Cookies 'n' Cream for Breakfast
I stumbled upon this magical combination of ingredients when I accidentally put too much almond milk in my chia pudding and it became more like chia almond milk. To regain the proper consistency I put it all in my blender and added a pinch of nutmeg and vanilla. Voila! Cookie’s ‘n’ cream. Then I got carried away dreaming about how to add something chocolatey to the mix and ended up with this chocolate cookie dough. I fully believe in extravagant breakfasts.
Raw Cookies ‘n’ Creme Pudding
Chocolate Cookie Dough:
4 Tbsp chopped cacao or cacao powder
¼ cup dried plums (yes, prunes, but I just refuse to use the word “prunes”)
¼ cup walnuts
pinch of salt
½ cup chia seeds
2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
6 Tbsp maple syrup or your choice of sweetener
1 tsp vanilla extract or powder
pinch of nutmeg
pinch of salt
optional: berries, fruit and/ or coconut flakes
To make the chocolate cookie dough: blend walnuts, dried plums, cacao and salt together until sticky and well combined.
To make the pudding: soak chia seeds in the almond milk for at least 2 hours (I usually just soak mine overnight). Blend together chia, almond milk, vanilla, nutmeg, salt and sweetener.
Crumble a small layer of the chocolate cookie dough into the bottom of a glass or jar. Pour a layer of chia pudding on top, add another layer of cookie dough and then more chia pudding. Optional: add a layer or two of your favorite fruit. I used cherries and it was dreamy. Garnish with chopped nuts and cacao. This will make enough for a few people (depending on how hungry you are). I usually like to make a lot and keep the chia pudding separate so I can make new combinations every morning. Enjoy with love!
