I have fond memories of Bread Pudding…a sweet, steamy and creamy dessert on a cold Canadian evening. Mmmm good! But of course back then the ingredients were white flour, sugar and milk, all designed to spike your blood sugar and clog your intestines.
If you are not familiar with Ezekiel Bread, it is a sprouted grain bread that is high in protein, fiber and minerals. Since the grains are sprouted, the unhealthy lectins are no longer present. (Lectins are sugar binding proteins that cause your cells to clump together) So enjoy this healthy and satisfying Bread Pudding as a dessert or for breakfast. Bon Appétit!
5 slices of Ezekiel Bread, cut up into cubes and place in a large bowl
Whisk the following ingredients together:
3 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
½ tsp. cloves
¼ tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla extract
4 organic eggs
4 Tbsp. Xylitol
Pour the liquid over the bread cubes and let sit for about 5 minutes
Oil a casserole dish with coconut oil.
Place the bread mixture in the casserole dish.
Sprinkle 1 cup organic raisins and 1 cup organic slivered almonds over the top
Bake covered at 350 F for about 45 minutes. Remove cover and bake for another 10-15 minutes, or until the center is done.
Dear Dr. V. This recipe caught my eye! My wonderful husband, who died of cancer in ’98, was from New Orleans and a wonderful chef as well as orthodontist. My 6 grown children, 5 daughters and 1 son, all love to cook as well as their spouses. I’m the only one who has time to research health info and I am so happy that I found you. I buy Ezekial bread and use only almond milk, sometimes coconut milk and I do keep coconut oil on hand. Our New Orleans family Bread Pudding uses only cream,butter, french bread and lots of Bourbon. I’m sure that this will be delicious too.
I’m having a diagnostic mammogram on Monday as a node showed up on a cat-scan of my lungs in my left breast. I had the scan following a bout of Asthmatic Bronchitis that showed questionable spot inlower lung but in comparisons with previous pics, was fine, due to scar tissue. I have always had Fibrocystic breasts but nothing has ever been a problem. I don’t know what to think about this node that appeared. My Internist is very conservative, however.
I hope you enjoy the Bread Pudding. Let me know what you think.
Feel free to email me directly if you have any concerns or questions about the result of your mammogram. If you have had fibrocystic issues, you are probably estrogen dominant and iodine deficient. You may want to consider testing your Estrogen Quotient and your Iodine levels.
Dear Dr. V.
Love your site! Thank You for it!
I look forward to trying this recipe. Just wondering the size of baking dish and how many it serves.
Thanks for your support and kind comments. I used a 9 X 11 glass dish and it had about 12 servings…I think. :>)
Xylitol replacement? Raw honey or molasses or maple syrup?
Hello Maggie! You can use Stevia as a replacement
Medjool dates! Soak them until soft and then blend them. I use dates to sweeten everything….even coconut whipped cream!
What is Xylitol?
Hello Dianne! Xylitol is a sugar-free sweetener that you can consider using. Stevia is another option.
