Have you ever tried chia pudding? It’s a great grain-free alternative to oatmeal, and a healthy way to indulge in pudding for dessert. With some mashed pumpkin and a few spices, this Healthy Pumpkin Chia Pudding tastes just like a slice of pie!

When chia seeds are left to sit in liquid, they form a gel consistency that is just like pudding. They’re full of fiber and omega-3 fatty acids, so you can feel good giving your kids some ch-ch-ch-chia!

This pumpkin chia pudding is great for breakfast, a healthy sweet snack, or even an after-dinner dessert. For an even smoother consistency, you can blend all the ingredients after soaking to create a silky pudding. I love topping mine with crunchy pecans for texture and a drizzle of molasses for true pumpkin pie flavor. Grab a spoon and dig in!

  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 20 mins
  • Yield: 10-12 4" pancakes
  • Category: Breakfast

Ingredients

  • 1 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed (flax meal)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (or sugar or honey)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 cup milk (or non-dairy substitute)
  • 3/4 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)

Instructions

  1. Grease a griddle, and preheat over medium heat. (Or you can use a pan on your stovetop.)
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, sift together the flour, flax meal, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the maple syrup, vanilla, applesauce, and milk. Slowly pour the liquid into the dry ingredients, stirring continuously. Mix until you get the lumps out of the batter. Gently fold in the blueberries.
  4. On your griddle, begin to cook the pancakes, using about 1/4 cup of the batter for each one.
  5. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, until they start to bubble around the edges and flip. Cook for another 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the griddle, and serve. Top with blueberries and maple syrup.

Notes

Not all gluten-free all purpose flours are the same. You may need to add an extra tablespoon or two of flour to get the right texture.
