Instructions
PREPARE THE CHIA SEED PUDDING
  1. Add the ingredients for the chia seed pudding to a large jar. Seal the jar and shake well until everything is combined. Refrigerate overnight  (or at least three hours). When ready to serve, stir the chia seed pudding well. Taste for flavor and add more pure maple syrup if desired. Serve with caramelized pears and granola on top (see instructions).

MAKE THE CARAMELIZED PEAR
  1. Heat the butter over medium heat until melted and slightly bubbly. Add the sliced pear, making a single layer (it's okay if the pear slices overlap a little), followed by the pure maple syrup, ground cinnamon, and sea salt. 

  2. Cook, turning the pears occasionally, until they are soft and begin to caramelize, about 8 to 10 minutes. If necessary, lower the heat to medium-low at any time to avoid burning the pears. 

Recipe Notes

If desired, use 1 cup of whole milk yogurt and 1-1/2 cups of unsweetened almond milk. Simply stir the two together until combined, and proceed as normal.
