Maple Nut Chia Seed Pudding

Over the past few months I have fallen in love with chia seed pudding. I find it kind of magical how the little seeds swell an gel in the liquid. The only down side to making chia pudding is that it takes a good 6 hours for the seeds to slowly absorb the liquid, though it is even better over night, so in the evening when I want a little dessert, I crave chia seed pudding but 6 hours prior I didn’t think to make it. On days like today, I made one up as I fixed my lunch so that tonight it will be ready and waiting.
