Paleo Chocolate Bread Pudding

Paleo Dark Chocolate Bread Pudding

Traditional bread pudding incorporates wheat bread, heavy cream and a generous amount of cane sugar and dark chocolate into a rich pudding. Could we accomplish a Paleo transformation of this rich dish?

Yes, we found that a few healthy substitutions yielded a gluten-free, dairy-free, low-sugar super dessert. We used Udi’s gluten-free, dairy-free baguettes in place of wheat brioche. Coconut milk and coconut cream more than sufficed for the heavy cream. Swerve was a perfect one-to-one substitution for the ample dose of pure white sugar in the original. Of course, we found that a mixture of Enjoy Life Mega Chunks and Mini Chips semi-sweet chocolate added the dairy, nut and soy free chocolate flavor we needed.
