Biscoff Chia Pudding

I always thought that life would get easier as kids grow up. But no, I am wrong. As they grow up, they get complicated. We then tend to compare how we were at their age and wonder what is happening to today’s generation. I was shocked when soon-to-turn seven Azza told me that she and her friend were discussing how many business their fathers have. “Ummi, she told me her abba has ** shops, so I told her that my abba has ** shops.” Discussion of wealth… really? At times, Rasha speaks in a tone to imply that whatever we have is theirs. I always wonder whether we even thought this way when we were their age. We weren’t bothered about how much our parents had, but we opened our eyes and saw them more without being implicit, that even asking a penny mattered to us, it made us think several times before we asked. I thought it was only with me, but all my friends seem to be worried about this aspect about their growing children. I am wondering what is going wrong. Is it the dispersion of too much information? Our children seem to be growing much faster and knowing much more things that we did at their age. And even thinking so much ahead… which is really scary…. As fiercely as I try to protect their childhood and innocence, I know for sure that many things are not in my control at all… May Allah make it easy for us to protect our children from unwanted thoughts and hard-to-meet expectations about life… Aameen…

Chia is not something I would love to eat everyday. It makes me quite queasy. Having said that, it is one of the easiest and hassle free breakfasts you could prepare with hardly any time required, other than the waiting time, which the fridge will do for you! πŸ˜‰ Combine with it a little of your favorite flavors and it turns into a delicious breakfast that can be passed off like a dessert. I have used Biscoff to flavor this simple breakfast and topped it with some banana slices and almonds, which according to me are the best friends of Biscoff. By the way, has anybody noticed that Biscoff spread is not available in outlets these days? I don’t know whether it is just me, or I am not looking around properly, but I haven’t been able to find it on any of the shelves these days. The Lotus cookies are available but not the spread. πŸ™ Of late, I have seen some alternatives but I didn’t like the taste and somehow had to finish them off. The only brand that tasted close enough was Penotti, thought it is less sweeter than Biscoff, which I found to be a very good advantage.

 

Anyway, if breakfast looked as pretty as this every day, who wouldn’t want to have it? πŸ™‚

  1. This is perfect either for breakfast or as a dessert!

      Thanks a lot Angie…

  2. I think raising a child is more challenging now, trying to protect but still make sure they grow into independent adults. I sometimes wish they would stay between the age of 6m to 1 1/2 years that was my favorite ages hahaha. I havent used chia in my cooking yet, maybe should give it try soon. Do your girls eat them?

    1. Rafeeda AR Author says:

      How much we wish! But they grow up without even giving a thought… the kids don’t take chia, and I haven’t tried giving it to them. This usually is my on-the-go breakfast on working days… Thanks a lot Nammi…

  3. Chia is best with non-diary milk and I havent tried that way! So Chia pudding has happened only once! I use it only to sprinkle over my oatmeal bowl. Once I made a mistake of adding it into the blender with mango and banana and all of it went into trash πŸ™ Still learning to use it .. πŸ˜› Biscoff is still there here… last week I saw some huge jars with some 100 grams free etc.. but I didnt pick. They had more crunchy stock than creamy.

    1. Rafeeda AR Author says:

      I am wondering why you trashed it! I have blend chia and it becomes a sloppy pudding, but especially in smoothies, only a tsp is enough, just like how you add flax. I just rediscovered Biscoff now, it has started coming again… πŸ™‚ Thank you so much Fami…

      1. trashed it because it had awful taste. May be I added too much chia. I dont like the slimy texture so prefer to add chia as topping – at least I like its crunch.

        1. Rafeeda AR Author says:

          Actually chia can taste awful at times, it makes me very queasy… The crunch is surely a better option!

  4. looks so yum … perfect breakfast option

    1. Rafeeda AR Author says:

      Thanks dear Anupa…

  5. Filling one and yummy!
