WOW. So delicious! I left out the maple syrup because I’m on the Whole 30 (but eating PB) and it still turned out amazing! Will definitely be making this again.
So happy you enjoyed the recipe!
My sister loves this parfait recipe! I made her a bunch right after she had her first baby so she could grab one whenever she needed a quick snack. I just recently started making them again but for some reason the chia pudding just isn’t becoming thick like pudding after I place it in the refrigerator. It’s watery and I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong.
I would love to hear your suggestions on why that could be…
Thank you so much Danni! Happy you enjoyed!
I’m still having problems with the pudding. Do you think I should add more of something?
Hi Danni, if you use the ratio of about 1/4 cup of chia seeds to 1 cup of liquid and mix them together, it should turn into a pudding. double check to make sure your measurements are correct. I in fact find that i often need 1 1/4 cup of liquid even for 1/4 cup of chia seeds.
First of all who says no that recipe!! I love your combine and whenever i visit your blog i can’t return and spending my whole time here :)) i have a question. Agave, maple syrups are so expencive here in Turkey.. What can i prefer to use healthy sweetener instead of these syrups for your all recipes?? Is honey work with same measurement ?
Hi Melike, thank you so much! You can use honey or any other type of “sticky” sweetener. If you prefer using sugar to sweeten you can also use that too!
Love love love! Thanks for putting together a quick and easy breakfast recipe. The contrast of the mayors is simply breathtaking ??
Thanks so much, Stephanie! I love having quick easy breakfasts in my kitchen too 🙂
Peanut butter and jelly never fails to dazzle me. Your chia parfait looks beautiful and SO delicious and sweet. I love how the layers just stack so perfectly! Whenever I try to make layered-treats like this, they always end up mixing together and making a big messy and ugly-looking mixture of foods! LOL! At least taste isn’t sacrificed!
Hi Cassie, thank you! Peanut butter and Jelly is the best, isn’t it? When making layers I like to gently spoon them into a cup. I also make sure that the bottom layer is thicker than the top layers so it doesn’t mix all together!
This is my kind of breakfast 😀 Love those layers. Looks so yummy!!
Thanks Nadia! Peanut butter and jelly is one of my favourite combinations!
These parfaits look AMAZING! The layer that’s catching my eye is the chia jam… so fruity and delicious! 🙂
Thanks Sarah! It’s one of my favourite combinations especially with the chia!
Holy YUM! Im convinced that pb and j is my spiritual animal, so this chia parfait is right up my alley!
Isn’t pb&j just the best? I hope you enjoy the recipe!
