I just adore bread pudding! But I do not like all the calories and fat that a traditional recipe provides. This is a healthier version that is easy to make and is packed with delicious flavors! I selected ingredients that I typically have in my pantry so I would only have to purchase the cinnamon bread and apples. Typically, I have a container of egg substitute in our freezer and I always have skim milk. Each serving is about 250 calories and 6.5 grams of fat. I hope you enjoy my spin on bread pudding where reducing calories and fat does not mean compromising flavor!

You can eliminate butter and heavy cream if you use skim milk and add spices plus other tasty ingredients. The key is to have the correct ratio of wet to dry ingredients. You can try different types of nuts, apples, and morsel chips to experiment with flavors.
