  1. Thank you for this recipe. I do not have any nut butter on hand so I am going to add toasted walnuts to the mixture in the food processor. I might also add the chia seeds and see what happens, I’m wondering if the pudding will gel and be more smooth. In the past, my chia puddings almost always turn out lumpy, the seeds collecting on the top of the mix even though I stir it several times while it cools.
