Cozy up to fall and make this Autumn-Apple Pie Chia Pudding! This pudding is made with simple ingredients, is vegan and gluten-free, and tastes just like a delicious fresh baked apple pie. It is indulgent but without all the guilt. Enjoy it for breakfast, a snack or a fun dessert!

These jars are layered with creamy, apple pie flavored chia pudding, and then topped off with warm stewed cinnamon apples. And, I'm not kidding you, it tastes just like an apple pie!

You could even get fancy an add a drizzle of my Vegan Caramel Sauce to make it more of a dessert. Either way it's a winner!

Chia Pudding:
  • I like to use a full fat coconut milk for this recipe, as it lends to a rich and creamy texture.
  • You can make your own applesauce or use store-bought. If store-bought, just make sure to get one that is unsweetened.
  • Be sure to add the cinnamon because it really brings all the flavors together. (I've made it before without the cinnamon and it's just not the same). Adding the cinnamon gives it that warm/fall vibe and you want to taste that throughout the whole pudding.
  • The chia seeds I use are below, and it's a great brand!

Apple Pie Topping:
  • Apples - I love Honeycrisp apples, and I love to use them whenever possible. However, you can also use Ambrosia, Pink lady, or SweeTango in their place.
  • Apple Pie Spice - I use the one by McCormick and it includes a combination of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice.
  • Lemon - The only size I had on hand was a large one. So, I only used 1/4 of it. You can do that or use 1/2 of a small lemon. By adding the lemon, it cuts some of the sweetness, and evens out all of the flavors.

Autumn-Apple Pie Chia Pudding:
  • This is a simple recipe to pull together. Just add all of the pudding ingredients to a bowl, mix it, and let it rest in the fridge. (The longer the better). Once the pudding is ready, make the stewed apples, top each chia pudding as desired and enjoy right away.

Storage Tips:
  • Chia Pudding - You can store the pudding in one large container, or individual containers. I have listed my favorite type below. Also, please note, the pudding will keep in the fridge for up to one week.
  • Apples - I would store the apples separate from the pudding itself. When ready, warm the apples up and top each pudding.

    Could you please give a more precise measurement of the lemon juice, l for one find it hard to guess what someone else considers small medium or large. Thanks so much.

      Maybe try a teaspoon or two of lemon juice to start with and then go from there. The measurement doesn't have to be precise, because you just need a bit to mellow out the sweetness. I hope this helps.
