This Baked Chai Spiced French Toast can be prepared the night before and will keep you warm during those chilly winter months! #onthego #breakfast #makeahead

I tend to go for simple recipes first thing in the morning. Smoothies, muesli, maybe some eggs and bacon. And In January I’m less inclined to go the smoothie route because, well, I’m freezing all the time. Seriously, All. The. Time.

Hot breakfasts that use the oven are certainly a good way to keep the kitchen warm during those cold January months. However, I’m also extremely lazy in the morning so I don’t like making anything overly complicated. One solution? Baked french toast. The thing I love about this baked chai spiced french toast is that you can do all of the prep work the night beforehand. Once morning rolls around all you have to do is stick it in the oven. Boom. Warm kitchen, hot breakfast. Sound good?

    Chai and French toast — combining two fabulous things must yield something equally wonderful. I never have time to really make anything for breakfast in the morning, but I could definitely see getting up early on Sundays to make this one as a special treat!

    Sounds so delicious, have to try it soon. Beautiful photography and lighting :)

  • Sarah M

    Would almond milk (i.e. Original Almond Breeze) work for this in place of the 2%/whole milk?

    Looks delicious!

    Sarah

    • Jennifer Farley

      Oh sure. It will just be a bit less creamy. I would use unsweetened almond milk.
