Controlling your food habits when you have diabetes can be quite a task. Very often most of the regular recipes cannot be used, or taste very bland when you replace the contraband ingredients with appropriate ones. So, figuring out what to have can be quite annoying. But there are some recipes out there that allow you to have both tasty as well as healthy food, like this incredible Bread Pudding.
This dish takes just about 45 minutes of prep and cooking time and is quite easy to make. The ingredients that are used in this dish include:
- 1-2 slices of French bread or challah
- 4 tablespoons of dried blueberries or golden raisins
- 1 egg or Quarter cup of egg substitute
- 2/3 cup of non-fat milk
- 3 tablespoons of brown sugar or 1.5 tablespoon of Splenda’s brown sugar
- ½ teaspoon of vanilla
- ¾ teaspoon of ground cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon of butter
Begin by spraying 2 ramekins of 6-7 oz with non-stick spray and preheat the oven to about 350 degrees. Cut the bread in cubes and place them in the ramekins along with the blueberries or raisins. Beat together, in a small dish, the brown sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, milk, and egg or the egg substitute, along with enough salt. Once mixed, pour this out evenly into the ramekins and on top of the cubed bread and drizzle some melted butter on top. Place them into the oven on cookie sheets and allow them to bake for around 30 minutes. You can check by inserting a knife or toothpick near the center, and if it comes clean, you can know that it has been completely baked.
