in the cored and chopped apple, cinnamon and maple syrup. Let cook for about 5 minutes and serve with the chia pudding.
Recipes notes and tricks
- Once prepared, this chia pudding will last in the fridge for 5 days. Store it in an air tight container or jar for best results.
- If you do not have apple pie spice, combine 1 ½ tbsp cinnamon, 1 ½ tbsp nutmeg, and 1 tsp allspice. Mix well. Use a total of 1 – ½ tsp for this recipe.
- You can substitute the maple syrup for either honey or coconut sugar. I personally think the maple syrup adds a great Fall flavor though.
- This chia pudding thickens pretty quickly, so it does not need to sit overnight. It does make the morning easier to prep at night, but it will thicken in about 1 hour sitting in the fridge.
- I like to layer the chia pudding with more fresh apple sauce and the cinnamon apples, but it is also delicious as is or with some of my almond butter granola on top for a little crunch.
- To ensure the proper thickness of chia pudding, you also want to use a 1:4 ratio of chia seeds to liquid.
