I’m new to chia seed puddings. I didn’t try that many variations yet but this one is by far the best and most comforting. Since I didn’t have pecans I made the sticky topping with almonds and it was delicious. I think the only “problem” (but not really) with this recipe is that the sticky topping is sooo good it overpowers the flavour of the chia seed pudding.
Thank you so much! You can feel free to scale back on the topping if you prefer.
This was so good! Some days, I can’t handle the texture of chia seed pudding but the sticky pecan topping makes the texture more than bearable. (The incredible flavor helps too!) There’s something so satisfying about the cold chia pudding and the warm sticky pecans together. One final note, I didn’t have agave and used honey instead, still delicious. :)
Thank you! I’m glad that you liked it! =) And thank you for your note about using honey. It’s helpful to hear about the subs that work well.
Try adding oatmeal and it is amazing!
