Bread Pudding Muffins


RANDOM UNITS WITH NO MEANING: 2
MAKES: 12 servings
CRISPY RATING: Neat idea for something different

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Skim Milk
  • 3 Large Egg Whites
  • 1 Tablespoon Light Butter, melted
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Cup Golden Raisins or Chocolate Chips
  • 9 Slices Weight Watchers Multi-grain Bread, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together milk, egg whites, melted butter, and vanilla. Stir in sugar and cinnamon until well blended.

3. Add the raisins (or chocolate chips) and bread and mix well. Allow to soak for 5 to 10 minutes.

4. Spray a muffin tin with nonstick spray very thoroughly. Mound the mixture into each of the 12 cups. Bake until firm and well browned, about 30 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for at least 10 minutes before removing muffins from the cups.


MY NOTES AND THOUGHTS:

They look so cute! They could use a nice sauce, but of course that will drive the calories up. I think they'd be great for a breakfast potluck. I'll let you know how they freeze and reheat.

I made 1/2 with raisins and 1/2 with chocolate chips. Prep the milk/sugar sauce, then divide it into two bowls. Add bread and raisins to one bowl, add bread and chocolate chips to the other.

I debated using paper muffin cups, but I think they have a nicer shape from the muffin tin directly, and they came out just fine.

This recipe is a composite of a couple recipes I've found on the WW board.
