Favorite Granola Pudding is a stick to you ribs breakfast comfort food and because it is sweet it can also be satisfying for dessert. So very easy!
How can it be that when I actually dissect what my husband eats and what I eat – he makes the healthier choices. Another thing is that he also makes gorgeous smoothies – every day!
Well, I have come up with a recipe that is better for you too. It is Your Favorite Granola Pudding. Completely different from smoothies but it is a stick to you ribs breakfast comfort food and because it is sweet it can also be satisfying for dessert.
There are so many nutrients and vitamins that we need in our lives. Foods that offer protein and fiber are way up there on the list too. I am always looking for new ways to include these healthful food groups into my life.
There are so many great varieties of non-dairy milk in the stores now. Right next to my Silk Coconut Milk. So, how fun is that? Almondmilk Protein + Fiber went home with me and I added it to granola along with other wonderful ingredients, baked it and made a pudding. How about that!
Favorite Granola Pudding
- 4 cups dairy-free milk - (yes, 4 cups) I used Silk Almondmilk
- 1 1/2 cups granola cereal - I used a gluten-free one with dried cranberries
- 1 egg replacer - I used 1 chia egg that is made with 1 chia seed flour and 3 Tablespoons water
- 1/4 cup coconut sugar
- A chia egg is actually made with chia seed meal/flour not the bare seed. The way you make meal/flour is by grinding the chia seed in a processor such as one for your coffee beans or a spice grinder. I use mine to strictly grind seeds so that I do not mix flavors. Grind until it is a fine meal. I do about 4 ounces at a time and keep it in a little freezer safe canning jar - in the freezer. When I need a Tablespoon or so it is all ready to go.
- Mix the chia egg and set aside so that it can gel.
- Liberally butter (vegan butter) a 9" x 9" casserole dish.
- Mix the granola and sugar together.
- Combine the milk and egg mixture together and mix.
- Sprinkle the granola mixture all over the bottom of the casserole.
- Pour the milk mixture over the top.
- I use my fingertips to spread the granola evenly over the bottom.
- Bake at 350° for 2-1/2 hours.
- The milk will cook and bake into the granola and you will have a wonderful pudding.
- You can pour a little bit more non-dairy milk over the top too.
