The fall season is upon us, and we love nothing more than the aroma of bread pudding, filling the house with hints of cinnamon. This recipe will satisfy your sweet tooth in autumnal fashion, but without the refined and processed sugars and flours found in traditional recipes. Sweetened with raw honey, and flavored with the superfood spice, cinnamon, this bread pudding is healthful and wholesome. Plus, it’s packed with protein from egg whites and fiber from pecans and whole grain bread.
