Does it get any better than the chocolate peanut butter combination? I don’t think so! This Chocolate Peanut Butter Chia Pudding will easily become your new favorite breakfast or snack to make for the week. If you’re skeptical of chia seed pudding, I bet you’ll be shocked at how good this is.
You’ll love this new easy breakfast or snack to prep for the week! It’s great for meal prep, nutritious and comes together in less than 15 minutes! This chia pudding is also dairy free and can be made nut free if you want to switch the peanut butter to a Sunbutter or favorite seed butter.
What you need for Chocolate Peanut Butter Chia Pudding:
- Chia Seeds: This is a staple that I keep around and use in snacks, overnight oats and most importantly, chia pudding! You can buy a large bag and keep it for months to use in a variety of recipes.
- Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk: I’ve only used almond milk in this recipe and recommend using it for this one. If you’d like to use the sweetened version, you can substitute for that!
- Cacao Powder: this is another staple that I always keep in my pantry! A bag of this can be kept for a while and used in a variety of ways but adds that chocolatey flavor in this one.
- Peanut Butter: I like to use a creamy peanut butter here! My favorite jar of creamy peanut butter is at Trader Joe’s.
- Maple Syrup: this adds a touch of sweetness to your chia pudding! If you don’t want to add the maple in here, you can leave it out but it will be more bitter in taste.
- Cinnamon: with any chocolate PB combo, I always add cinnamon.
- Sea Salt: just a pinch!
How to store your chia pudding:
How do I prevent my chia pudding from clumping?

When you go to enjoy your chia pudding, you may need to stir it up more before enjoying or add a little more almond milk if needed.
Can I substitute the peanut butter?
Yes, you can substitute the peanut butter for any creamy nut butter or seed butter for allergy preferences.
