Peanut Butter and Jelly Chia Pudding

This Peanut Butter and Jelly Chia Pudding is a deliciously creamy and easy breakfast that can be made overnight!

For the first month or so of Summer, I was seriously stuck in a breakfast funk. Where as I used to look forward to eating breakfast the minute my head hit the pillow at night, I suddenly wasn’t as excited. For context, my husband and I usually eat eggs every single morning – sometimes a piece of toast on the side and maybe some avocado if we have it. I absolutely love this breakfast! However, I found that my body was craving something more cool and refreshing.

Admittedly, I’m not much of a smoothie person. So I thought, well, I could think of another overnight oats recipe…but then I thought: CHIA PUDDING! I hadn’t made chia pudding in what felt like years! And since I’ve been obsessed with making my 3 Ingredient Homemade Jam this Summer…why not make a PB and J version?! When you layer in the hearty peanut butter along with the combo of the deliciously sweet jam – you’re set for a scrumptious and extra easy breakfast! Did I mention that it’s only 5 pantry ingredients?! YES!!

What Even is Chia Pudding? 

Chia pudding is made up of chia seeds and your choice of milk. When it’s all said and done, the base of it looks a little something like this:

For my recipe, I used unsweetened vanilla cashew milk for extra creaminess! Basically, you mix the chia seeds and milk together and let it sit for a few hours (or overnight)! Somehow the milk and chia seeds soak together to make this delicious creamy texture of a nutritional bomb!  I love chia pudding because you can prepare it and let it sit overnight. It’s super easy and plus it’s really good for you! Let’s get into how to make it!

How to Make Peanut Butter and Jelly Chia Pudding: 

Okay so, this may or may not be the shortest explanation of how to make a recipe on my blog in the history of Our Balanced Bowl! Ha! So let’s get started! 

In a medium size bowl, whisk together peanut butter, maple syrup and milk until fully combined. Add in the chia seeds and gently mix together until combined.

Once everything is mixed together, put a lid on the bowl and either let sit overnight. If you’re in a time crunch, you can let it sit for about an hour in the fridge and it should have the consistency you are looking for. You are looking for a pudding consistency. 

Now, here’s where you can get fancy if you desire! Once done, in a mason jar, add the peanut butter to the bottom followed by a layer of chia pudding followed by a layer of jelly. Top the jelly with chia pudding and a large drizzle of the peanut pro!

However, there is absolutely no judgement if you literally just plop the chia pudding into a bowl along with a big glob of peanut butter and jelly, mix it all together and eat it while you’re headed out the door. No shame there! Either way, this is the perfect Summer breakfast! 

I surely hope you enjoy it! Xo

  1. PB & jelly is always a classic and love that you incorporated into one of my faves – chia pudding! Looks so creamy dreamy and straight up delish! Now I have that ‘peanut butter jelly time’ song stuck in my head, so thanks for that, lol. Love that this one is only 5 ingredients too…can’t beat that! Have a wonderful weekend, Haylie! XO

    1. Yes!! I love it! And LOL! Cracking up that I got the Peanut butter jelly time song in your head….my bad! 😉 If it helps, it’s now in my head too…


  2. I adore peanut butter and jam together, and they sound delicious in this chia pudding. I make a version of this but I double up on the chia and use chia jam too! Now I’m thinking I need to prep this for breakfast tomorrow! Happy weekend Haylie!
