Miniature Apple Bread Puddings


2012/09/15 by nikkiledford

Why have I called it “Miniature” instead of “mini”? I don’t know. Just felt like I wanted to use the entire word today. It really rolls off the tongue.

Served with some almond butter!

Another experiment out of the Practical Paleo book by  Diane Sanfilippo. These little beauties are my contribution to a weekend birthday brunch. They are not very sweet (good for us lo-carb folks) but they are moist and yummy! Especially with a pad of butter or coconut oil smothered in the middle! In her book, Diane calls these Apple Streusel Egg Muffins. But the second I took a bite, my first thought was BREAD PUDDING! They’re fluffy and light. I think they would also be great with some sort of coconut milk glaze-like drizzle thing. But we’ll get there another day.

Mine looked exactly the same!

I changed up the recipe a bit… little bit more of this and that. Enjoy!

Miniature Apple Bread Puddings

3 large green apples, diced small
3 Tbsp. warm water
2 tsp. cinnamon, divided
2 tsp. ground ginger, divided
2 Tbsp. coconut oil
9 eggs
3 Tbsp. coconut milk
3 Tbsp. coconut flour
1/4 c. shredded coconut
1/4 tsp. baking soda
pinch of sea salt

  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. In a medium skillet, saute apples, water, 1 tsp. cinnamon, and 1 tsp. ginger until soft and mushy. Put in fridge to cool.

    The cooked apples, cool down time.

  3. In a medium bowl, whisk eggs, milk, oil, flour, baking soda, spices, coconut, and salt. Fold in 3/4 of the apples.


  4. Pour batter into muffin cups and top with remaining apple mixture.

    Bakey Bakey

  5. Bake for about 35 mins.

PUMPKIN FIG OATS //Caught some morning light on my morning bowl of goodness. I made this last week and it was so good (and loved by my child) that I made another batch! I don't know if it's the figs or golden raisins, the coconut milk or the collagen, or maybe it's the banana and the pumpkin that make this bowl of oats absolutely satisfying for a day of leading, teaching, cooking, sweating, loving, and seeking. 
#sometimesibreakfast #sometimesidont #glutenfreeoats #notpaleo #dairyfreeoats INGREDIENTS // one of my favorite activities is going out for coffee. For me, the sights, sounds, and smells of a coffee shop signal rest and I enter into a state of slowing down, more observing and less doing. Lately, I haven't been out to coffee too often because 1. It's expensive and 2. I don't tolerate dairy and I'm not much of a black coffee drinker so at most shops I'm limited to their dairy-free options. While it's nice to have nut milks available, I have discovered that all the other ingredients in these alternative drinks do NOT do my body any good. 
A solution to would be to bring my own homemade milk, but I don't always have some ready or I forget to put a bit in a small container (which then gives me the fun task of toting around a dirty jar in my car all day). These smaller bottles of almond milk are perfect for adding to my coffee when I'm out as most dairy-free milks come in huge cartons and are inconvenient for a coffee outing.  @popandbottle only uses basic, real food ingredients for their almond milk. They even sweeten it with a bit of date! 
I like to think that I always have a choice about what I put in my body. Sometimes I'll have to settle for black coffee, but if I plan a bit, I can still enjoy my coffee outings without ultimately compromising on what is best for me in the long run. SNACKS // kept it really simple today during meal prep. This is a tasty bowl of yams, banana, almond butter, and coconut flakes. FAST FOOD// Roasted all these veggies last night for a tasty quick lunch. Added a new find from Whole Foods. @goodlovinfoods lemon garlic dip. If you like bitchen sauce, you'll like this (!! bonus, they don't use any soy ingredients either !!)
