Apple Pie Chia and Oat Pudding with Coconut Cream

27 October 2015

Apple pie never gets old. And that is why I just had to incorporate it into one of my breakfast recipes.. the healthy way of course. Chia pudding is a great way to enjoy a dessert type dish without having to worry about being over-indulgent. Chia seeds are packed with omega 3 fatty acids, are rich in antioxidants and full of fiber, magnesium, zinc, iron and calcium. The delicious combination of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves also packs a poweful nutrition punch by fighting inflammation and detoxifying the body. This coupled with the goodness of MCT oils found in coconut milk and cream makes for a highly nutritious, satisfying and ultra good for you breakfast.


Prep Time 40 minutes |Serves 4

1 cup coconut milk

1/4 cup chia seeds

1 tsp. xylitol

2 apples - baked and blended

3 tbsp. maple syrup

½ tsp. cinnamon

1 cup rolled oats

1 tbsp. coconut oil

¼ tsp. nutmeg

¼ cup walnuts


Step 1:

Combine coconut milk with chia seeds and xylitol and refrigerate overnight or until chia seeds have expanded and milk has pudding-like consistency.

Place whole apples in oven and bake for 20 minutes until soft. Once cooked, remove from oven and allow to cool.

Step 3:

In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine oats with coconut oil.

Place oats on large baking tray and bake at 180⁰C for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Remove from heat.
