Peanut Butter Banana and Chocolate Bread and Butter Pudding (Vegan GF)

A rich, warming and delicious vegan bread and butter pudding with a homemade peanut butter custard, chunks of banana and melted chocolate. This easy dessert only requires 6 ingredients and minimal effort.

Nothing says British comfort food quite like a bread and butter pudding. Typically packed with dairy butter, cream and milk and gluten-containing bread, they’re not very vegan and gluten-free friendly. This recipe changes all of that! Not only is this Peanut Butter Banana and Chocolate Bread and Butter Pudding naturally vegan and gluten-free (I used a GF bread), but it is also really simple with more wholesome ingredients meaning it’s that much healthier, too.

Now, bread and butter pudding wouldn’t usually be my go-to dessert option, but this one has changed my mind. It’s not too heavy and stodgy like most puddings and is even better topped with some melting vegan vanilla ice cream…

Here’s what goes into this Peanut Butter Banana and Chocolate Bread and Butter Pudding:

  • Plant-based milk: you can use any, I usually prefer to use oat or almond in my baking.
  • Runny peanut butter: any will do but smooth is better. You could use almond butter if you don’t like peanuts or use tahini for a nut-free option.
  • Cornflour: this naturally thickens the milky mix. It’s like magic! After a few minutes of whisking over a gentle heat, you’ve suddenly got a really creamy vegan custard with 3 ingredients.
  • Bread: as mentioned, I used a GF bread. I first tried this with the Wholesome Vitality Loaf from GF-gurus Schar and it’s so delicious. I was so impressed with the bread! You can use any bread here and it doesn’t have to be gluten-free bread, either.
  • Banana: this turns so gooey and caramel-like in the pudding.
  • Chocolate: chunks of chocolate and few more on top means there is a piece of melting chocolate in every bite! It’s a classic flavour combination.

That’s all there is to it, the ingredients really are pretty minimal for such an impressive and comforting dessert. The method is also very simple:

  • Make the custard: warm together the milk and peanut butter until smooth then whisk in the cornflour and continue to heat and whisk for 8-10 minutes until thick and creamy. Be patient as it will turn thick and glossy.
  • Arrange the bread: within a greased dish, arrange triangles of bread in one layer.
  • Top with chocolate and banana: scatter a few over the first layer of bread.
  • Repeat: layer the bread, chocolate and banana until the dish is full.
  • Pour over the custard: allow the custard to cover all of the dessert and fill it to the edges.
  • Bake: until really golden and you’ll see it bubbling at the edges.

You could also serve this Peanut Butter Banana and Chocolate Bread and Butter Pudding on its own or with custard or vegan yoghurt, too. It’s hearty and comforting without being too heavy and rich. The caramel banana, melting chocolate and soft chunks of bread with the peanut butter custard work so well together!
