Ingredients

    Recipe by Kathy Hester from Vegan Slow Cooking for Two or Just You

    soy-free, gluten-free option*, oil-free option**

    2 cups (60 g) stale whole-wheat bread (*use gluten-free)
    1 1/2 cups (225 g) peeled minced apple
    1/2 to 1 cup (120 to 235 ml) nondairy milk, as needed
    2 tablespoons (28 ml) apple brandy, optional
    1 tablespoon (7 g) ground flaxseeds mixed with 2 tablespoons (28 ml) warm water
    1/4 cup (50 g) sugar or 1/2 teaspoon stevia (or sweetener of your choice, to taste)
    1/3 cup (40 g) chopped nuts (walnuts, pecans, etc.)
    1/4 cup (44 g) minced vegan chocolate chips

Tips

Bread pudding is never going to win a beauty contest, but this one is moist and flecked with nuts and chocolate. The apple brandy adds to the complex flavor of this delicious dessert.

This recipe, like some of the others in this chapter, begs for seasonal fruit. Try a berry bread pudding or peach and pecan with a little bourbon; the list goes on and on.

Directions

Oil your slow cooker crock or **line with parchment paper to make recipe oil-free. Soak the bread in a large bowl with the apples, 1/2 cup (120 ml) of the milk, apple brandy, flaxseed mixture, and sweetener for about 10 minutes. Add up to 1/2 cup (120 ml) more nondairy milk if the mixture is too dry.
Mix in the nuts and chocolate and then scrape the entire mixture into the slow cooker. Cook on high for 1 to 2 hours.

Serving Size: 4 servings
