Superfood Challah French Toast

I love french toast, but it’s generally not the healthiest. So I started to experiment with a healthier variation and came up with an interesting concoction that has healthy ingredients and tastes great. A good boost for the immune system. Here’s the recipe for anyone interested. For more on healthy ingredients in general, refer to my paleovedic grocery list.


  • 4 1/4″-1/2″ pieces/slices Challah bread
  • 2 eggs (pasture raised)
  • coconut milk (keeps moisture, adds bit of flavor; also hemp or almond works)
  • cinnamon sugar
  • Himalayan pink salt
  • turmeric
  • black pepper (amplifies the benefits of the turmeric )
  • fresh nutmeg (optional, smells nice)
  • ginger powder (optional)
  • matcha powder (optional)
  • oil (coconut or avocado)


  • in a mixing bowl, mix 2 eggs
  • add coconut milk
  • mix in cinnamon sugar (~1 tsp) and pinch of salt (one or two turns of  the shaker)
  • add turmeric, black pepper
  • grind and add nutmeg if desired
  • add ginger powder (one or two pinches) if desired
  • add matcha if desired (light spoonful)
  • deeply soak challah in the batter so that it permeates through to the middle of the bread

Cook (Induction)

  • set cooktop to low-med heat (induction: 2)
  • add avocado oil to the pan (or substitute, coconut oil will add sweetness)
  • put bread in large skillet and cover (retains moisture to prevent drying out)
  • cook for 5 mins, flip, cook another 5 mins (should be light-medium brown)
  • for non-induction, repeat additional 5 mins on each side; still flip after 5 mins


  • cut up and add banana for banana french toast (tastes best if you heat lightly separately and add on to the french toast)
  • add elderberry syrup
