This chia pudding recipe is perfect for a quick, on-the-go breakfast or anytime snack. I would even eat this chia seed pudding for dessert! I recently bought apple pie spice from the grocery store, and ever since I have been trying to incorporate it into everything I make. It was a no brainer to put together this apple pie chia pudding. I’m always looking for ways to add protein to my diet, so this recipe calls for protein powder, but I’m sure it will taste just as great without it!

Apple Pie Chia Seed Pudding
½ banana (mashed)
½ apple (honeycrisp, chopped)
4 teaspoons chia seeds
¼ cup water
1 tablespoon powdered peanut butter
1 tablespoon cinnamon protein powder (use 100% whey)
¼ teaspoon apple pie spice
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
⅛ teaspoon cinnamon
- Mash the banana in a bowl or container.
- Add all ingredients and mix well.
- Place lid over the bowl or container and leave in the fridge overnight to set, or for at least 2 hours.

Serve with a sprinkle of cinnamon or chopped walnuts for extra flavor. For a more filling snack/breakfast, use almond butter instead of powdered peanut butter.
