Nothing says comfort food like some warm Banana Bread Pudding. Big chunks of bread baked in cream and sugar, topped off with some real whipped cream. Sounds delicious, right?
But, what if I told you that you can have the “skinny” version of this dessert and it tastes just as good?! You better believe it.
It’s all the things you love about banana bread but with some added goodness…like chocolate and walnuts. And what’s “skinny” about it? Well, for starters, I’ve used whole wheat bread instead of plain white bread. The nutrients in whole wheat bread is absorbed slowly, and therefore keeps you fuller, longer. Secondly, I’ve used low-fat milk and yogurt instead of the usual whole cream found in traditional bread pudding.
Mmmm…just look at that whipped cream melting all over. I told you this was comfort food.
The whole family enjoyed this dessert, especially the kids. And I love desserts that can be made in a large casserole dish, because that means leftover dessert! Do I dare say you could actually even make this for breakfast? *gasp* Yes, I think that would be amazing. You could top it off with some of the leftover vanilla yogurt instead of whipped cream.
