Deirdre says:


This is very good. I used 1.5 tsp Cinnamon as my husband really likes it. I also used Vanilla non dairy creamer. Next time I will break the bagles into tiny bits. But all in all.. It was VERY good

Luv bagel pudding, not as tasty as the real thing, but when you can't have the real things, it's great. Will make it often for my wife who has CKD.

I thought this was an easy delicious recipe. It was very chewy because of the bagels.
