I always have left over challah and this is a great recipe to use up those dried slices. My preferred milk is oat milk since it has a slightly sweet taste, you can find it in your local health food store.


  • 1 ½ lbs leftover whole wheat or whole spelt challah, dried out
  • 1 cup orange or apple juice
  • ½ cup soy, oat or almond milk
  • 6 eggs, beaten
  • 1 large jar banana baby food
  • ¼ cup light tasting olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. alcohol-free vanilla extract
  • ¾ tsp.sea salt
  • 2 Tbsp. cinnamon
  • 2-3 medium sized apples, grated

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Break up dried challah into small pieces. Pour the juice and milk over the challah and soak until it is softened. Add eggs, bananas, oil, vanilla, salt and cinnamon. Mix well. Add grated apples and mix again. Bake in a greased 9" x 13" pan for 50 minutes. Serve warm.
