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.
