Perhaps you think I've gone completely mad by suggesting a low carb bread pudding recipe? I have to say it isn't something that I thought I would ever be eating on a low carb diet, either! However I was recently given the opportunity to try Love the Taste Bread by Thin Slim Foods. They have several flavors: Plain, Honey, Cinnamon, Everything and Rye, and I chose cinnamon!
The bread is very good – lightly toasted, lashings of butter – perfect! And at only 1g net carb per slice – I'm completely sold!
UPDATE: If you're looking for regular low carb sandwich bread, check out my NEW guide to buying low carb bread online!
But as much as I like eating it the “normal” way, the slight sweetness of it made me think of bread pudding. So I came up with this recipe that needs just SIX ingredients and I just know that you're going to love it! Oh and if you're looking for a low carb bread and butter pudding (as it is more commonly known in the UK), this is VERY similar. A traditional recipe would have raisins in, but I think that chocolate chips make a great alternative! Update: If you think you'll miss the raisins, try adding a handful of my homemade low carb dried cranberries instead!
How to Make Low Carb Bread Pudding
Cut the bread into cubes and place them in a bowl. Pour some unsweetened almond milk and melted butter over the bread – you'll get an instant cinnamon aroma! Leave the bread to soak for ten minutes.
In a separate bowl, mix together eggs and low carb sweetener (Lakanto works well – I particularly like the golden version for this recipe).
Pour the egg mixture over the bread, and add some low carb chocolate chips – I use these mini ones from Lily's.
Spoon everything into a greased baking dish, and push the bread down so that it is in the liquid as much as possible.
Bake in a preheated oven for 30 minutes or until the egg mixture has set. It smells SO good while it is cooking!!! Let cool for five minutes, then serve.
This is a fantastic dessert to enjoy on a fall or winter's evening!
