Apple & Sweet Potato ‘Bread Pudding’

I had the idea for this recipe circulating in my head for a while and I am SO glad I finally made it. Yum. Slightly sweet with custard-like egg filling, this has become my go-to breakfast for the week. It’s also paleo, Whole30 compliant and gluten free as always  – but if you’re feeding a crowd all that matters is it’s good! The recipe makes a large baking dish worth (about 8-10 servings) so you can prep it ahead and enjoy it for days. I’d also argue this makes a great afternoon snack – a kick of protein and carbs with some healthy fats to power you through until dinner.  In addition, if you want to get creative, bake this in muffin cups for an even easier way to take it on the go. Enjoy!
