I go through serious phases with breakfast (lots of smoothies and smoothie bowls, obvi). But there's a non-negotiable: breakfast must be EASY (I'm talking 5 minutes or less). Or made prep-ahead style, a little wake-up gift to my future-self. 

These little pecan pie chia parfaits are so simple to throw together, they basically make themselves (because simple is always best… in recipes and in life ✌🏼). Take just a minute to mix together the date-sweetened almond milk with the chia seeds and divide between glasses or jars the night before.

The mixture will work it's magic and set overnight, turning into a creamy, spoonable chia pudding. When you're ready for breakfast, just layer with all the pecan pie goodness; some yogurt (mixed with collagen peptides if you want a protein boost 💪🏼), pumpkin pie spice, and chopped pecans. 

And chia seeds? They're little powerhouses of protein and healthy fat that naturally expand in liquid. Full of health benefits, they're detoxifying, great for digestion, full of omega-3s, and will keep you full until lunch (no 10am sugar crash with these babies).
