PB&J Chia Seed Pudding

There are certain flavors that bring you back to your childhood. To me- that’s peanut butter and jelly. I used to (still do) LOVE a good classic peanut butter and jelly. Well, as good as they are they really aren’t the best for you. So- I decided to take that classic flavor and make something healthy but still delicious! Every bite will bring you back to the good old days.

2 tablespoons chia seed pudding

1 cup milk (any kind you want)

2 tablespoons peanut butter

2 teaspoons maple syrup

Strawberry compote:

1 cup fresh strawberries

1 tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon water

Sliced Strawberries (optional)

Roasted Unsalted Peanuts (optional)


In a bowl add the chia seeds, milk, peanut butter, and maple syrup. Stir to combine so no large chunks of peanut butter remain

Cover with plastic wrap and put into the fridge to sit for 4 hours or overnight

In a small saucepan over medium high heat add in the chopped strawberries, sugar, and water

Let the mixture come to a simmer and cook for 2-3 minutes

Take off the heat and let it cool completely before putting into the fridge to let chill

I personally like to layer the pudding and strawberry compote (mostly for visual affect) but you can always do the pudding on the bottom with the compote on top

I sprinkle the top with unsalted roasted peanuts and some sliced strawberries but this is optional as well! How easy is this healthy treat?
