I’m exercising a little portion control with this individual bread pudding. 🙂 You can easily double or triple the recipe, or stick to one so you don’t overdo it.
If you’ve never had bread pudding, I think the name pretty much sums it up. It’s a bread based dessert and there is so much you can do with it.
My bread pudding recipe is pretty basic. I didn’t add too much to it, but you can add other ingredients to make it either sweet or savory.
There are a couple of things I did to lighten up this bread pudding recipe.
To start, I used bread that is only 1 point per slice. That saves a lot of points!
I did not use any butter, which is common in a lot of bread pudding recipes.
Instead, the “pudding” part of the recipe is just egg, almond milk, Splenda and vanilla extract.
The almond milk is much lower in points than the typical cream or whole milk that would be used in bread pudding.
I know not everyone likes to use Splenda, if you prefer using sugar just make sure you add the points.
The nice thing about Splenda and sugar is they convert to the same amount. 1 tablespoon of granulated Splenda is equal to 1 tablespoon of sugar.
I kept my bread pudding pretty simple and just added some fresh fruit to it. It’s a delicious, light dessert. I also like to add fat-free whipped cream.
This dessert is pretty low in points. I follow myWW blue, and this bread pudding is only 2 points.
It’s also 2 points for purple, and 4 points for green.
Give it a try! I hope you like it.
Yield: 1 serving (2 points for blue and purple, 4 points for green)
- 2 slices bread (use bread that is only 1 point per slice such as Sara Lee 45 calorie bread)
- 1 egg
- 5 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk
- 1 tablespoon granulated Splenda
- 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Cut bread into 1/2 inch pieces and add to a bowl.
Whisk together the egg, almond milk, Splenda and vanilla extract.
Pour the egg mixture over the bread. Stir to make sure all of the liquid is absorbed.
Spray a 10 oz. ramekin with no-stick cooking spray, then add the bread mixture.
Bake for 25 minutes. Enjoy!
