This southern pecan pie in a jar is a simple pecan pie pudding with chia seeds is inspired by my favorite Louisiana dessert, maple pecan pie! This chia pudding has two delicious layers, the pecan pudding layer and a vanilla and maple chia pudding layer.


Chia Pudding Layer

  • 1/4 Cup Chia Seeds
  • 1 Cup Oat Milk
  • 2 Tablespoons Maple Syrup
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Sea Salt

Pecan Cream Layer

  • 1 Cup Pecan Halves (soaked for 30 minutes in hot water and drained)
  • 1/2 Cup Oat Milk
  • 2 Tablespoons Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon


  1. Mix all the chia pudding layer ingredients in a bowl. Whisk together for about a minute until everything is evenly combined.
  2. Place the chia pudding mixture in the fridge and let it set for about 1 to 3 hours (or overnight).
  3. Ensure you soaked your pecan halves for 30 minutes in hot water then drain.
  4. Combine all of the pecan cream ingredients in your blender and blend on high until evenly combined and silky smooth.
  5. Evenly split the chia pudding mixture into three small jars (6-ounce jars are pictured here).
  6. Pour the pecan cream layer on top of the chia pudding layer.
  7. Place the jars in the fridge to set for 3 hours before eating.
  8. Top with pecan pieces and enjoy!
