Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New year, came and went this year, as it typically does. Traditionally, on this holiday, we eat sweet things like apples and honey and challah to celebrate a sweet year ahead. This is truly one of my favorite holidays for the sheer anticipation of the year to come, and of course, food.
One of the best parts about the food that is eaten during this holiday is the challah bread. Challah bread is made with extra fat and is enriched, which is different than typical bread. Challah bread is sweeter, smoother, and a perfect bread for breakfast, aka these french toast bites. I usually make classic french toast with leftover challah, but I wanted to make this one a little more fun, and kid friendly!
Plain and simple: a french toast bite is like a french toast stick, cut into smaller pieces and can quite literally be eaten in one (mayyyybe two) bites. French toast is my favorite breakfast to make and to eat, so why not make my favorite breakfast into bite sized morsels, and flavor them with applie pie spices and dip in honey? GENIUS!
Having challah in your house really is one of the best leftovers you could ask for. It's a versatile bread that can be used for a variety of different things:

Directions for making these apple pie challah french toast bites is the same as making french toast like you normally would:
Of course, like all of my recipes, I like to make sure I address some common questions that might come up, and offer some swaps for my readers and friends that follow different dietary guidelines.
Yes! Absolutely! If you want to use almond, oat, or even coconut milk, by all means do so!
While I can't tell you where to buy a gluten free challah near you, you can certainly google and search bakeries that carry it. A gluten free challah will work just fine here. If you want to attempt to buy yourself, you can look into this one.
