Apple Pie Chia Parfait Is Perfect Anytime

This is a delicious breakfast, snack or even a healthy dessert. Due to their high fiber content, the chia seeds make this a pudding into an instant. You can easily substitute the chia seeds for flaxseeds if you prefer. Plus, add any nut or seed that you fancy. There’s plenty of natural sweetness from the apples, but you can add more to taste — I recommend taste testing before you serve. You can make two large servings or four smaller servings.

  • 3 large apples, peeled, cored and diced
