Plantain (No) Bread Pudding

Plaintain (No) Bread Pudding, Lake Superior Kitchen, grain free, paleo

I love the changing of seasons, especially the move from summer into fall.  It gives me so much motivation to reflect on how I have been living for the past season and how I want to move forward in the coming season.  B and I made a lot of good changes in our lives in the past year.  Most of the changes started by reading the book The Compound Effect.  It is about all the little choices and actions we take during the day that have long term effects, whether good and bad.  It’s been about a year since we read the book, so this seems like an especially good time to reflect on what we are doing well and what should change in our daily lives.  I want to increase my intentionality in relationships.  I’m just enough of an introvert that it’s way too easy to stay home alone drinking tea.  During the upcoming fall season, I am going to focus on growing my healthy relationships even more.

I realized this week that I posted this recipe for Plantain (No) Bread Pudding on Instagram a long time ago, but never on the blog!  It’s a really fun, easy recipe.  It can be dessert or even breakfast.  I may have had it for dessert last night and breakfast this morning. :). I use very ripe plantains for this recipe, not green.
