Carrot, Pineapple and Banana Bread Pudding (Hummingbird inspired)

Another bread pudding recipe this way comes. But this time, it’s summery and sweet with tropical fruits and bananas! Lots of bananas and carrots.

Packed full of fruit and vegetables, this is a perfect treat for dessert or a sweet breakfast.

Summer is finally done with exams and now I am free for the summer and looking forward to relaxing rather than studying. The weather is beautiful outside and it’s definitely shorts and tanning weather.

Inspired by a hummingbird cake, I tried to lighten up this bread pudding and give it a good dose of vitamin A and nutrients from the carrots.

You can replace the eggs with flax eggs if desired, however I haven’t tried this myself and cannot vouch for the results.
