A few weekends ago I was prepping for one of our Facebook Live Weight Watchers Chats. We were going to be talking about desserts on this particular Sunday evening and I had surrounded myself with chocolate…and whipped toppings…and fluffs….and decadence. Even though I plan these to be WW friendly some days I struggle. Struggle to keep it to one serving. Or on this Sunday one bite. I had to taste test everything didn’t I?
It became immediately apparent that if one of the things I was making didn’t satisfy the chocolate, gooey, whipped topping frenzy going on in my brain a whole lotta unintentional eating was going to happen after our chat.
I can’t even tell you how it happened. Where it came from. But I took a break from the prep area and started doodling in my recipe book. My daughter made this for me last year because she knows how much I love colored pens and paper. Even with all the technology at our fingertips there is just something about felt tips on paper.
And it happened. Before I knew it I was slicing the heel left over in a bread bag. And some of the ingredients from other chat ideas were coming together. And this. Oh this. I’ve had it three times since and it just keeps getting better every time.
Cinnamon Chocolate Bread Pudding: 5 Weight Watchers Smart Points
- 1 slice Light bread (I’ve been using the heel off my White Wheat)
- 2 Tbsp Light Ricotta
- 1/2 cup unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk (or less if it’s too soggy your first try)
- 1 Tbsp Torani Sugar Free Caramel Syrup (or similar)
- 1 tsp Truvia Baking Blend
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 2 Tbsp Dark Chocolate Kodiak Cakes (or similar)
- 1 Tbsp Chocolate Dream Baking Chips (or similar but no more than 2 SP)
- Optional: 1 Tbsp Smuckers Caramel Sundae Syrup – add 1 SP
- Optional: 2 Tbsp Fat Free Whipped Topping – add 1 SP
- 1/4 cup Halo Top – add 1 SP
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a small oven safe dish with nonstick spray. In a small mixing bowl combine all ingredients except the bread and blend until fairly smooth with a fork. Cube or tear the bread into small pieces and add to the liquid mixture. Lightly mix and let sit for 15-20 minutes. Transfer to the oven safe dish and place in oven.
Remove from oven…it should be puffy and super hot. Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes and handle carefully, the baking dish is HOT. Resist the urge to pop a bite right in your mouth, the filling is HOT too!
The pudding is delicious all by itself but I highly recommend splurging and adding another point or two in caramel sundae syrup or whipped topping or Halo Top….trust me, you will satisfy whatever sweet tooth you had. My. Gosh. This. Is. Goooood.
