Keto Chia "Tapioca" Pudding

Chia seeds are naturally rich in healthy omega-3 fatty acids and other important nutrients. They’re also high in fiber, low in carbs, and abundant with crunchy-gelatinous texture, the latter of which makes them a perfect healthy pudding ingredient. This version has mild flavor, just like classic tapioca pudding; you can boost and change the flavor by adding cinnamon, cocoa, or pumpkin spice, recalculating your macros if needed. Can’t find toasted coconut flakes? Toast your own in one layer on a rimmed baking sheet in a 350°F (175°C) oven until lightly browned, 5 to 10 minutes. Note: this recipe requires overnight refrigeration, so plan accordingly. Leftover pudding (without berries and toppings) can be refrigerated in an airtight container for one week.
Serves 4 One Serving: 1 glass

Bake for 4 minutes, shake and toss, continue baking until golden brown, and fragrant, 5 to 10 minutes more, checking frequently to avoid overcooking. Immediately transfer the almonds to a plate to cool.
