Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Chia Pudding

 

My two favorite flavors are coming together as one in this delicious mouth watering chia pudding recipe. Vegan, gluten-free and paleo friendly!

 


 

Just like overnight oats, chia pudding was an acquired taste for me but once after a few tries, I was hooked. Now I just can’t stop eating it! Not to mention that chia seeds are a superfood so the health benefits are well, pretty freaking super!

Chia seeds are naturally high in fiber, protein, omega-3, omega-6, calcium, copper, potassium and zinc!

 

 

This pudding recipe is so simple to make and takes just a couple of minutes to prep!

Here’s a delicious and healthy recipe that’s unbelievably satisfying and made using the most amazing chocolate hazelnut spread I have ever had in my life.  Nuts ‘N More just released this Healthy Chocolate Hazelnut Spread and I think I’m in love–I might even change my blog name to Hazelnut Plus Chocolate.
