Easy Chia Pudding Breakfast Recipe

I topped my chia pudding with fresh berries and crunchy granola and it was the perfect breakfast.


For my granola I used Bakery on Main’s Decadent Cookie Monster Granola – it is so tasty and the sprinkles added to it make this even more like chocolate cake!


The granola is vegan and gluten-free, packed with beneficial nutrients and 16g of whole grains per serving. 


It combines the flavors of dark chocolate with premium nuts and sprinkles – it’s also delicious over ice cream or yogurt!

Pudding topped with raspberries.


  • Bakery on Main Decadent Cookie Monster Granola – For added crunch and flavor.
  • Chia Seeds – Whole chia seeds create the pudding texture.
  • Oat Milk – Any dairy-free milk is great, oat is my favorite.
  • Cocoa Powder – Any will do, you can also use cacao powder.
  • Maple Syrup – To sweeten, you can also use agave.
  • Peanut Butter – This adds creaminess, flavor and protein!
  • Vanilla Extract – To add more depth of flavor.
  • Salt – Just a pinch to bring out all the flavors.
  • Fresh Raspberries – Any berries are delicious on top!

How to Make Chia Pudding

Mixing the Pudding Ingredients

To make this easy vegan chia pudding recipe, you only need a handful of ingredients and a couple minutes!


To begin, if your peanut butter is on the harder side, heat it in the microwave for a few seconds until it’s creamier and easier to mix.


Then, add it to a bowl along with the remaining ingredients and mix well until smooth and creamy.


Place in the fridge to set for at least 3 hours, or overnight.

Serving Chia Pudding

Once set, serve this chia pudding with your favorite toppings!


I used fresh raspberries and granola, but some other tasty options could be chocolate chips, nuts, whipped cream, bananas and more!

Dairy Free Cocoa Peanut Butter Pudding

This tasty homemade cocoa pudding recipe is a regular in my house – it’s perfect for busy mornings and is also super budget-friendly.


It also tastes like dessert and yet is packed with nutrients and totally customizable.


Another option for making this vegan pudding is to blend all of the ingredients together instead of mixing them – this makes for an even creamier and smoother consistency much like pudding.

  1. Chocolate cake for breakfast? And it’s healthy, too?!? YESSSS … sign me up! This would be fantastic for dessert, too, since it’s just sweet enough, and definitely chocolate-y enough, to satisfy a late-night sweet tooth!

  2. I like this dairy free chocolate pudding! I’m such a chocolate lover and this satisfies my sweet cravings any time of the day!

  3. I’m going to try this! I’ve been looking for Chia recipes because I just don’t love putting it in a smoothie but I’m trying to get more in my diet. Thanks for the recipe!

  4. This chia pudding is fantastic and so easy to make. I am continually replacing unhealthy store bought products with homemade recipes, and trying to go vegan as much as I can so this was a really easy snack to start with. I used oat milk but think I’ll try with almond milk next time.
