Chocolate French Toast

If it takes a little chocolate to get your family to eat whole grain bread, this is the way - so no white bread allowed! It’s basically a sandwich with chocolate in between two slices of French toast. Try to find a soft whole wheat bread with at least 3 grams of fiber per slice. I use Rudi’s Organic 100% Whole Wheat Bread. The darker the chocolate, the more health benefits. The chocolate will melt so you don’t need any syrup, just a little powdered sugar on top if you like. - Jenny Jones

Chocolate French Toast


  • 4 slices 100% whole wheat bread
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup 1% milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (or 1 1/2 oz. dark chocolate pieces)
  • 1 teaspoon oil for greasing pan (olive or canola)


  1. In a large flat-bottom bowl or a pie pan, whisk together the eggs, milk and vanilla.
  2. Soak bread slices in pairs, turning once.
  3. Heat a large pan over medium-high heat. Add a teaspoon of oil and cook bread on one side in pairs. After 2 minutes, when bottom is golden brown, flip one slice over, top with 2 tablespoons chocolate pieces, and top with the cooked side of the 2nd slice. In other words, you’re putting the two browned (& hot) sides together with chocolate in between, like a chocolate sandwich.
  4. When the sandwich is brown on the bottom, carefully turn it over and brown the other side.
  5. Serve plain or with a little powdered sugar. No syrup is needed.

    Made these french toast this morning, with my whole wheat home made bread.. and I barely used the sugar.. DELICIOUSSSS!!! I also added some turmeric (great anti inflammatory and cancer fighter) and cinnamon (regulates the sugar level in the blood) to make them even healthier 🙂
