It’s our favorite spread for sweet crêpes, but Nutella also makes a luscious, unexpected filling for French toast. The key is using challah bread, cut thick and slit to create a pocket in the center of each slice. Fill that pocket with chocolate-hazelnut spread, and make French toast in the usual way. The result is warm, soft, and slightly crisp slices oozing deliciousness.


  1. 1 Heat the oven to 200°F and arrange a rack in the middle. Place a baking sheet in the oven.
  2. 2 Insert the blade of a paring knife through the top crust of a challah slice, forming a pocket in the center of the slice (take care not to pierce the bottom of the slice). Spread a scant 1 1/2 tablespoons of Nutella in the pocket, distributing it as evenly as you can around the sides of the pocket set aside. Repeat with the remaining slices.
  3. 3 Place the eggs, milk, vanilla, orange zest, and salt in a shallow dish (a 13-by-9-inch baking dish works well) and whisk until the eggs are broken up and evenly incorporated and the sugar has dissolved.
  4. 4 Melt the butter in a large cast iron or nonstick frying pan over medium heat until foaming, about 2 minutes. Dip a few slices of the bread in the milk mixture, turn to coat, and let the excess drip off. Lay the soaked bread in a single layer in the pan and cook until browned on the bottom, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  5. 5 Flip and cook the second side until browned, about 2 minutes. Place the cooked French toast on the heated baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining bread slices. Serve sprinkled with the hazelnuts and dusted with powdered sugar, if using. Pass maple syrup at the table.

Mother's Day Breakfast in Bed Nutella French Toast Recipe

Mother&aposs Day is right around the corner and we Mamas may not always admit it, but we are tired. Start her Mother&aposs Day off right by letting her sleep in and then bringing her breakfast in bed. Every Mom loves to be pampered once in a while and breakfast in bed is an easy and fun treat.

Brining Mom breakfast in bed is sure to make her smile this Mother&aposs Day. I can&apost think of a sweeter way to start her morning off right and let her know you appreciate all that she does.

Mother&aposs Day Breakfast in Bed

Whether its omelets or pancakes, coffee or tea, or maybe just a donut you picked up from the store and some of her favorite juice, load up a tray and surprise her in bed.

I&aposm a coffee lover myself. A french press makes a great presentation and then Mom can refill her cup as she pleases and start her day in a slow leisurely way.

Nutella French Toast

One of my favorite breakfast in bed recipes is this Nutella and Strawberry Stuff French Toast. They aren&apost too complicated but they make breakfast feel extra special. Cut your french toast into heart shapes, layer with Nutella and sliced strawberries, serve with some bacon or sausage and some fresh fruit. Kids will love layer the fruit and Nutella between the french toast hearts and helping carry their breakfast creation to Mom.

Serve her coffee (or tea) in a pretty mug that doubles as a Mother&aposs Day Gift. I love the monogram trend for mom. This colorful initial mug with a pretty spring design is the perfect personal touch.

S’mores French Toast

Most of the recipes on my blog are pretty sensible meals. But occasionally I have a brain implosion and I can’t help experimenting with some outrageously indulgent creations. This is one such creation! For breakfast or dessert, this is dangerously easy to make. It’s simply a a sandwich with Nutella and marshmallows, dipped in ordinary french toast egg mixture then pan fried until golden. Toppings are optional….ok, not really. You must!

I have a secret obsession with S’mores. Strange for an Aussie-Japanese who has never lived in the US. I was only introduced to S’mores last year, but ever since then, I’ve always had a stash of marshmallows in my pantry so I can get a S’mores fix in various forms whenever I get the urge – without a campfire. Typically, I just sandwich marshmallows between graham crackers with a piece of chocolate, wrap with foil and heat in the oven until the marshmallow and chocolate are melted. I have also been known to do this in the microwave. I’ve also experimented with S’mores Spring Rolls (didn’t work so great), S’mores Triangles (also a flop) and S’mores Burritos (not bad! Might share this another time), to name a few.

This is the most extreme S’mores fix in my rotation. I wish I could tell you it was secretly healthy or tell you it’s actually a power food, but sadly no. It’s just pure indulgence and there’s nothing healthy about it at all. But it is oh-so-enjoyable. It is so worth the calorie credits to consume a mouthful of this pile of S’mores heaven.

This is deceptively and dangerously easy to make. You simply smear Nutella on bread (generously), then sandwich it with halved marshmallows, dip in egg/milk mixture and cook it like normal french toast. Then because you’ve already blown your calorie credits you may as well go all out and top it with your favourite chocolate sauce and more marshmallows.

You’ve worked hard this week, go on, you deserve a treat this weekend!

We all love classic French Toast – but sometimes it’s nice to try something different!

How To Make Nutella French Toast Roll-Ups

  • The process is super simple. First, trim off the crust from each slice of bread. Then get a hold of a rolling pin and flatten the bread slices. No need to work out your frustrations here – the bread is pretty soft and no much effort is needed.
  • Spread each slice of bread with a layer of Nutella. Control the urge to eat everything that has Nutella on it.
  • Tightly roll each bread slice.
  • In a shallow bowl, whisk the milk, egg, sugar and vanilla extract and set aside. In a separate bowl mix the sugar and cinnamon.
  • Dip each Nutella French Toast Roll-Up into the milk and egg mixture. A quick dip is all you need! We don’t want to soak up too much of the liquid. Then saute each roll in melted butter until golden brown and slightly crispy. Remove from the pan and roll each roll-up in the cinnamon sugar.

By now, I can guarantee your kitchen smells amazing and you are more than ready to start eating (that is if you have not already taken a bite of a warm and sugary Nutella French Toast Roll-Up – I know they are hard to resist, as hard to resist as this Bacon Cooked in the Oven! Crispy and perfect every time!

These Nutella French Toast Roll-Ups are amazing by themselves or dunked into some warm maple syrup. Serve them with fresh berries for breakfast/brunch or as an appetizers at a children’s party.

Kathy’s Notes

  • You can make these roll-ups hours ahead. To reheat them, place them on a sheet pan and bake them in a 325 degrees oven for about 5-8 minutes or until warm.

Nutella® French toast recipe - Recipes

Submitted by: Jaclyn Endiafe

The search for the perfect french toast recipe is over. This chocolatey and healthy french toast is a must try.


2 slc. sprouted whole grain bread


Mix the almond butter with the cacao powder, and stir in half of the honey. To lighten the "Nutella" spread, add the Greek yogurt. Continue mixing until all four ingredients blend in nicely.

Spread a generous amount of the healthy "Nutella" on a slice of sprouted grain bread, and then sandwich with another slice of bread.

Prepare the egg mixture by mixing the whole eggs, vanilla extract, almond milk, and cinnamon. You can add nutmeg and allspice if you want, but it still tastes great without these.

Soak the "Nutella" sandwich in the egg mixture then put it in a hot non-stick pan (skip adding oil or butter). Fry this until it's brown, flip the sandwich and brown the other side. The goal is to make the outside brown and toasty, while the inside is smooth and creamy. Remove from the pan and cut into 3 slices.

Add mixed berries in the pan and cook until they are soft. Add the remaining honey, and mix well with the berries until they are well coated and they have soaked in the sweetness of the honey. Place the caramelized mixed berries on top of the french toast.

This is a superb french toast recipe that kids and kids at heart will surely enjoy! It's a chocolatey french toast indulgence without the guilt! )

Strawberry Nutella French Toast Roll Ups

If you have a sweet tooth, if your kids are hovering around or if you generally lack self control around food, you should stop reading now. I meant it. Don’t look at the photo of these Strawberry Nutella French Toast Roll Ups!

“This is how you justify having dessert for breakfast…”

The problem with these Strawberry Nutella French Toast Roll Ups is that they are way too easy to make. Because frankly, let’s not kid ourselves, these are not a normal breakfast by any stretch of the imagination. I made these in the morning to take photos and as I munched on them afterwards, all I could think was “damn, these are the best doughnuts ever”. The thought of them being breakfast never even occurred to me.

But, but, but…’s french toast! French toast is for breakfast!

Okaaaaay then….okay. So is this how you justify having dessert for breakfast?

This isn’t an original recipe I came up with. I’ve seen strawberry stuffed french toast roll ups “around”, but I have noticed that they all seem to use cream cheese rather than Nutella. I tried it with cream cheese, but I much prefer making these with Nutella because….well, Nutella vs cream cheese? Nutella wins, hands down, every single time.

It constantly amazes me that with a handful of ingredients you can whip up a breakfast like this in 15 minutes. Honestly, no matter how sketchy I’m feeling after a few too many wines the night before, I can still muster up the strength to make these. And after a few bites, I perk up considerably!

I know it’s tempting to head out for brunch on the weekend, but why not stay in and try these? Coffee refills are free, and brunch at home means you don’t have to get out of your PJ’s or straighten your hair (ahh, the joys of being a girl!).
