Melted dark chocolate and baked bananas add a gooey decadence to classic bread pudding.

Ingredients

  • Butter for greasing
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 5 eggs
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 bananas, sliced
  • 8 cups day-old whole-grain bread, 
cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 cups dark-chocolate chips, divided
  • 1 can (14 oz) light coconut milk

Preparation

1. Heat oven to 375°F. Grease eight 8-oz ramekins with butter. In a bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, sugar, honey, nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla, and a pinch of salt.

2. Gently toss in bananas, bread, and 3/4 cup chocolate chips. Stir to moisten bread. Divide mixture between ramekins. Bake until pudding is set, about 30 minutes. Remove from oven.

3. In a small pot over medium-high heat, bring coconut milk to a simmer. Place remaining 11/4 cup chocolate chips in a second bowl; pour coconut milk over top. Cover bowl until chocolate melts, 3 minutes. Stir chocolate-milk mixture until smooth; spoon chocolate sauce over pudding just before serving.
