Flaxseed pudding is a nutritious recipe for an easy breakfast or snack. With only 4 ingredients and 5 minutes, this pudding is easy to make, vegan, and gluten-free. This recipe is also great for meal prepping.



Toppings: soy yogurt, frozen raspberries, maple syrup, flaxseed meal, and chopped walnuts.


Add half the flaxseed meal and half the amount of plant-based milk to a mixing bowl. Stir with a fork to combine and remove any clumps.
Add the remaining flaxseed meal and plant-based milk and stir to combine.

Next, add the maple syrup and vanilla extract and stir until it’s combined with the flaxseed meal and milk. Taste and adjust sweetness if needed. 

Cover the bowl and place it in the fridge so it can thicken overnight or for at least 30 minutes. But if the consistency of the pudding is to your liking after mixing it, you can serve it right away.

To make a single serving, scoop out the flaxseed pudding in a bowl or glass jar and add toppings, such as yogurt, nuts, and berries. 


  • This recipe is pretty thick, but if you prefer a thinner pudding, use 1.5 cups (330 ml) of plant-based milk. And if you prefer an even thinner porridge, use 2 cups of plant-based milk (440 ml).
  • Ground flaxseed or flaxseed meal (it’s the same) loses its freshness quickly. Store it in a glass container with a lid in the fridge or freezer to prevent it from going rancid. You can grind the whole flaxseeds before making the pudding if you want to use fresh flaxseed meal.
  • This recipe is perfect to make ahead and enjoy throughout the week.
  • Place this pudding (covered) in the fridge so it can last up to 5 days.
