How To Make Chocolate Chip French Toast Bites

Scoop the bread mix into the muffin cups, adding a sprinkle of mini chocolate chips for that extra chocolatey goodness.

Bake for 20-25 minutes and voila! Your French toast muffins are ready.

Variations & Substitutions


  1. Fruit Infusion: Add diced fruits like apples, bananas, strawberries, or blueberries to the batter for a fruity twist. You could also layer in fruit preserves or compote.
  2. Nutty Addition: Incorporate chopped nuts such as walnuts, almonds, or pecans into the mixture for a crunchy texture.
  3. Spice It Up: Experiment with spices like nutmeg, allspice, or pumpkin spice for a warm, aromatic flavor.
  4. Chocolate Variety: Use different types of chocolate such as white chocolate, milk chocolate, or dark chocolate chunks. Chocolate chips can also be substituted with peanut butter chips or butterscotch chips.
  5. Toppings Galore: Before serving, top your muffins with whipped cream, a drizzle of maple syrup, or a sprinkle of powdered sugar for added sweetness.
  6. Savory Twist: For a savory version, omit the sugar and chocolate chips. Add cooked bacon bits, cheese, and green onions.


  1. Bread Alternatives: If Canyon Bakehouse Hawaiian Sweet bread is unavailable, substitute with any sweet, dense bread like brioche or challah. Gluten-free options can also be used.
  2. Dairy-Free Options: Replace regular milk with almond, soy, or oat milk. Use dairy-free chocolate chips and a butter substitute like margarine or coconut oil.
  3. Egg-Free Adaptation: For an egg-free version, consider using flax eggs (1 tablespoon ground flaxseed mixed with 3 tablespoons water per egg) or a commercial egg replacer.
  4. Sugar Adjustments: If you want to reduce the sugar content, you can decrease the amount of sugar or use a sugar substitute like Stevia or monk fruit sweetener.
  5. Cocoa Addition: For an extra chocolatey flavor, add a tablespoon of cocoa powder to the batter.
  6. Milk Alternatives: If you don’t have or prefer not to use cow’s milk, any plant-based milk will work as a great substitute.
