When it comes to anything concerning chai I am a bit (more than) obsessed. In all its iterations I love the spice, the breadth of flavor, and the instant stomach soothe when you drink a mug- hot or chilled. When I’m not taking the time to mix my spices to make my very own blend of chai I tend to gravitate toward a single specific brand that is actually based right here in Colorado! Bhakti Chai, out of Boulder has *the best* recipes for both their concentrates and their ready-to-drink blends.
This month I had the awesome opportunity to pop up the Bhakti brewing space up in Longmont, and along with out lovely host from Sprouts Farmer’s Market, tour their facility and meet Bhakti’s founder, Brook Eddy. Not only is Brook the creator behind Bhakti’s flavor, but she is also a bad ass business woman that grounds her company in community and social good. The word bhakti translated means ‘devotional service’ and Brook takes this super seriously- it is the foundation of her company’s core values. Yes, please.
So, because I just can’t help myself when it comes to creating recipes, I thought I would marry two of my favorite flavors together- chai and french toast, because, brunch. This super simple recipe is chock full of chai spice and the decadence of french toast with only four ingredients. Can’t top that!
Bhakti Chai French Toast Ingredients
Your Choice of Bread- My Favorite for French Toast is Challah
1/3 Cup of Milk (I used Almond Milk)
1/3 Cup Bhakti Chai Concentrate
Bhakti Chai French Toast Instructions
- Pre-heat your non-stick frying pan to a medium high heat. Preheating will help the french toast slices not stick!
- In a large bowl (the bottom of the bowl should be wide enough to fit your chosen bread) whisk together your eggs, milk, and chai concentrate.
- Dip each slice of your bread into the chai mixture to saturate both sides. Note: if you’ve chosen challah bread like I did, this is MESSY. If you are looking for a picture-perfect end result a more solid bread (like regular loaf bread slices) will be easier to work with- but ohhhhh challah is amazing!
- Working in batches, place slices in your frying pan for 3-4 minutes each side until golden brown and cooked through. This time might vary depending on your bread’s thickness.
- Serve hot with your favorite toppings! I went with strawberries and organic, pure maple syrup!
I told you- SO simple and such a decadent way to start your morning! I would love to know- how do you use chai concentrate in your every day life? Let me know in the comments below!
