This Apple Pie Chia pudding is essentially an egg-free no cook custard, suitable for absolutely anyone, but brilliant for little people mastering the use of a spoon! Last month I posted my 3 Ingredient Banana Chia Pudding recipe and I received so much great feedback that I thought I’d better get some other flavour options up on my site for people to try. You will find the recipe video for the banana chia pudding at the bottom of the post, it will give you an idea of how easy it is to whip up a chia pudding for kids.
Chia pudding can sometimes have a bit of an “alternative”, “fancy”, “hippy” type rap, but these days you can pick them up in any supermarket, and essentially what they allow you to do is replace the egg in almost any recipe quickly and easily. Hence this Apple Pie Chia Pudding is really just an allergy-friendly custard that you don’t even need to cook!
I’ve been using chia seeds a fair bit on this site to make some of my existing recipes more allergy-friendly, they work brilliantly in burger patties to create a juicy no egg no breadcrumb patty that doesn’t crumble.
They come into their own in energy bites like my new Apricot Choc Chip Chia No-Bake Bites (hubby approved I might add) They allowed me to create my ultimate allergy-friendly cookies free from the top 8 food allergens, and they are great in my Apple Pie Oat Bars.
