Most pudding recipes use cornstarch as the main thickening agent, but this pudding uses oats! The oats do the trick of thickening the pudding while still maintaining that smooth and creamy pudding texture.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

Here is what you’ll need to make this oatmeal chocolate pudding:

Ingredients to make oatmeal chocolate pudding
  • Oat Flour: I usually make my own oat flour by blending rolled oats into a flour-like texture. Gluten-free rolled oats make this oatmeal chocolate pudding gluten-free.
  • Unsweetened Cocoa Powder: For the chocolate flavor in this pudding. Make sure to use all-natural, unsweetened cocoa powder.
  • Milk: I used whole milk for this pudding but any type of milk or non-dairy alternative works as well.
  • Maple Syrup: The source of sweetness for this chocolate pudding.
  • Vanilla Extract: Optional ingredient for added flavor.

PROCESS

  1. Add all of the ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. If you are using rolled oats, blend the oats into a flour before blending in the other ingredients. When you blend the ingredients together, it will resemble a light chocolate milk, but it will thicken once heated.
  2. Transfer the liquid into a small saucepan and place it over medium heat. Let it come to a simmer and whisk it constantly for 2-3 minutes as it begins to thicken. Once it is thickened to your liking, remove it from the heat.
  3. Transfer the pudding mixture to a container and place it in the fridge for at least one hour so that the pudding can cool and set.

RECIPE NOTES

  • If your pudding mixture is too thick for your liking as it is heating up, feel free to add in a few more splashes of milk to thin it out.
  • Make sure that your ingredients blend together very well so that there aren’t any chunks of oats in your pudding. Use a well-powered blender to get the mixture smooth, I love using my nutribullet!
  • Feel free to adjust the amount of maple syrup to your liking!
