This recipe came about because of some whole grain Mini Bagels that were given to me, & I hadn't used them.

Having a sweet tooth but not wanting to go over board,SINCE I AM WATCHING WHAT I EAT, I decided to make a healthier type bread pudding using a Splenda type sweetner called NATURA TASTE GOLD with zero calories.

I used whole grain mini bagels, plumped raisins, and a few spices, and it tasted great, and had 4 grams of fiber per serving. You may like it too. My husband had 2 larger than average servings, which he can afford since he is not trying to loose weight.
