Peanut Butter Chia Pudding

Peanut Butter Chia Pudding | #Ketochiaseedrecipes #Ketochiapuddingbreakfast #Raspberrychiapudding #Ketochiapuddinglowcarb #Chiaseedpuddingketolowcarb #Ketoovernightchiapudding #Pumpkinspicechiapudding #Veganchiapudding #Raspberrychiapudding #Veganglutenfreerecipes #Mangochiaseedpudding #Chiaseedsrecipes

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 Tablespoon maple syrup or honey
  • 3 Tablespoons chia seeds
  • Toppings: extra peanut butter, cacao nibs and berries

Instructions

  1. Whisk together almond milk, chia seeds, maple syrup, peanut butter and vanilla. This takes a little effort because the peanut butter tends to stick together, but keep stirring until it’s dispersed. Let mixture sit for five minutes and whisk again to remove any clumps. Place in fridge to set for at least 30 minutes, but up to 12 hours.
  2. When ready to enjoy, top with toppings of choice: I like a drizzle of peanut butter, cacao nibs and berries, but banana slices would be delicious as well.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups cauliflower florets
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 Tablespoon sriracha
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 Tablespoon tamari or soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400ยบ. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl (or a Ziplock bag) combine cauliflower and other ingredients – maple syrup, sriracha, olive oil, tamari, and pepper. Mix until the cauliflower is well coated.
  3. Pour the cauliflower onto the baking sheet and place in the oven. Be sure to give the cauliflower “room to breathe.” If the baking sheet is over-crowded, the cauliflower will “steam” and it won’t cook right. If you need to, divide it between 2 baking sheets.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes or until cauliflower is tender.
