1. Apple pecan bread pudding
This bread pudding features whole grain bread for extra fiber and is sweetened with applesauce instead of sugar. It’s loaded with real fruit from the diced apple and dried cranberries and healthy fats and fiber from the pecans. Compared to other nuts, pecans are highest in gamma-tocepherols, a type of vitamin E that could boost heart health.
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
4 eggs, lightly beaten
1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
1/2 Tbsp nutmeg
6 slices whole grain bread, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 sweet apple such as Gala, cored and diced
½ cup dried cranberries, unsweetened if possible
½ cup pecan pieces
- In a large bowl, combine the applesauce, almond milk, eggs and spices. Stir in the bread, apple, cranberries and pecans.
- Pour the ingredients into a baking dish. Cover with plastic wrap and leave in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to allow the bread to absorb all of the flavors.
- Preheat your oven to 350F. Bake your bread pudding for about 45 minutes or until it’s golden brown.
