Skinny Apple Pie Bread Pudding for Breakfast



I don’t know about you but sometimes I just want something sweet for breakfast.  Well, this homey bread pudding taste sweet and delicious and yet still pretty healthy.  It’s made with ingredients such as multi-grain or whole wheat bread, unsweetened applesauce, chopped apples, an egg, brown sugar and a little cinnamon.  Each serving has 198 calories, 2 grams of fat and 6 Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS.  It really does satisfy a morning sweet craving and taste equally yummy for dessert.  Something the whole family will enjoy!

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Bake Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients for Bread Pudding:

½ cup unsweetened applesauce

½ cup buttermilk or reduced-fat milk

¼ cup brown sugar, packed

1 large egg, I like using Egg-Land’s Best eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon cinnamon

3 slices mulit-grain or whole wheat bread, cubed, I love Milton’s multigrain

1 cup apple, peeled & chopped

Ingredients for Topping:

1 package sugar substitute such as Stevia, Truvia or Splenda

½ teaspoon cinnamon

Fat-free whipped cream or fat-free vanilla yogurt, optional


1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Coat 4 glass custard cups (6 ounce size, which are 4″ wide) or same size ramekin or small baking dishes with cooking spray, see shopping tip

2. In a large bowl, combine applesauce, milk, brown sugar, egg, vanilla extract and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Fold in bread cubes and chopped apple.

3. Let stand for 15 minutes or until bread is softened.

4. Pour into the 4 glass custard cups.  Mix together 1 package sugar substitute of your choice and ½ teaspoon cinnamon.  Sprinkle a little on top of each. Place the 4 custard cups on a baking pan. Bake, uncovered, for 35-40 minutes until golden brown.

5. Serve warm.  Dollop with a little whipped cream or yogurt on top, if desired.  Refrigerate leftovers.

Makes 4 servings (each serving, 1 custard cup full of bread pudding)

Shopping Tip

Clear glass custard cups are not only perfect for desserts but also come in handy when using different ingredients while cooking and baking. You can buy them in places such as Target and Bed, Bath and Beyond. They are available in a variety of sizes. I’m using the 6 ounce size which are 4″ wide, for this recipe.

  5. Bethany C. Says:

    Great recipe! Do you think you could make this into one larger casserole? Like in an 8×8 glass dish or something? Thanks.

  6. admin Says:

    Bethany I’ve only made it in the custard cups but I do think you could bake the entire recipe in an 8″ glass dish. Be sure to coat it first with cooking spray. The bake time should still be about same. Once baked, cut into 4 serving. Hope you like it. I’d love to hear how it turned out!

    I ran the apple bread pudding through the weight watchers meal builder and I got 12 points for the whole recipe. That means 3 PP for each serving (4 servings per recipe).

    Thanks for your feedback Angel. Hmmm…Not sure why my points plus were higher than yours.
