A few weeks ago I was contacted by the fine folks at Pacific Foods to come up with a fun baked good for their new hemp milk. Now,  at first I was a little scared. Hemp milk? What do I know about baking with hemp milk? The answer was nothing if you are wondering.

However, after a quick phone conversation with my little vegan brother (he does have  a name, it’s Matt) the ideas started rolling. I first went to the idea of a bread pudding and I couldn’t get it out of my mind. Who doesn’t love bread pudding?

Now, there are about a million different flavor combinations you can use when making bread pudding but I settled on chocolate chunks and banana. A perfect combination. Plus, I decided to use croissants instead of regular bread. Croissants are the bomb. I could happily eat them every single day. Who’s with me?

Oh, and if chocolate, bananas and croissants weren’t enough I decided to make a hemp milk caramel too. You didn’t think I would let this bread pudding get eaten without getting a bath in caramel did you?

Needless to say after all this delicious I had to go run a few miles. Ha, I’m kidding. I don’t run unless I’m being chased. I laid down on the couch and decided this was a dessert success and thought about making it again.

Chocolat Chunk Banana Hemp Milk Bread Pudding with Hemp Milk Caramel

This chocolate chunk banana hemp milk bread pudding is packed full of sweet non-dairy flavor and the perfect use for all your ripe bananas. Hello dessert!

Yield: 6-8 servings

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour

Total Time: 1 hour 20 minutes

Ingredients:

For Bread Pudding:
2 cups vanilla unsweetened Pacific Foods hemp milk
4 large eggs
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla paste
2 large brown bananas (mashed)
8 large croissants (cubed)
1 cup dark chocolate chunks

For Hemp Milk Caramel:
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla hemp milk
2 tablespoons butter

Source: Adapted from Food.com and Tasty Kitchen.

Directions:

For Bread Pudding:

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl add hemp milk, eggs, brown sugar, vanilla paste and mashed bananas. Whisk until completely combined.

Add in cubed croissants and stir until combined. Pour in chocolate chunks, stir to combine and let mixture sit for at least 5 minutes to let the mixture soak into the croissants.

Divide mixture between gratin dishes. I used four 8 ounce dishes and they could have easily fed two people each. If you have small dishes that would make it a bit more single size.

Add dishes to a large casserole dish and pour water around the gratin dishes till the water is half way up the side of the dishes.

Bake for about an hour until a toothpick comes out clean.

Let bread pudding rest for a few minutes and then enjoy! This recipe is best enjoyed right out of the oven and while it's still warm.

For Hemp Milk Caramel:

In a large skillet add all ingredients and bring to a boil over medium heat.

Stir constantly until the sugar is melted.

Let cool slightly and drizzle over bread pudding.

Disclosure: I was compensated for my time from Pacific Foods and received non-dairy milk at no cost. However, as always all opinions are 100% my own.

    I still have never tried hemp milk before in my baking as a dairy substitute. I definitely must try it now!

    Yes, I have cooked and baked with non dairy milks. I actually now only drink almond and coconut milk, trying to reduce the dairy intake! Your bread pudding looks amazing, save me a slice!
