Chia Pudding with Fig Jam and Homemade Granola


Chia Pudding

  • 6 tablespoons (Tbs) chia seeds

  • 2 tablespoons (Tbs) maple syrup

  • 2 teaspoons (tsp) vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste

  • 1 (400mL) can full fat coconut milk


  • 1/2 cup rolled oats

  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds

  • 1/3 cup almonds

  • 1/4 teaspoon (tsp) salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon (tsp) vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste

  • 2-3 teaspoons (tsp) coconut oil

  • 1-3 tablespoons (Tbs) maple syrup


  • 2-3 large or 5 small fresh figs

Additional Ingredients

  • 4 fresh figs sliced + additional figs for topping (optional)


  1. Depending on the size of your jars, you could increase the number of serves by creating smaller portion sizes.

  2. If your figs do not create a juicy and vibrant jam, you could bulk up the volume with a few fresh strawberries or other red/pink fresh fruit of your choice to preserve the colouring.

  3. Optional to prepare all ingredients in advance and store them in separate air-tight containers until ready to use. The jam and chia pudding are to be stored in a refrigerator, whereas the granola may be stored in a pantry or cupboard.


1. In a jar, combine ingredients for chia pudding, cover with a lid, mix well to combine and store in the fridge for 30-60 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, line a baking tray with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 350°F (~176°C).

3. Melt the coconut oil in a microwave or on a stovetop.

4. Combine the granola ingredients together, ensuring that all of the dry ingredients are well coated with syrup and oil.

5. Evenly spread granola over parchment paper and bake for 30-45 minutes, mixing the granola around about halfway through the cooking duration to promote even toasting. Allow the granola to cool for 15-20 minutes before use.

6. In a food processor, blend the figs for the fig jam, adding any sweeteners to suit your taste. Set aside.

7. Slice the remainder of fresh figs, optional to halve several for a garnish if you prefer.

8. Preparing the jars: layer fig slices around the inner circumference of the jar, then fill the base with a layer of chia pudding (~1/4 of the mixture).

9. Add a layer of granola on top of the chia pudding (~1/4 of the mixture).

10. Cover granola with half of the fig jam mixture.

11. Repeat, layering another serving of figs around the upper portion of the jar, followed by chia pudding, granola and top with fresh figs if desired.

12. Enjoy!
