How to make cinnamon apple pie chia pudding
Mix the chia pudding ingredients together in a bowl and place in the fridge to set for at least one hour, or overnight. Give it good whisks for 2 minutes to make sure everything is well incorporated. After an hour you’ll have a thick and creamy mixture like this!
Sautee the apples in a pan with some coconut oil, maple syrup and cinnamon. You can cut the apples into small cubes, or leave them in larger slices if you prefer. You want to let them cook for a good 5-8 minutes until they’re soft and caramelized.
Use a spoon and layer the chia pudding into the bottom of the jars, then add the apple layer on top. If you prefer you can also make this recipe in a glass or even just in a bowl.
Enjoy these chia puddings right away, or store them in the fridge for up to a week covered. You can also store the chia pudding and apple compote separately to enjoy when you like.
Chia pudding ratio
The general ratio for chia pudding is 1 part chia seeds to 4 parts liquid. (So about 1/4 cup of chia seeds to 1 cup of liquid.)
Sometimes, depending on the liquid you use and the brand of chia seeds you have, you may need a touch more or less liquid. (This will also depend on your personal preference on how thick you like your chia pudding.)
If you use all coconut milk to make chia pudding, you may need a bit more since it is a thicker liquid.
Tips for making this recipe perfectly
- Use a mix of coconut milk and almond milk in this recipe. The coconut milk will add a rich and creamy texture to the chia pudding, and the almond milk will keep this chia pudding on the lighter side.
- You can use either homemade apple sauce or store-bought applesauce in this recipe. If using store-bought, go for unsweetened applesauce.
- Preheat the coconut oil in the pan before adding the apples so they can sautee in the oil for a minute or two. This will give them some great flavour!
- Give the apples a good 5-8 minutes to cook on medium heat so they can caramelize in the maple syrup. The apples should be pretty soft and easy to poke with a fork when they’re done.

Hi! Thanks for sharing! Did you use ground or whole Chia seeds for this recipe?
Hey chris, whole chia seeds are best!
Happy you enjoyed!
Beautiful, easy to put together, very tasty. Thank you for this recipe ❤️
You’re welcome Carol! 🙂
This was my 1st time making chia seed pudding and holy cow this is delicious!! Way exceeded my expectations… its creamy, lightly sweetened and the bit of crunch from the apples takes it over the top. Will definitely be making this again! Thank you for the recipe!! 💓
So glad you enjoyed your first chia pudding experience! 🙂
Can’t wait to make this! Quick question, for the coconut milk, is it canned coconut milk or the carton coconut milk (like the SO delicious brand)? Also wondering if anything would need to be altered if you used oat milk? Thanks!
Hi Kesha! Canned coconut milk works best for a rich and creamy texture, but you can also use carton coconut milk or any type of plant-based milk you like will work!
Made this for breakfast today and it’s SO good! I added a little cinnamon to the chia mixture for more flavor and also put some toasted walnuts on top just because. I love the mixture of flavors and textures, will definitely make again!
Thanks for the review Claire! I’m so happy to hear you enjoyed the recipe 🙂
Just made it tonight. Craving for healthy snack that’s easy to do. Very enjoyable.
Though just used almond milk instead of the mix and didn’t add more sweet in it, apple sauce was very tasty so it mixed so well with chiaseed+almond milk. Thanks for the idea :p
Thank you! So happy you loved it!
Absolutely loved this recipe! Will make again.
Thanks Marisa! Happy you enjoyed!
Fantastic! And absolutely love the consistency of the chia pudding! Will definitely make again (and try other recipes of yours).
Thank you for the review Lina, glad you enjoyed 🙂
I can’t wait to try this recipe! About how many cups of the chia pudding would be equivalent to one serving?
Hi Sofia, serving sizes are listed in the recipe card 🙂
Amazing recipe! One of my favorite desert ❤️
Thanks so much Laura! So happy you like the recipe 🙂
I’ve been paying $3 AUD per day for premade chia puddings from the supermarket. I just made 8 of these for $8.50 AUD. And they were so easy and taste delicious. Thankyou x
Hi Amber, that’s amazing!! Definitely much cheaper to make them at home 🙂
Great recipe! . Thanks .My first time making chia pudding. It was delicious and so easy. I substituted pecans for walnuts.
Thank you for the review MarieAnn! Glad you enjoyed the recipe!
Hi Rhonda! I don’t have the exact nutritional value for these but you can enter the ingredients in a calorie counter which will tell you. What I can tell you is these are very healthy and low in fat 🙂
Hello, I was wondering what is the best almond milk to use in this recipe!!Cant wait to make this, sounds amazing!!
Hi Izzie, you can use either store bought or homemade almond milk! I prefer homemade almond milk (I use this recipe from the blog: https://choosingchia.com/how-to-make-almond-milk-at-home/) but when I don’t have time to make it I use store bought! My favourite brand is called Earth’s own Almond milk at the grocery store!
This recipe is really delicious. I’ve made this almost everyday for a week now. I let the chia pudding sit overnight before serving. Thank you so much for sharing.
Hi Will! I’m so happy you like the recipe! It’s one of my favourite chia puddings too!
This looks like a little cup of fall flavors!!! Love it! I may be boring, but apples really are one of my favorite fruits. Apple chia pudding sounds amazing!
Hi Maria, thank you! Apples are such a great fruit especially since they are readily available all year long! I hope you love this chia pudding as much as I do!
