Rejuvenating Red Oats and Chia Pudding

By Kerstin Cox, HCTP November 2017

You can eat this delicious pudding as breakfast and quickly prepare it the night before. Oats are rich in healthy soluble fiber, and chia seeds and almond butter give you super healthy fats as well as plant protein, which will help you feel fuller for longer. Plus, the warming and delicious spices are rich in antioxidants and have anti-inflammatory properties that can help control blood sugar levels.



For the oats:

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup oat milk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground sumac

For the chia pudding:

  • 1 cup oat milk
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Mix all ingredients for oats in one jar and all ingredients for chia pudding in another. Refrigerate both jars overnight.
  2. In the morning, divide red overnight oats into two glasses, then spoon in chia pudding as second layer. Top with yogurt and berries. Enjoy!
