Chia seeds have been in heavy rotation in our house lately, and chia seed pudding is one of the ways we enjoy them. I had a taste for something sweet crunchy and chewy. Caramel apples fit the bill. So I decided to make a healthier version of my favorite fall classic.
This recipe is so easy and so delicious that you must make it! I really wasn’t sure how it would turn out. However, when I got a spoon full of the ooey chia seeds, and a nice crunch from the apples, along with the sweetness of the caramel sauce my taste buds were singing!
I made this recipe dairy free because as I mentioned before, most dairy upsets my stomach. And I wanted a sweet treat that wasn’t hard on my stomach or my waistline.
Chia Seed Pudding
3 Tablespoons of Chia Seeds

1/2 Cup of Almond Butter
3-4 Tablespoons of real Maple Syrup

Assemble the chia seed pudding as you please and that’s it!
You weren’t expecting this recipe to be this easy. I hope you enjoy this recipe.
