  • 1 tbsp butter for greasing pan
  • 1 loaf crusty whole grain bread
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup milk I used unsweetened almond
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon lemon extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cardamom
  • ¾ cup stevia baking blend or granulated sweetener of choice*
  • ¼ cup dark brown sugar
  • juice and zest of one large lemon
  • pinch of salt

Lemon Greek Yogurt Glaze

  • ½ cup low-fat Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk I used unsweetened almond


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a 9x13 baking dish with butter and set aside.
  • With a serrated knife, cube your crusty whole grain bread and add to the baking dish. About an inch or so in size is perfect.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, Greek yogurt, milk, extracts, stevia or granulated sweetener of choice, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cardamon, lemon juice, lemon zest and salt until fully combined. Pour custard mixture over bread, making sure all bread gets coated.
  • Sprinkle bread pudding with coarse sugar and chopped walnuts (optional). Bake bread pudding in preheated oven for 40-50 minutes, until center is set but still a bit jiggly. Allow bread pudding to cool for about 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together Greek yogurt, powdered sugar, lemon juice and milk until combined. Drizzle glaze over bread pudding and garnish with lemon zest. Enjoy warm or at room temperature.


*Be sure your sweetener has a one to one replacement ratio with sugar. See blog post above for other important notes.
