Blueberry Bread Pudding

Blueberry Bread Pudding

I love blueberries.

And I love bread pudding.

So here’s a great recipe that uses whole grain bread, almond milk and maple syrup, and definitely think it’s a little bit more interesting. The end result? A soft, dessert dish that’s just as satisfying to the tastebuds as traditional bread pudding, but better for ya!

And you can choose to use fresh or frozen berries.
One tip if you use frozen blueberries: remove them from the freezer just before you add them to your batter. Doing so will give you the prettiest result because as the berries start to defrost, their color tends to bleed.

Ingredients

  • 8 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 2 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt (or Himalayan salt)
  • 8 slices low-sodium sprouted whole grain bread cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 4 cups fresh (or frozen) blueberries
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • Hot water

Instructions

  1. Combine eggs, almond milk, maple syrup, extract, nutmeg, and salt in a medium bowl; whisk to blend. Set aside.

  2. Place bread and blueberries in a 13 x 19-inch baking dish that is lightly covered in spray.

  3. Top with egg mixture; mix well to blend. Refrigerate, covered, for 30 minutes.

  4. Preheat oven to 350° F.

  5. Place baking dish in roasting pan. Add water to roasting pan to come an inch up the side of baking dish. (Baking dish will be sitting in water.) Tent aluminum foil over roasting pan so that foil does not touch bread pudding. Cut two slashes in foil to allow steam to escape. Bake for 35 minutes.

  6. Remove foil. Bake an additional 35 to 45 minutes, or until bread pudding is puffy and custard is set.

  7. Cut into eight pieces.
