Another favorite flavor combo going on here.

Plantains and figs = perfection.

We came up with this recipe idea a few weeks ago.

We love bread pudding for the rich, custardy base that can be used for both sweet and savory dishes. And we thought using plantain bread would be a perfect base for it.

Making it a grain-free bread pudding! A simple, healthier bread pudding recipe made from natural ingredients.

Not really sure how we think of some of our recipes, but they just pop in our heads. We go experiment in the kitchen. And fingers crossed if our ideas turn out ;)

Luckily for us…this one turned out phenomenal! Seriously. Gary even was like…wow this is really good.


All your need is some fresh figs chopped up. And sliced up plantain bread. Some fresh nutmeg which just completes it. Coconut milk and eggs.

Pretty darn easy if you ask us. Which we know you didn’t.

Beautifully balanced flavor in one dish.

This fig plantain bread pudding is best served warm and enjoyed anytime of the day.

Think of our love plantain bread just skyrocketed. If that is possible.

Love how easy plantain bread is to use in so many variety of recipes!

    This. Is. GENIUS! I can’t thank you girls enough. Figs and plantains may be my favourite (sweet) foods right now. And I’ve always loved bread pudding, I just never thought I’d have it again since going gluten-free! It’s a figgy miracle! ;D
