This thick and creamy chocolate chia seed pudding is made with chia seeds, nut milk, and its not-so-secret ingredient: chocolate collagen powder. Consider it your go-to for whenever those chocolate cravings kick in.

Chia seeds are a superfood rich in protein, antioxidants, and fiber; as well as potassium calcium, and iron. They are considered a complete protein, meaning that they contain all 9 essential amino acids that your body can’t make on its own.

Just one Tablespoon of these tiny seeds boasts 4 grams of fiber and 2 grams of protein—which means this recipe has approximately 16 grams of fiber and 8 grams of protein, not including the chocolate collagen powder!

Why You’ll Love this Recipe

  • It’s quick and easy. You’ll be in the kitchen 10 minutes, tops.
  • It’s a delicious alternative to conventional snacks like Jell-o, protein bars, or cereal.
  • It’s free of all the things—gluten, dairy, and sugar.

Here’s What You Need

  • Nut Milk: To transform the chia seeds from tough and dense to soft and chewy in minutes.
  • Chocolate Collagen Powder: To give this chia seed pudding its sweet, chocolatey flavor—while giving you your daily dose of collagen!
  • Chia Seeds: To hold the pudding together. Once chia seeds absorb a liquid, they become gelatinous and thicken the liquid that they’re submerged in.

Instruction

  1. Combine ingredients: Add oats, almonds, walnuts, pepitas, coconut, sunflower seeds, maple/honey, sesame seeds, coconut oil, vanilla, cinnamon and sea salt in a large mixing bowl. Toss to combine.
  2. Process dried fruit: Add dried fruit to a food processor with the chopping blade and process until the mixture is completely chopped and forms into a big, sticky ball.
  3. Add dried fruit: Pull the dried fruit from the processor and break into small pieces. Add it to the bowl with the oat mixture and use a plastic spatula or your hands to combine everything together.
  4. Form bites: Once combined, form bites into small cookie shaped pucks (or roll into balls). Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment.
  5. Enjoy: Enjoy right away or store in the fridge for later. Will last 1-2 weeks in the fridge or 3 months in the freezer.

Notes

Dried fruit – Feel free to use any assortment of dried fruit. I bet dried cranberries, apricots, fig and/or prunes would work great.
Nuts – You can experiment with other types of nuts like pecans, cashews or pistachios.
Seeds – Feel free to use whatever combination of seeds you have on hand. Nut-free – If you need a nut-free option you can easily swap the nuts for more seeds.
