It’s Vegan Week to kick off 2022 and I’m so excited for the recipes that I’ll be sharing with you guys all week! This recipe is an ultra-healthy breakfast, even though it tastes like dessert for breakfast! This recipe of 3-flavored chia pudding has everything you could want from something sweet in the morning – sweetness, crunch, and spice. However, it is made healthy by layering with homemade chia pudding, which is also vegan!

I personally love chia pudding and overnight oats because they offer something for everyone. Oats and seeds are ultra nutritious, so you are getting a healthy breakfast made from whole ingredients.

Chia seeds make for an amazing vegan pudding or overnight oats. They soften in whichever liquid you add and then become thick and even creamier. Sweeten with agave nectar and chia pudding is delicious on its own!

Chia Seed Health Benefits

Perhaps the best health benefit of chia seeds is how rich they are in omega-3 fatty acids. These are the healthy fats that our bodies need but do not produce on their own. Omega-3s help to reduce inflammation and may fight free radicals, reducing the risk of chronic disease.

In addition, chia seeds can be added to almost anything. Sprinkle them on your sandwich, add some to your morning smoothie, or scoop a tablespoon into your cereal. No matter how you eat them, chia seeds are extremely beneficial to your diet!

  • GRANOLA: If you're looking for a great store-bought granola, I love using Purely Elizabeth's line of granolas.
