You would think that there is no such thing as a healthy bread recipe. After all, most people on a diet (especially if they are on a strictly low-carb diet such as Atkins’) avoid bread like the plague. And, why not? Bread contains a whole bunch of unwanted carbs and calories which really does nothing for your bulging waistline. So bottom line, people stay away from bread.
But what if I told you that a healthy recipe for bread is actually possible? What if I said that you can get the delicious, softness of a loaf of bread and the creaminess of a custard like pudding at one go and just consume about 200 calories? You would laugh in my face right? Well here I am with a healthy and delicious bread recipe, to prove you wrong, yet again! Eat this yummy bread pudding for breakfast to have a wholesome and nutritious meal.
