If you're obsessed with overnight oats, but getting a little tired of them, then you must try overnight chia pudding. It offers up more fiber, which means it just might fill you up even longer than your usual jar of oats. It also has a pudding-like consistency, so it might feel more decadent to dip your spoon into this bowl.
This basic recipe is flavored with maple syrup and warming gingerbread spices; plus, the toppings add extra sweetness and crunch. And because it follows the nutritionist-appproved formula for losing weight, this breakfast will not only satisfy your cravings for sweetly-spiced desserts, but you'll also be happy when you step on the scale.
If you find the consistency of your chia pudding is off, adjust the amount of milk you are using in the recipe.
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 3/4 cup unsweetened soy milk (or any milk you prefer)
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- Dash of ground clove
- Sprinkle of sea salt
- 1 tablespoon raisins
- 1 tablespoon chopped pecans (or other nut)
- Add all the ingredients for the pudding (save the toppings) to a mason jar and stir to combine.
- Refrigerate at least six hours or overnight. Try to give the mixture an additional stir while it's setting.
- Add toppings and enjoy!
