Why You Need To Make This Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding.

This bread pudding has chocolate in every bite. It’s basically a french toast casserole your whole family will enjoy. The bread is crispy on the top and spongy, moist and sweet in the center. I love to pour a little maple syrup over it for the ultimate flavor.

You can meal prep this or make it ahead of time. This bread pudding can feed an army. Easily make this dairy free and gluten free using plant based butter and milk an/or gluten free bread! Also try my EASY Nutella Puff Pastries for breakfast. Consider my Cranberry Orange Loaf for another sweet treat!

You can make this casserole into “french toast muffins” as seen on my Instagram as well. Just fill muffin liners about 1/2 full with mix and bake for about 25-30 minutes.

Recipe FAQ’s

Does it matter what type of milk I use?

No, not really. I have tried this recipe with almond, oat and soy milk and I have tried it with skim, and full fat milk. It all works pretty great 🙂

How do I make this gluten free?

Use a gluten free bread!

Can I make this egg free?

Unfortunately not. The eggs are an important part to the recipe.

Can I make these into muffins?

Yes! Instead of a casserole you can pour the batter into muffin liners and make french toast muffins as seen on my instagram! Cooking time will need to be shortened to about 25-30 minutes. See photo below
