The flavors of autumn in a healthy, easy bread pudding!

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.

  1. Looks amazing. Do you think I can make this ahead of time? I have a work breakfast coming up but I don't want to wake up 4:30 in the morning to make this 🙂

    1. Shan, It's always better when eaten fresh. You could put it all together and put the insert in the slow cooker at 4:30…then head back to bed! 🙂

  2. I made this last night and it is delicious! I am just curious though, what do you consider a serving size for this / how many servings does it make?

    Thank you!

  3. There is nothing like a dessert that cooks itself!! I love this dessert for fall. Cinnamon and pecans?!?! Two of my favorite things. Plus my hubby likes it. Perfection!

  4. Just wondering, my family's recipe that has been handed down through the generations is put together the 12-24 hours before, and then baked the next day. Could you do this with this recipe? It'd be so much easier to put together and put in the fridge, then stick the insert in the crock in the morning.

    1. Melissa, Yes I do. I bought them about 10 years ago at a cake decorating store. The store has since closed down.
      I’ve tried to find a few more of them to add to my collection, but haven’t had any luck. 🙁
