Special Diet Notes & Options: Pumpkin Bread Pudding

By ingredients, this recipe is dairy-free / non-dairy, peanut-free, soy-free, tree nut-free, and vegetarian. Just be sure to choose your bread wisely.

For gluten-free and dairy-free pumpkin bread pudding, use your favorite gluten-free bread. It’s okay if it is a little stale, this allows it to soak up more moisture.

For an “unrefined” dairy-free pumpkin bread pudding, feel free to use coconut sugar or evaporated cane juice in place of the brown sugar. It helps if you pre-grind the sugar into a powder. Keep in mind, it will be a touch less sweet.
