Chocolate Banana Bread Pudding

Opening the freezer today I saw that there were about 10 bread bags with 2 end pieces in each. I laughed, knowing that Rob used them to 'test' spaghetti sauce, but this was a little much! Grabbing all of the bags, except one, I quickly planned the dessert for the night.

What a great dessert! Nothing should ever go to waste and here's a perfect use for those ends.


4 cups diced bread (you can mix any types together)
1/3 cup sugar
3 cups nonfat milk
6 egg whites
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup chocolate chips
one medium very ripe banana

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Use non-stick spray on a 9x9 pan. Spread diced bread in pan.

Mash banana, add sugar, milk, vanilla, egg whites, chocolate chips and mix thoroughly. Pour custard mixture over bread.

Press down on bread so that each pieces gets the custard mixture on it.

Bake for 35 minutes checking to be sure that chocolate does not scorch.

Cut into individual portions and serve warm with ice cream, fresh berries or alone!

Serves 9 generous portions.
