    Chocolate Chip Banana Challah French Toast Muffins

    Chocolate Chip Banana Challah French Toast Muffins made with deliciously healthy ingredientsChocolate Chip Banana Challah French Toast Muffins

    These muffins, oh my gosh. Melt-in-your-mouth Chocolate Chip Banana Challah French Toast Muffins. So delicious, so satisfying and way too easy to make.

    You may remember my French Toast Muffins and also my Challah French Toast Sticks, two of the most popular recipes on the blog. I am pretty sure it’s because they are too easy to make, it’s unreal.

    This recipe is combing these two gems, plus adding some sliced bananas and dark chocolate chips to make them even better.

    I’ve been noticing lately that many bloggers name their recipes “dairy free _______” or “gluten free & vegan _____” to help entice people who either prefer recipes for a certain diet type or have allergies to make their recipes. From time to time I do that as well if I think it fits the title, but I also think it’s beginning to be irrelevant to the recipe at times. Basically every recipe on here is dairy free, some gluten free and some vegan, and if they aren’t it is quite easy to substitute any of my ingredients to make them satisfy your needs. The one dietary title I want to dabble in is paleo. I love paleo food when I eat it (especially desserts) so I definitely want to learn about it since I think those recipes are harder to substitute things for.

    So what I am getting at is, I easily could’ve named these muffins “Dairy Free, Gluten Free friendly Chocolate Chip Banana Challah French Toast Muffins”, but that is a serious mouthful and not important. What’s important is that these muffins are easy to make and filled with chocolate, duh.

    What usually entices me to look at a recipe on another blog are the number ingredients or how long it takes to make it. Such as Easy 5-ingredient Salmon Meatballs or 3-ingredient Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter. The most intimidating part of a recipe can be the number of ingredients (if there are more than 10, you’ve lost me) or how long it will take us to make something.

    I guess my point here is, if you don’t see a specific dietary description in my recipe, don’t look the other way. Chances are, you can easily adapt any recipe to fit your needs.

    To make these dreamy Chocolate Chip Banana Challah French Toast Muffins you will need:

    Whole wheat challah rolls

    Almond milk


    Egg whites

    Vanilla extract



    Dark chocolate chips

    When i hear Challah or Brioche, I know that it is going to be good. Then you go and add chocolate chip and banana.

    Hi! I LOVE your blog and all your recipes! So Yum! I was wondering if you had to use the liquid egg whites, or if you could just substitute for 1-2 more eggs? I don’t normally use liquid egg whites, so I don’t have any but I totally want to try these now!

      Try 2-3 egg whites from eggs! You can easily separate them. I don’t recommend more full eggs!
