Vegan Apple Pie Bread Pudding is a delectable twist on the classic dessert, combining the comforting flavors of apple pie with the rich and satisfying texture of bread pudding. The recipe begins by melding cubes of day-old, hearty bread with diced apples and sweet raisins. A luscious blend of unsweetened almond milk, maple syrup, melted coconut oil, vanilla extract, and warm spices like cinnamon and nutmeg is then poured over the mixture, allowing the bread to soak up the flavorful liquid. As the bread absorbs these delightful ingredients, it transforms into a sumptuous base for the dessert.

The addition of a homemade apple pie filling elevates this vegan delight to another level. Thinly sliced apples are gently cooked with lemon juice, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg until they reach a perfect balance of sweetness and spice. This apple pie filling is then incorporated into the bread mixture, creating pockets of tender, spiced apples throughout the pudding. The result is a harmonious marriage of textures and flavors – the chewiness of the bread, the sweetness of the apples, and the warmth of the spices.

Baked to golden perfection, the Vegan Apple Pie Bread Pudding emerges from the oven as a comforting and indulgent dessert. Whether served on its own or accompanied by a dollop of vegan whipped cream or a scoop of dairy-free ice cream, this delightful treat is sure to satisfy both your sweet tooth and your desire for a cruelty-free, plant-based dessert option. Perfect for any occasion or as a comforting treat on a cozy evening, this vegan dessert is a testament to the versatility and deliciousness of plant-based cooking.



  • 4 cups of cubed day-old bread (preferably a hearty bread like French bread)
  • 2 cups of peeled and diced apples (such as Granny Smith or Honeycrisp)
  • 1 cup of raisins
  • 1 1/2 cups of unsweetened almond milk (or any other plant-based milk)
  • 1/2 cup of maple syrup or agave nectar
  • 1/4 cup of melted coconut oil or vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt

For the Apple Pie Filling:

  • 2 cups of peeled and thinly sliced apples
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cubed bread, diced apples, and raisins.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the almond milk, maple syrup, melted coconut oil, vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
  4. Pour the wet mixture over the bread mixture, ensuring that all the bread cubes are well-coated. Allow the mixture to sit for about 10 minutes, allowing the bread to absorb the liquid.
  5. While waiting, prepare the apple pie filling. In a saucepan, combine the thinly sliced apples, lemon juice, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Cook over medium heat until the apples are softened but not mushy. Set aside.
  6. Once the bread has absorbed the liquid, gently fold in the prepared apple pie filling.
  7. Transfer the mixture to a greased baking dish.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the pudding is set.
  9. Allow the vegan apple pie bread pudding to cool slightly before serving.
  10. Optionally, serve with a dollop of vegan whipped cream or a scoop of dairy-free ice cream.
