A breakfast that tastes like my favorite candy bar – what’s not to love? This Chocolate Peanut Butter Chia Pudding is a healthy breakfast option that’s sweet, indulgent and loaded with plant protein and fiber. I have been hooked on this easy-to-prep breakfast. I’m sure you will be, too!

Layers of chocolate chia pudding and peanut butter chia pudding are topped with homemade granola, sliced bananas, and peanut butter. It is so delicious!

This recipe is made with just a few simple ingredients that are vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free and refined sugar-free.

What’s Chia Pudding?

Chia pudding is made by mixing chia seeds with milk and letting it soak for several hours (or overnight). When soaking, the chia seeds soften, gel and expand to create a pudding consistency.

Chia seeds are low in calories, loaded with antioxidants, and high in fiber and protein. A fun tidbit – chia seeds actually expand when they reach your stomach, which means they keep you fuller for longer. Low in calories and filling makes chia pudding the ideal breakfast or snack.

Ingredients To Make Chocolate Peanut Butter Chia Pudding

  • Chia Seeds – I get mine from Amazon or Costco. Most grocery stores carry chia seeds. 
  • Non-Dairy Milk – any non-dairy milk will work. I like to use soy milk. The milk gels with the chia seeds to create a pudding consistency. 
  • Maple Syrup – to sweeten things up. Any liquid sweetener should work.
  • Vanilla Extract – to add some vanilla flavor.
  • Cocoa Powder – for the chocolate layer.
  • Peanut Butter – for the peanut butter layer. Sometimes I like to use peanut butter powder for a lower calorie option.

How To Make It

Mix all of the ingredients together for the chocolate and peanut butter layers in separate bowls. Leave them in the refrigerator for at least four hours, or overnight. I usually make my chia pudding at the start of the week and keep it in the fridge, or make it the night before and let it gel overnight. Then, layer everything together and enjoy!
