PEANUT BUTTER CUP CHIA SEED PUDDING

What was your favorite candy as a kid? Hands down, mine were Reese’s peanut butter cups and a classic Snickers bar. Do you notice a theme here? Chocolate + peanut butter. There really is no better combination of flavors.
Now I’m an adult and have completely gotten rid of any candy cravings. LOL JK. Of course I still love to indulge in anything with chocolate and peanut butter, from Justin’s peanut butter cups to PB cup-inspired oatmeal to literally a spoonful of peanut butter with a square of chocolate. Now I’ve found another way to enjoy this beloved combo – peanut butter cup chia seed pudding!!
I’ll admit that I’m a creature of habit. If I find something I like, I end up enjoying that same thing over and over again. This is especially true when it comes to breakfast. You know by now how much I love oats in all forms, so it shouldn’t be a huge surprise that most mornings start off with a big bowl of oatmeal.
I keep it interesting by switching up my toppings – one day might be blueberries, coconut and chia, and another might be almond butter, cocoa powder and banana. But there are times when I want something a little different. Enter: chia pudding!!!



INGREDIENTS
  • ½ cup chia seeds, divided
  • 2 cups almond milk*
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 2-3 tablespoons maple syrup or agave nectar (or replace with liquid stevia)
  • 1½ teaspoons vanilla extract, divided
  • ¼ + ⅛ teaspoon salt, divided
  • 2 tablespoons natural peanut butter
  • ⅛ teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. In a medium bowl, add 5½ tablespoons chia seeds, 1⅓ cups milk, cocoa powder, 1-2 tablespoons maple syrup, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and ¼ teaspoon salt. Whisk until all ingredients are combined.
  2. In a small bowl, add 2½ tablespoons chia seeds, ⅔ cup milk, peanut butter, 1 tablespoon maple syrup, ½ teaspoon vanilla, ⅛ teaspoon salt, and cinnamon. Whisk until all ingredients are combined.
  3. Place both bowls in the fridge. Let them sit overnight, or at least 3 hours.
  4. To arrange, scoop desired amount of chocolate chia seed pudding into a cup or bowl, top with a scoop of peanut butter chia seed pudding, then another chocolate layer. Top with whatever you’d like!
