Peanut Butter Berry Bread Pudding

I was inspired to make a PBJ type bread pudding using some of the fresh berries we have in the house, so I took the rest of the Peanut Butter Bread I had from the other day, and I cubed it to make this yummy Bread Pudding.

Peanut Butter Berry Bread Pudding
Gluten Free, Refined, Sugar Free, Dairy Free
Makes 4-6 Servings (See Nutrition Facts Below)

  • 1/2 Loaf Peanut Butter Bread (Cubed)
  • 1/2- 1 Cup Mixed Berries (I used Raspberries and Blackberries)*
  • 1/2 Cup Egg Beaters (or 2 Eggs)
  • 1/2 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 3/4 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract
*You can use whatever berries you'd like, but since my favorite type of jelly is raspberry or blackberry I decided to make this bread pudding using fresh raspberries and blackberries.  

  1. Grease a small/medium glass baking dish. 
  2. Cube bread and gently mix with the berries berries. Place evenly in the baking dish.
  3. In a bowl mix eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg until well combined. **
  4. Pour mixture over bread cubes and berries. Gently press bread down so that it is evenly covered by the mixture.
  5. Let sit for at least 30 minutes so the bread can soak up the milk mixture. If you wish, you can cover and put it in the refrigerator overnight.
  6. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  7. If you put the bread pudding in the refrigerator, take it out and let it come to room temperature.
  8. Bake for 30-45 minutes or until golden brown and no-longer wet.
  9. Let cool for a few minutes before slicing.

Serving Suggestions:
Fresh Berries + Whipped Cream

Drizzle melted Peanut Butter + your Favorite Fruit Spread over the top
Sliced Banana

**For an even more intense berry flavor, blend half of the berries into the milk and egg mixture before pouring over the bread cubes.
