Flaxseed Pudding is made with ground flaxseed, plant milk, maple syrup and vanilla. It’s a super healthy breakfast for snack that’s easy to make and loaded with protein, healthy fats and fiber.



1 cup ground flaxseed (flaxseed meal)
1 and 2/3 cups unsweetened plant milk such (almond, oat, coconut, soy)
1.5-2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla
a pinch of salt (optional)


  1. Mix ground flaxseed and all other ingredients in a bowl or a jar, cover with a lid or plastic wrap and let sit in the fridge for at least 1 hour or overnight to thicken.
  2. If desired, transfer into 3 small jars or containers and top with fresh or dried fruit and nuts before serving.


If you prefer thicker pudding, use 1.5 cups of milk instead of 1 and 2/3 cups. If you prefer thinner consistency, more porridge-like, use 2 cups of milk.

To sweeten the pudding, you can also use honey, coconut sugar or sweetener of your choice. To make this pudding Whole30 friendly, use a small mashed banana.

Ground flaxseed loses freshness easily. To prevent it from going rancid, store it in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer. You can also grind it in a spice grinder or coffee grinder right before making the pudding.

My favorite brand of flaxseed meal to use is Bob’s Red Mill Golden Flaxseed Meal.
