    Chia Seeds are a Great Source of Healthy Fats

    This nut and seed chia pudding is loaded with healthy fats from chia seeds, flax seeds, and sunflower seeds! All great low carb foods that are high in good-for-you fats and fiber! One serving of this recipe has 6 grams of fiber. If you’re on a keto diet, this would make a great breakfast recipe for you.

    What’s the Difference Between Flax Seeds and Flax Meal?

    Flax seeds are the whole seed either in brown or golden color. Golden flax seeds tend to have a mellower flavor profile compared to brown, which is why this recipe calls for golden whole flax seeds!

    Flax meal is simply ground up flax seeds. You can buy these pre-ground or grind them up yourself in a food processor. For this recipe, we’re using the whole seed format.

    Ingredients Needed for Nut & Seed Chia Pudding

    Ingredients Needed for Nut & Seed Chia Pudding

    Chia Seeds: These seeds are extremely rich in nutrients like fiber, protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and antioxidants making this a fantastic healthy on-the-go breakfast option. 

    Flax Seeds: Whole golden flax seeds are nutty in flavor and also provide a ton of nutrients. There are brown and golden flaxseeds, I tend to opt for golden as they are milder in flavor compared to the brown. 

    Sunflower Seeds: Shelled sunflower seeds are another great source of vitamins and minerals. Basically this dish is full of foods that support your overall wellbeing!

    Maple Syrup: Just a tablespoon to sweeten things up a bit! You can swap for other natural sweeteners like agave or honey.

    Almond Milk: Plain, unsweetened almond milk is my milk of choice, however this recipe will also work with oat milk, cashew milk, or regular dairy milk.
