By hungrygirl_lisa on Jul 17, 2012 10:00 AM in Recipes

It doesn't get much more decadent -- bread pudding flavored with peanut butter and studded with chocolate. And it just so happens to be guilt-free! Go ahead and indulge...

Ingredients

4 slices light bread  

3 tbsp. semi-sweet mini chocolate chips 


Hungry Girl Logo
1 1/3 cups light vanilla soymilk
(like the kind by Silk or 8th Continent)  

1/3 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute
(like Egg Beaters Original) 

3 tbsp. reduced-fat peanut butter 

2 1/2 tbsp. brown sugar (not packed) 

Dash salt 

Optional topping: Cool Whip Free or Fat Free Reddi-wip  

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a loaf pan with nonstick spray.

Lightly toast bread. Cut into 1/2-inch cubes, place in the pan, and sprinkle with chocolate chips.

In a blender, combine soymilk, egg substitute, peanut butter, brown sugar, and salt. Blend until smooth.

Pour mixture over bread cubes, making sure all the bread cubes are covered. Let stand for 5 minutes.

Bake until pudding is firm, 45 - 50 minutes.

Makes 4 servings

Sounds yummy... but I'll opt for the full-fat stuff... If you're gonna indulge for your tummy, might as well satisfy your brain, too, right?!?  : )

Choose to be blessed!! : )



Carbs make you fat.  Eating fat doesn't make you fat.  



Too many calories make you fat - it doesn't matter where they come from!

That having been said - different people have different reactions to different kinds of food. For some Carbs just make them want to eat more and more, so for them it is best to limit them. For other people fat will set off the eat til you explode urges.  For me it is things with too much salt in them that make me want to eat and eat and eat.

All things in moderation - keep your diet balanced so that you get all the nutrients you need, limit what you need to limit, but total denial can cause uncontrollable urges to eat way too much.

 



Haven't tried this yet, but why not make some substitutes that make sense and do not alter the taste. Looks to me there are plenty of carbs & fats to satisfy the mind & body.  Healthy eating is so in style, I like Hungry Girl!



Im a diabetic and am very excited about this recipe. May use different bread b/c of carbs. I can only have 45-60 per meal. Thanks,, more recipes like this please!



Substitutions may or may not alter the taste, but 'manipulated' food can only fool the tongue, not the brain. If your body is craving full fats (or salt... or carbs)  then a food manipulated to be 'low-whatever' will not send the signal to the brain that it's gotten what it needs... no signal, no satisfaction... no satisfaction, no end to the craving... that's why people binge. They're not giving their body what IT wants. That's why you can stuff yourself silly with a ton of diet foot and still be 'hungry'... (hmmmm.... no disrespect intended, but maybe that's why 'Hungry-girl' is always 'hungry'). Like sunnim said... Moderation really is the ONLY key...



Guilt free? 

PER SERVING (1/4th of bread pudding, about 1 heaping cup): 225 calories, 8.5g fat, 294mg sodium, 30g carbs, 4g fiber, 15.5g sugars, 10g protein. And what kinds of fat are listed - could be poly, mono, or not so good fats.

I don't know about you guys,  but I would probably indulge in more than just one cup - maybe 1.5 - so the numbers are even bigger.  Definitely not guilt- free for me!  But it does sound delicious.



How about a bread pudding recipe without peanut butter and chocolate, just like Mom's only with soy milk, etc.  Anyone have one.



No, actually, it does matter a whole heck of a lot where the calories come from.  To put it simply, insulin is how your body creates fat.  Insulin is produced by high blood sugar.  High blood sugar happens when you eat carbs.  If you limit your carb intake, you limit your insulin production, which limits carbs being converted to fat.  This has been shown in many scientific studies.  I don't know why this is not common knowledge yet.  I don't know why high carb, low fat food is being touted as "diet" food.  It is actually quite the opposite.

I suppose you could use blueberries or apple instead of peanut butter & chocolate.
