  • ½ cup unsweetened almond milk or other nondairy milk
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup diced apple, divided
  • 1 tablespoon chopped toasted pecans, divided


Switch up your morning oatmeal routine with this so-easy chia pudding recipe. It's made just like overnight oats: combine chia and your milk of choice, let soak overnight, then top with the classic flavor combo of apples and cinnamon, with pecans for added crunch.


  1. Stir almond milk (or other nondairy milk), chia, maple syrup, vanilla and cinnamon together in a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate for at least 8 hours and up to 3 days.
  2. When ready to serve, stir well. Spoon about half the pudding into a serving glass (or bowl) and top with half the apple and pecans. Add the rest of the pudding and top with the remaining apple and pecans.


  • Refrigerate pudding (Step 1) for up to 3 days. Finish with Step 2 just before serving.
