To keep your family healthy as well as happy this winter, try this stick-to-your ribs—but not to your waistline—apple dessert. Serve it right out of the slow cooker while it’s still warm and top with a small dollop of light whipped cream or a scoop of frozen vanilla yogurt.

Prep time: 30 minutes

Cook time: 2 hours, 30 minutes


  • 4 large eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 cups 1% milk
  • 2 teaspoons ground flaxseed
  • 1 teaspoon unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanille extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 8 slices cinnamon swirl bread cut into 1/2-inch cubes (about 2 cups)
  • 3/4 cup lightly toasted walnuts, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins


  1. Lightly oil or coat bottom and sides of a 5- or 6-quart slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray and set aside
  2. Combine eggs and brown sugar in a large bowl and whisk until blended. Whisk in milk, flaxseed, butter, vanilla, and nutmeg. Stir in bread cubes and mix well. Let stand at room temperature for 5 minutes until some of the liquid has been absorbed by the bread. Mix in apples, walnuts, and raisins.
  3. Place bread mixture in bowl of slow cooker. Cover and cook on low, about 2 1/2 hours, or until apples are tender and a knife inserted into the center of the pudding comes out clean.
