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.
