Classic Low-FODMAP Challah French Toast; Gluten-free and Dairy-free

Although this recipe has not been tested, a single serving should be low-FODMAP based on the ingredients.

Servings 3

Prep time: 30 minutes


  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup low-FODMAP lactose-free milk or dairy-free milk (I used almond milk)
  • 6 slices of low-FODMAP bread (I used my low-FODMAP maple egg bread)
    • I prefer a thicker gluten-free bread, but any bread will do
    • Sourdough bread (while not gluten-free) may be low-FODMAP if you use white wheat sourdough that has been fermented for 12 hours (ask your baker!)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of other flavoring if desired, such as caramel or maple
  • Olive, canola or other preferred oil for cooking (I used avocado oil, healthy and has a nice buttery flavor)
  • Garnish: confectioner’s sugar, maple syrup, low-FODMAP strawberry coulis or other desired toppings


  • Beat eggs and milk with vanilla and cinnamon in a shallow bowl

  • Dip bread in egg mixture and let the bread soak up the liquid
    • For a dense bread (like my maple egg bread), I let it sit for 3 minutes on each side
    • For a standard gluten-free sandwich bread, you will not want to soak very long as the bread can get quite mushy.  Dip the bread in the egg mixture and place on a different plate until it is absorbed well
  • Heat oil in skillet on medium heat
  • Place bread in skillet and cook each side until golden brown

  • Dust with confectioner’s sugar, or your preferred low-FODMAP syrup
  • Serve immediately

  1. French Toast perfection!

    This worked great! Flavorful and delicious. I used almond milk and put out some different toppings for people to choose their own – I enjoyed mine with maple syrup. Thanks!
