Back again with more pumpkin peanut butter flavor - this time with a quick overnight recipe! Chia pudding is so great for a snack or part of any meal - such as on toast like I did here, and just takes a few minutes to throw together. You can adapt the strength of the peanut butter flavor to your liking by taste-testing once the pudding is ready in the morning and adding more peanut butter powder if you wish! I used Crazy Richard’s powdered peanut butter, made with just peanuts, for this recipe.
I put this chia pudding on toast with banana and an extra sprinkle of pumpkin spice for a delicious breakfast toast! This new fun toast-themed plate was a surprise gift from my mom, and so of course I had to use it for toasts! I always love pairing one sweet and one savory toast flavor for breakfast for the best of both worlds. I did one piece of avocado toast with radish, tempeh, a mix of chopped veggies from Trader Joe’s (called the “Holiday Vegetable Hash”) for the savory toast.
If you don't have pumpkin spice, you can easily substitute with a good shake of cinnamon, and a dash of, nutmeg, allspice, ginger, nutmeg, and/or clove - depending on which of these spices you have on hand. If you want the pudding thicker, add more peanut powder in the morning; if you want it thinner, add more milk. You can also add a few tbsp of honey or maple syrup if you want to sweeten it more.
Pumpkin Peanut Butter Chia Pudding
3 tbsp chia seeds
1/2 cup oat milk
½ - 3/4 cup pumpkin purée
3-4 tbsp peanut butter powder, to taste
Splash of vanilla extract (optional)
½ tsp pumpkin spice (or substitute spices mentioned above)
1. Mix ingredients well in a jar, starting with the chia seeds and milk. Make sure the chia seeds are evenly mixed in and not clumping at the bottom.
2. Cover and refrigerate overnight and in the morning, the chia seeds will have thickened and you’ll have pudding! Enjoy alone or with fruit and/or toast!
