I’m sure we’ve all heard the phrase “you’ll understand when you’re older”. In most cases, even though I’m older, I still have no idea what’s going on. The exception to this, is Bounty Bars. As a kid, the idea of choosing one of these over, like, literally any other candy was preposterous. But now, I can’t get enough of that rich coconut filling and snappy chocolate coating. I want to eat them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And now I can with these Bounty Bar Chia Seed Pudding.
Inspired by this controversial candy bar, these jars hide a creamy, coconut chia pudding underneath a layer of homemade chocolate shell. Not going to lie, smashing into that thing in the morning is the best part of my day. You get to control your anger issues and have a tasty treat. Win-win!
With some chia seeds, coconut (in a few different forms), and a couple minutes of hands on time, you;ll have breakfast prepped for the week. Store them in the fridge and pull one out whenever you feel your bounty bar cravings hit. Smash through the chocolate shell, scoop out a bite of luscious coconut pudding, and feel your inner child scream bloody murder. Ahh pure bliss.
If you’re a bounty bar hater turned lover like me, or you were one of those FREAKS who actually liked these candies when you were nine, you’ll love this recipe.
