Low Calorie Bread Pudding

This Low Calorie Bread Pudding is just 115 calories, and I boosted the protein with a low calorie salted caramel apple glaze! So you’ll get 7.1g of protein per serving. I did supply a low calorie bread recipe, but this can be made with any bread on hand, including leftover rolls and bread from holiday gatherings.
