Overnight Chocolate Peanut Butter Chia Seed Pudding (Easy Recipe)

I rarely have time for a full-blown breakfast in the morning so my go-to recipes are usually the no-cook variety. Aside from my staple overnight oats, chia seed pudding is my next favorite because it’s a complete meal in one with protein, low-GI carbs, and healthy fats. Not many people are aware that chia seeds contain omega-3 fatty acids, which promote heart health. Also, it contains a good amount of dietary fiber, so it’s actually pretty filling even in small amounts. When chia seeds are left overnight, they take on a pudding consistency that instantly reminds me of dessert, so I go the extra mile with chocolate and peanut butter, naturally. This is an excellent example of how healthy eating can taste sinfully delicious any tie of the day.
