- 1/2 cup heavy cream (or full-fat coconut milk if dairy-free)
- 2/3 cup Swerve confectioners'-style sweetener or equivalent amount of powdered stevia or erythritol.
- 1 tsp vanilla extract (or seeds scraped from 1 vanilla bean-about 8 inches long)
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp fine sea salt
- 1 cup unsalted butter (or coconut oil if dairy free), softened

To make the bread, preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease an 11 x 7 inch baking dish.
Sift he protein powder and sweetener and set aside. In a large clean bowl, whip the eff whites until foamy (save the egg yolks for making ice cream.) Add the cream of tartar and continue to beat until the whites are very stiff (when sufficiently stiff, you will be able to turn the bowl upside down and the whites won't fall out). Add the vanilla, then quickly fold in the protein powder mixture and cinnamon.
Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish. Bake for 40 minutes, until golden brown. Let cool completely, preferably in the refrigerator overnight. When completely cool, cut the bread into 1-inch cubes and place them in a large mixing bowl.

In another bowl, combine the eggs, sweetener, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt; blend well. Pour the egg mixture over the soaked bread and stir to combine. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, until set. Let cool in the pan.
To make the glaze, place all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and process until smooth. Once the bread pudding is cool, cut it into 12 pieces and pour about 2 tablespoons of the glaze over each piece. Note: The glaze will separate if it sits out and gets too warm, if that happens, puree the glaze again until smooth.
Store extras in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat on a rimmed baking sheet in a preheated oven 350°F oven for 5 minutes or until warmed through.
