Vegan Bread Pudding
(inspired by this recipe)
two slices of whole wheat bread, crumbled
1/2 cup unsweetened original almond milk
stevia or no-calorie sweetener, to taste
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup raisins, unpacked
1 tbsp chopped almonds
1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Combine all ingredients in a shallow baking pan (I used a loaf pan) and stir well. Make sure the bread is covered evenly.
3. Bake for 15 minutes. Serve warm with a few dashes of cinnamon and ground flax seed.
Sugar: 10.9g (mostly from the raisins)
Some of you might find that the raisins are all you need to make this pudding sweet. Simply adjust the sweetness gradually by using stevia and taste test before setting the pan in the oven.
