Gingerbread Chia Seed Pudding

Gingerbread Chia Seed PuddingWe love this gingerbread chia seed pudding.

And we love chia seeds…

…especially when they’re made into pudding (you can eat this as a snack, breakfast or dessert).

Why chia seeds?

Because they’re LOADED with healthful fiber- soluble fiber (a special type of fiber that’s extra good for digestion and good for your heart).

Why this recipe?

Chia seed pudding has been all the rage for a while, so for this season, we decided to put a holiday spin on it… and gingerbread is definitely one of my favorite holiday flavors; I love all of the spices and the perfect balance of spicy and sweet.

Chia seeds are also a source of the plant-based form of omega-3 fatty acids as well as fiber and a variety of important minerals (calcium magnesum etc). So with chia seed pudding, you’re getting a delicious treat while also giving your body a ton of great nutrition- as well as some calcium, magnesium and other minerals too (hello bone health).

Did you know that molasses is what gives gingerbread its unique flavor? This means that it is a crucial ingredient in all gingerbread recipes and should not be substituted for any other sweetener. Molasses is also a great source of antioxidants as well.

If you want to tweak this recipe we suggest making it with chocolate and peppermint instead.

Enjoy this recipe!
