The Hygge Series: Almond Chai Masala French Toast

It seems I am getting a fair bit obsessed with French toasts – and perhaps just as well as there are eggs and bread – two of my most favourite things in the world. For today’s recipe, I’m merging the classic French toast, with a stuffing of almond butter, a bit of honey for sweetening and the earthiness of Kitchen Therapy Chai Masala! You’ll be hit with the fragrance of Christmas, and I see no issues in that thanks to this crazy cold wave we’re dealing with here – and offers up the perfect way to defrost.

You can forgo the honey, if you are using sweetened almond butter or don’t have much of a sweet tooth. Ideally this French toast can be eaten on its own with some fresh fruit or just a drizzle of honey – the decision is up to your taste buds!
