Chai French Toast Muffins
  • 1 Loaf Canyon Bakehouse Ancient Grain Bread
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 C. Milk
  • 1/3 C. Maple Syrup, plus more for serving
  • ¾ tsp. Vanilla
  • ½ tsp. Ground Cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. Ground Ginger
  • ¼ tsp. Ground Cardamom
  • 1 batch Almond Oat Crumble (see below)
Almond Oat Crumble
  • ½ C. Cane Sugar
  • 5 Tbsp. Butter, plus more for the pan
  • ¾ C. Gluten-free Rolled oats
  • ½ C. Whole raw almonds


  1. Prepare the wells of a standard muffin tin with paper liners.
  2. Dice the bread to ½ inch. Divide them among the paper liners in the muffin tin.
  3. In a large liquid measuring cup, whisk together the milk, eggs, 1/3 C. maple syrup and vanilla.
  4. Gently pour the milk and egg mixture over the diced bread, filling each of the cups just over halfway. Cover the tin and chill for 2 hours or overnight.
  5. Just before time to bake, make the almond oat crumble. Combine the sugar, butter, rolled oats, and whole almonds in a food processor. Pulse lightly to chop until just incorporated.
  6. Pre-heat the oven to 325 degrees. Uncover the chilled muffins. Sprinkle the tops with almond oat crumble and bake for 35-40 minutes, until set and golden.
  7. Once the bake has cooled slightly, serve warm with maple syrup, if desired.
