Toasted Maple Pecan Overnight Chia Pudding
Happy Valentine’s Day, you little lover! Are you making my Valentine’s Day Chocolate Chip Chocolate Heart Cookies on this non-special holiday? You totes should. Instead of making those cookies, I’ll be getting my face lasered off. Nothing says I love you to your significant other like them coming home to your fright show face! Love you, honey!
Let’s get our Bachelor recap on, already!! I’ve got to hand it to Nick – he may be a boring mumbling son of a b*tch, but he sure knows how to throw some curve balls. I absolutely did not expect him to send home…well I’ll get to that. But for real, he seems dumb AF, but he sure knows how to keep us entertained. The sneaky sonofab.
The show started off right where it had left off – all the girls sitting in a room in shock, thinking that Nick is going to leave the show since he just cried to them and said he wasn’t sure what he was doing. Ok ladies, he’s not going to quit the show, it’s called a contractual obligation, you fool! Plus, who would Chris Harrison talk to at random points? Do you think he travels with the show or the producers just call him up and say, “Hey Harrison, Nick is having a break down. Can you come to St. Martin in your best khaki manpris? Cool, you’re the best!” With no Nick, there is no Chris Harrison, and we need that unneeded man oh so badly in our TV lives.
The girls quickly change out of their sorrow attitudes when they find out they are going to Bimini. Which is pretty much the most adorable island place ever. Nick starts off his first date in Bimini with Vanessa. I would just like to state for the record that I TOTALLY knew it would be Vanessa. I’m so smart. Vanessa gets to go on a giant boat with Nick. She’s now been in an airplane and a boat, spoiled biotch. I was slightly worried the whole time that she might have another vomit situation like she did on the plane, but she held that sh*t down. Too bad. The only thing they really did was kiss under water…can you imagine how salty that kiss was? Talk about romance!
Danielle has the next date, which the poor thing thinks is going awesome, and Nick gives her the boot. I think he was bored to death by Danielle’s whispering voice, but little does he know, his mumbling voice is 10x worse. It’s sad to see her go because she seems like a real nice human. But since when do the people who got kicked out get to go talk to the housemates and cry to them as they leave? Has that always been a thing!?
Next up, a 3 on 1 date with Kristina, Raven, and Corrine. I’m very surprised Corinne has made it this far, but I love it. Because she’s the only one who eats. And sleeps. No one else ever eats the food that is left out for them. It’s offensive. Nothing really happens on the date other than Nick giving Raven the rose, which was totally unexpected. You know what WAS expected, though? A random concert on the beach where they dance awkwardly. Called it! I never thought Raven would make it this far either, especially since she was obviously signed up for the show to meet Luke, NOT Nick. But can we just talk about how great this show will be for her clothing boutique back home?! Genius!
My favorite part of the entire episode was Corinne talking about how bloated she is. Because it got me thinking…most people get backed up on vacation. Does this mean all these women are ALL backed up for the past however many weeks they’ve been going through this?! COULD YOU IMAGINE?! Women backed up and going through that lovely time of the month all together, then forced to wear bikinis everywhere. Hell, pure hell.
Ok, last but not least. Corinne tries to sleep with Nick and she gets rejected. Do you think the walk of shame back to your hotel room is more or less embarrassing when the act doesn’t go down? Then Rachel has her date. I know everyone is in love with Rachel because she’s the only normal and sane human being, but I honestly just get on my phone and look at instagram whenever she is on. She’s boring AF. Then the grand finale of the night goes down – he sends home Kristina and literally ALL OF THE WORLD hates Nick. Kristina was the little Russian that talked about her life in the orphanage and made Nick cry. Well, he booted her out of the blue. Didn’t see it coming. And now everyone hates Nick and is praying that she is the next bachelorette. But honestly, I’m hoping that the next bachelorette is Raven. That girl has a witty sense of humor, a thick southern accent, and some one-liners that were made for primetime TV. Who will it be? Hard to know. Ok, not really, I’m sure there are 22893090 spoilers that I could read online, but I refuse! Until then, I will continue to believe that Rachel and Vanessa will be the last two at the end. There it is, there’s my guess. Leaving it all out there.
But wait, before you go, can we just talk about how amazing the Beauty and the Beast movie is going to be?! I literally die. I need that movie debut to come out ASAP so I can see it as many times as I saw the cartoon Beauty and the Beast as a child. AHHHHHHHHICANTWAIT!!Print
Toasted Maple Pecan Overnight Chia Pudding
- Yield: 2-3 1x
- 1 cup pecans
- 1 cup almond milk (I used MALK maple pecan milk)
- 1 scoop Primal Kitchen Vanilla Primal Fuel
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 heaping tablespoon almond butter (or other nut or seed butter)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ¼ cup chia seeds
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place pecans on a baking sheet and put in oven to bake for 8-10 minutes, until slightly brown and fragrant. Once toasted, roughly chop and separate by half.
- Use a high speed blender to blend together almond milk, primal fuel, maple syrup, almond butter, and vanilla extract until smooth.
- Place the blended mixture into a resealable large jar (or 2 smaller jars) then add chia seeds and 1/2 of the chopped pecans. Seal jar and shake.
- Place in refrigerator overnight or for at least 3+ hours. I recommend placing in the fridge for about 20 minutes, shaking once more, then overnight. This will keep it from separating.
- Place extra pecans on top with a little extra maple syrup then eat up. Breakfast is served.

So, I haven’t watched last night so I intentionally read this because I have a shit ton of stuff to do today and may not get to watch for a few days. BUT I am not super surprised about Kristina leaving. As cute as she was, I didn’t really see a spark between the two of them.
Also–I was just ranting to my husband about how if I drank champagne for 6 weeks straight I would probably gain 10 pounds like it’s nothing, so duh Corinne is bloated! I was actually thinking that on the last episode when they played beach volleyball. Like, no thanks to flopping around in a bikini on the beach on TV after no gym access and an alcohol-based diet for weeks lol.
Sorry I’m ranting but one more thing. I’m SO excited Raven has made it this far because I actually put her as winning on my Bachelor-bracket that my friends and I did. I have no idea why, but I thought she’d sneak up from behind. I think Vanessa and Rachel were the obvious choices, and I knew Danielle M would make it awhile, but I think Raven know how to play the game.
LOL Nick’s mumbling….drives.me.nuts!!! It sounds like he simultaneously has a mouth full of food and also his jaw is wired shut. Can’t trust a thing he says, either. He’s a total snooze fest!
I loved how Raven talked about punching a shark in the face. That girl has some serious violent tendencies hidden behind her sweet southern charm. If Nick sends her home, he better lock his doors and watch his back. After last night’s episode, I think Nick is going to be alone forever.
I wish Corinne would be the next Bachelorette. Now THAT would be entertaining TV!
Can’t wait to see Corinne and Chad get together on Paradise this summer…because you KNOW that’s happening! It’s a deli meat and pizza rolls match made in heaven!
omg the maple pecan malk is SO F*CKING GOOD. put that in my coffee once, and freak out every time that it’s not available on the coffee bar anymore.
but then I see it in the fridge case and it’s like chloe the cat from secret life of pets trying not to eat the chicken ( https://youtu.be/lBkHxJazRV4 – in case you haven’t seen it…). it’s so expensive!
They announced the next bachelorette on last night’s Jimmy Kimmel show! It’s a big spoiler bc she’s still on the show but you are not going to be pleased…
i heard. so weird they announced that, why would they do that?! and i’m DEFINITELY not pleased
Love the Bachelor reviews Juli! I agree about Raven – I love her! She’s hilarious and adorable. So bummed about Kristina! I guess at this point I’m hoping for Vanessa! Can’t wait to try this recipe!
Omg Juli! I don’t even watch The Bachelor but with your witty descriptions I don’t think I have to! You are truly hysterical and I ❤️ reading your comments. Don’t EVER change
I don’t even watch the Bachelor (being in Aus) Juli but I love your recaps!! 😀 Watching it vicariously through you haha!
Definitely going to have to try this recipe out – it looks delish! I’m just not sure at what stage I need to add the protein powder? It doesn’t seem to be in the instructions?
sorry about that, all fixed! it’s blended with all the other ingredients!
Awesome! Thanks Jules 😀
I’d never heard of MALK milks before. Thanks again for letting us know about another awesome product!
it is seriously the best!
Love your recaps almost as much as your recipes !
Have you checked out this podcast yet?
Reality Steve Podcast by Reality Steve
i haven’t, but isn’t he the guy that gives all the spoilers for the bachelor?
He is….Some of the interviews are fascinating .
Maybe give it a listen after this season is over!
started listening already lol i couldn’t help myself! i also listen to girl with a podcast and she interviews olivia from Ben’s season and it’s soooooo interesting!
So I’m sick and read the recipe with a foggy medicine head. I accidentally added the chia seats with the other ingredients in the high speed blender. What will be the result? Otherwise so excited to try it!
i’m sure it will be fine! it will just be a slightly different consistency!
OMG! Raven and Luke! Why didn’t I think of that!
It was amazing! And my mistake means I don’t have to pick seeds out of my teeth. 🙂
I was wondering if you need to use the Primal Fuel?
you could leave it out!
I have a dumb question. Because that’s the only kind of question that I ask.
Could I make the blended mixture and keep it for the week so each night I could just add the chia seeds/pecans for it so sit overnight? I’m assuming if it sits too long it’ll get way too gummy, but I’d like to avoid having to measure/blend every night to have this each morning. If you couldn’t tell, I already made this once, and it is BOMB! Boyfriend and I are both obsessed.
Also…. I’m about as addicted to the Bachelor franchise of shows as one could possible be, and I loooove your recaps. And now I also want to go listen to the spoilers. AAAHHHH
Glad I tasted this before I gave it to my kids because they inhaled it. So yummy.
how sweet does this end up being? Thanks!
not completely sure how to answer this, i think it’s moderately sweet. but i think it depends on your sugar tolerance and what amounts you find sweet
This was so awesome! I’ve made it twice to take camping for breakfast. I love using the PK Vanilla Primal Fuel to add protein for satiety. 6 thumbs up from me, my son, and my hubby! 🙂 Thanks for the great recipe, Juli!
