There are not many puddings that can be breakfast or dessert but this is one of them. Apple Pecan Chia Pudding is flavored with maple syrup & apple cider then topped with cinnamon apples & pecans for a sweet healthy treat.
Combine milk, cider, chia seeds, 2 tablespoons maple syrup, cinnamon and vanilla in a small bowl. Divide mixture evenly and pour into 2 serving dishes. Place in refrigerator for at least 1 hour. Stir halfway through so it doesn’t clump.
Combine pecans with remaining syrup and set aside.
Prepare apples by placing in small microwave-safe dish, sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar mixture then cook in microwave for 1-2 minutes.
Once chia pudding has started to gel, divide apples and place on top of pudding then finish with pecans.
Place back in refrigerator for overnight. Great for breakfast or even dessert.
Make your own cinnamon sugar mixture by combining ¼ cup granulated sugar with 3-4 teaspoons ground cinnamon.
