 peanut butter and jelly chia pudding

Not that I would ever say no to a mile-high stack of breakfast-in-bed silver dollars with a few carats of diamonds on the side…


…but the true key to my heart can be found in a jar of peanut butter.

Preferably a Costco-sized one. I mean, go big or go home, right?


HOW.EVER. special occasions like The Day That Shall Not Be Named on Saturday or, say…my BIRTHDAY MONTH, require a little something more than a spoon and a jar and some alone time on a lazy Thursday night.

That’s where this chia pudding comes in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We should probably do some cartwheels to celebrate.

Can you tell I’m just slightly obsessed with it?


This is really a mix-and-go kind of fab-o-lous breakfast situation.

Mix up the chia seeds with some milk, Greek yogurt, and a touch of honey the night before you want to eat it so that it actually becomes a pudding and not just chia slush. We don’t need any more slush in our lives, I promise.

Layer, scoop, layer, scoop, sprinkle.

And then use it to romanticize your special someone. Even if your special someone is yourself.

    I’m a big chia pudding fan but have never thought to fancy it up like this. Must make asap!

  2. You are so darn creative! What a good looking recipe.
    Yay birthday month!!

  3. Emma says:

    Not ashamed to say I paid $6 for a bougie PB&J at a restaurant last week (okay, a little ashamed). Sometimes you just need a fix, amiright? Would much rather dig into these guys!

  4. This is a decadent yet healthy breakfast or dessert!

  5. I think EVERY morning should just consist of this pudding. I mean, PBJ-anything is total breakfast food and I would never say no to either in the breakfast department!

  6. Sues says:

    Oh yum! This is way better than the average chia pudding! You can’t go wrong with peanut butter and jelly 🙂

  7. I’ll have one for breakfast and then another for lunch and snack! Peanut butter all day, every day!

  8. I love the sound of these chia puddings!! It would be instant love for me 🙂

  9. I eat chia seeds basically every day and have never made them into a pudding. The F is wrong with me? This looks SO good. Any excuse to a big slather of PB.

  10. I wish I had one of these for breakfast!

  11. I must live under a rock – I don’t think I’ve ever tried chia with PB and jelly! Clearly am not thinking too well! Gotta try this combo – in a BIG jar because YOU told me to “go big or go home”! 🙂

  12. I can’t even! This is so creative, Joanne! It’s definitely a fun, healthy way to get a pb&j fix.

  13. Pam says:

    I have a feeling my peanut butter loving son would really dig this!

  14. Anything layered like this screams my name! I want this sooooo bad!!

  15. I want this for breakfast riiiiiiight now! Too bad it’s dinner time here, but I can get it sorted for the morning, right? Gonna! But those Costco-sized jars of peanut butter you mention? Yeah, I can’t get them where I live. The biggest jar I’ve got access to holds approx 1.5 cups of PB, which is just ridiculous. My mom was visiting and held it up and was like, what, you don’t like peanut butter? No! It’s that that’s the large jar! Ugh!

  16. There I was thinking the PB and chocolate combination was as good as PB got…clearly I was so very, very wrong! These look amazing!!

  17. yes, please!! this looks perfect! 🙂

  18. THIS sounds fabulous!!! Especially PB&J-ified!

  19. I’m totally drooling over these photos, Joanne … beautiful light!
    Also a beautiful idea for a dessert/breakfast (dessert for breakfast – I like it! ) I still haven’t had a go at a chia seed pudding – you’ve reminded me that I absolutely must!
    Happy Valentine’s Day!

  20. Natalie says:

    MIND BLOWN. love everything about this!

  21. Rachel says:

    I am still unsure how I feel about chia pudding. The times I’ve had it, I have enjoyed it, but then I think about what it is and it weirds me out a bit 🙂 However! this looks amazing and I think will get me over my fear 🙂

  22. Ahhh! This chia pudding looks positively epic. I’ve only just started getting used to the idea of eating chia seeds like pudding (haha) so I’m fascinated by all the variations. Peanut butter and jelly sounds fab! I’m totally going to have to try this soon. Pinning for now!

  23. I have yet to try chia pudding, but now I’m sold. Peanut Butter and Jelly makes everything better 😉

  24. Yum, yum, yum!! I am all over this PB&J chia pudding! Costco-sized peanut butter, all day, any day!

  25. My peanut butter-loving heart is going pitter-patter for this pudding. YUMS.

  26. You have put together 3 of my favourite things. You are a genius. I love chia pudding, so why hav I never thought to put peanut butter on it? Trying this for sure!

  27. Kelly says:

    This is what I want for breakfast every morning! I love chia pudding and this peanut butter and jelly version look perfect!

  28. Every single time I see recipes using chia seeds I cannot help but think of chia pets and therefore the idea of eating it seems a bit odd but if there’s one sure way to convince me it’s mixing it with peanut butter!

  29. What a delicious pudding, pb and j in the best way possible 😀

  30. I am dying over this!! I need to get on the chia pudding band wagon – this looks so good!

  31. This combination looks so terrific in the chia seed pudding. I’m a HUGE peanut butter lover, so I have no doubt I’d eat this up and love it!

  32. Kate says:

    Seriously, I wish I could get my chia pudding to look like yours!

  33. I’ve been slow to come around to chia, but dang it! I have to try this – seriously looks so amazing!

  34. Reeni says:

    My life needs to be chia-fied! Can’t wait to try these with the chia seeds sitting in my pantry – all lonely because I had no idea what to do with them.

  35. Those beautiful peanut butter and jelly layers!! I’m in love with this chia pudding!

  36. I still have not tried chia seeds 🙂

  37. Asha says:

    You sure a creative one my friend.
    I’ve recently started making chia pudding, this one might be something I would love especially Costco-sized:-).

  38. Veronica says:

    If you had a foodie theme song, I’m pretty sure it would be this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LVPNXsc4wsQ I love how many cool things you make with peanut butter and jelly, most especially the macarons. But this, this I am craving and will be making b/c I actually have allll the ingredientz. Yezzz. It will be mine.

  39. Johanna GGG says:

    ooh the peanut butter looks so good that I want to dive in – and really in my dreams that jar is filled with just peanut butter but I am sure it is easier to get through a jar if some of it is filled with chia pudding 🙂

  40. Eileen says:

    Well, now I have a a definite craving for a boatload of raspberry jam! These sound delightful and easy — the best kind of dessert. 🙂

  41. An interesting pudding – Joanne – and it looks so pretty. YUM!

  42. Ala says:

    So last year I ate so much PB from the jar that my mouth actually started having minor swelling issues every time I tried to eat more. So. I kind of weaned myself off last month, but now I’m just DYING to get my hands on some PB&J again–and definitely this pudding!!

  44. Oh my goodness! What is THIS?? You know I stock pile chia seeds, right? Totally need to make this…with sunflower butter, of course. But still.

  45. oh my gawd, how did I miss this awesomeness?! I was one of those kids who, right when I got home from school, would grab the peanut butter and a spoon and go to town. . I only do this occasionally now because I have young, impressionable children around me. . and I’m an adult 😛 love this!

  46. From now on, I’m not getting out of bed for anything less than PB&J!

  47. Shannon says:

    Hi Joanne! First, I’m new to your blog and so far I’m loving it! Your photos are amaaaaazing. Second, it’s like you knew I was having a phase with peanut butter and everything.
    Last, I’m wondering if you could estimate quantities for a single portion or perhaps two? I’m not the most experienced cook so would appreciate your guidance.

    Thank you!

    • joanne says:

      Of course, I’d love to help! I usually halve the recipe and make 4 servings, and that works out great. You can store them in the fridge and they keep for at least a week.

      For 2 servings, I wold mix 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup Greek yogurt, 2 heaping tbsp of chia seeds, and 1 tbsp honey. Let that sit in the fridge overnight. Then, divide into two half cup servings and add about 2 tbsp peanut butter and 1 tbsp raspberry jelly per serving.

  48. jen says:

    No thanks – I’ve tried and tried to like chia seed pudding – just too dang slimy no matter what you do. I do put chia seeds in other things where they aren’t the star.

    I mixed up seeds, milk and yogurt last night in anticipation of a treat this morning but most of my seeds had sunk to the bottom and formed a glumpy mass, with the milk/ yogurt on top not thickened.. What did I do wrong? Spent some time and muscle trying to break up the lumps with the back of the spoon. It’s better but still uneven..
