Chia and oatmeal pudding

Chia and oatmeal pudding

It’s now entirely appropriate to eat pudding for breakfast. Chia seeds give these oats their creamy texture. Quick and endlessly customizable (we like ours with banana and peanut butter), this is one meal worth getting up early for.

All of Anyday’s recipes are tested (and retested!) in many different microwaves and home kitchens to make sure they work — and work well.


Select your microwave wattage in the dropdown. The cook times in this recipe will automatically change accordingly.

To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

  • ½ cup (80g) chia seeds
  • ½ cup (50g) rolled oats
  • 2 cups (480ml) milk
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup (60g) peanut butter
  • 2 bananas, sliced


  1. Add all ingredients except the bananas into the Anyday dish and whisk to combine. Cover with the lid (knob lifted).
  2. Cook in the microwave for 4-5 minutes, making sure the milk doesn’t boil over, until the oatmeal and chia seeds have absorbed the milk, but aren’t super creamy yet. Cool for 1 minute with the lid still on.
  3. Remove the lid and mix well until the pudding becomes creamy. Garnish with fresh banana slices to serve.

Serving suggestions & tips

  • Add sugar, maple syrup, or honey to your liking. 
  • For a vegan version, replace the milk with water or plant-based milk. 
  • Mix, cover, and refrigerate the raw ingredients overnight for a no-cook version that’s ready first thing in the morning.
  • Microwave ovens vary, even with the same wattages. Adjust cooking times as needed.
