  • 8 cups whole wheat bread crumbs, torn into 1" cubes (whole wheat French bread was used in this recipe)
  • 1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips (Enjoy Life Chips are gluten, soy and dairy free)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Pinch of kosher or sea salt
  • 1/2 cup unrefined coconut palm sugar syrup, optional sucanat or Wild Flower honey
  • 1 cup diced pecans
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 cup low-fat milk
  • 1 cup canned lite coconut milk, optional almond milk or low-fat milk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Caramel Sauce
  • 1/3 cup unrefined coconut palm sugar, optional, 100% pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2/3 cup low-fat milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla


Lightly mist the inside of the slow cooker with non-stick spray.

Add bread cubes to the slow cooker. In a medium mixing bowl, combine chocolate chips, cocoa, coconut palm sugar, 3/4 cup pecans and salt. Add remaining ingredients and whisk until well combined. Pour mixture over bread and stir until all bread is moist. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup pecans on top, cover and cook on low 3 hours. Recommend 5-7 quart slow cooker.

Caramel Sauce: In a medium saucepan, combine coconut palm sugar and cornstarch. Add milk and cook over medium-low heat, or until desired thickness. Remove from heat, add vanilla and stir to combine. Drizzle sauce over warm bread pudding, about one tablespoon per serving.
