Vegan Banana Bread Pudding

Mmmhmmmm bread pudding on another rainy evening.
Hot bread drowning in bananas, almond milk, maple syrup, & spices?
Sign me and a plate up ASAP!

Vegan Banana Bread Pudding Ingredients

2 ripened bananas
2 cups unsweetened almond milk
2/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 teaspoon cinnamon (+ additional for sprinkling)
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
8 slices bread, pieced and chunky (I used wheat here)
turbinado sugar (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Dry, fresh bread waiting to be smothered in goodness.
Mix all the ingredients sans bread in a blender.
Pour over the bread chunks.
Let the bread have a relaxing soak in the pleasurable yummy drench for 5-10 good minutes.
Then it's off into the hot oven!
40 minutes later, all puffed and ready to be devoured. Slowly.
Topped with a bit of creamy chocolate avocado sauce and extra banana slices is the stuff dreams are made of!
Sometimes food can be an incredibly sensuous experience when indulged on nights calling for romance novels and teddy bear snuggle hour.
Was that too much information?
Well, anyway, the bread pudding a moist and delightfully custard-y dessert with that rich banana flavor (though it needs more) and light sweet crunch that the turbinado sugar provides, was perfect with that raw chocolate avocado sauce. Though I craved pecans like nobody's business, I liked it.
After so comforting leftover dinner, this was a very pleasing conclusion. :)

That black bean burger piled high with creamy cauliflower cheese sauce, juicy Roma tomatoes, ketchup, & crisp spinach. Yeah baby!
