    Scented with warm spices like cinnamon, cloves and ginger, then sweetened with molasses and maple syrup, each bite is reminiscent of a delicious gingerbread cookie – minus the butter and sugar.

    1. We just had this for Christmas breakfast. I added blueberries and toasted walnuts. The flavor is On Point. My pudding didn’t get very thick but it was still tasty! Thanks for the recipe.
