To make the chocolate pudding:

  1. Combine the coconut cream, cocoa powder, maple syrup, and collagen. Stir well and refrigerate at least one hour

To make the chia seed pudding:

  1. Combine the chia seeds, almond milk, molasses, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and cinnamon. Stir well and refrigerate at least one hour
  2. After both puddings have set, assemble in small mason jars or cups by scooping half the chocolate pudding into the bottom of one jar, the other half reserved for the other jar. Do the same with the chia seed pudding, layering it on top of the chocolate pudding

To make the maple cinnamon pecan top:

  1. Pour the maple syrup and vanilla extract into a small saucepan and add the cinnamon. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium high heat and add the pecans. Lower the heat and stir the pecans frequently, until most of the maple liquid has coated the pecans – around 2-4 minutes
  2. Let the pecans cool slightly then top the parfaits
  3. Assemble and serve
