Healthier Challah French Toast with Caramelized Bananas

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I am a self-proclaimed carboholic, mainly due to my love of bread. As you guys should know by now, my healthy outlook is all about balance, and so even though I eat bread on a regular basis, I only eat healthy, whole-grain varieties.  Challah is my favorite bread of all time. When made correctly, challah is fluffy, light, and slightly sweet. In recent years, I’ve seen some grocery stores and bakeries start to sell whole wheat challah, and that’s exactly what I used in this Challah French Toast recipe.

Day-old bread is always best for challah french toast because it does a better job of soaking up the egg and milk mixture that you dip the slices in before cooking. Whole wheat challah and unrefined coconut sugar make this typically indulgent breakfast treat a little bit healthier than the traditional version.

The caramelized bananas add a key element of natural sweetness, so don’t skip this step!
