This decadent dessert requires minimal prep time and little kitchen talent. The whole grain bread adds fiber; the soy, eggs and PB have protein, the dark chocolate has antioxidants, and the PB also has some healthy fats. A quick and easy dessert that won’t pack on the pounds (as long as you don’t eat it all yourself!).

*I used Whole Foods Old World Muesli bread, just because it was getting old and I needed to use it before it went stale!

**Vanilla or plain soy milk will work just as well, I used chocolate because that’s what was in the fridge!

You can enjoy it warm out of the oven, but I like it best after refrigerating for a few hours!
