Apple Pie Chia Seed Pudding

Print

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!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

What’s not to love about this recipe? Chia seed puddings are nutritional powerhouses because chia seeds provide a good source of iron, protein, fiber and omega-3 fatty acids. The protein powder and powdered peanut butter add an extra protein boost to keep you feeling fuller longer, without the extra calories. The apple on top gives the right amount of sweetness with a good dose of fiber, perfect for those trying to up their fiber intake. In addition, this recipe is low in sodium and cholesterol, while high in potassium, a great mixture for the heart health conscious.
