Ready for a Chilly Weekend?
It's suppose to be another chilly February weekend and I don't know about you but our family likes to cozy up with a warm bowl of bread pudding in the evening (maybe with a little ice cream on top).
Last weekend our household decided to whip up a tray of bread pudding and we did it with a gnubee's twist... it was definitely a hit in our house! Plus, less guilt as we removed the heavy cream and substantially reduced the sugar by substituting our nutritious gnubees. Gnubees has less sugar than heavy cream and we reduced our go-to recipe from one cup of sugar to one tablespoon. You don't miss the sugar because the subtle fruit flavour provides all the sweetness you need!
7 - 10 slices of bread (we used whole wheat sourdough)
1/2 c raisins or chocolate chips *optional
2 pouches of gnubees (we did a combination of raspberry & banana gnubees but I recommend using all raspberry for that delightful chocolate/berry combination)
1 T brown sugar
1 t vanilla
2 T butter *melted
Preheat the oven to 350f
1) tear up bread slices and place in baking dish (we popped them in the toaster oven for 10mins to help them dry out a little)
2) combine eggs, gnubees, sugar & vanilla in bowl
3) lightly toss in the bread slices and if desired the optional chips (or raisins) into the gnubees mixture. Transfer into your baking dish
4) drizzle butter on top and place in the oven. Bake for 35-40 mins
5) enjoy and share
