Bread Pudding

One loaf  “Ezekiel 4:9” sprouted grain cinnamon/raisin bread.

4 cups almond milk

4 organic eggs

1/2 cup coconut palm sugar or other natural sugar

(optional) use Stevia instead of sugar

1 tsp 100% pure vanilla

Palm oil, for greasing the pan

1.  Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease bottom of a 9 X 15 inch pan with palm oil.  Tear bread into 1-2 inch pieces and place in pan.

2.  In a large bowl, whisk milk, eggs, coconut palm sugar and vanilla until thoroughly blended.  Use Stevia for additional sweeteness, according to your tastes.

( Stevia has a delayed sweeteness, so by adding a small amount of coconut palm sugar you can increase the initial sweeteness using a sugar that has a low glycemic index.  

Once the coconut palm sugar “wears off,” the Stevia takes over with your taste buds!)

3.  Pour milk on top of bread.  Using a wide spatula, press all the bread pieces down to allow each piece to be saturated thoroughly.  Bake for 40-50 minutes, or until the top starts to look slightly browned.

Serve warm or chilled.  Keeps chilled for about one day.
