A fresh take on the classic french toast, like a jam-filled sandwich, we’ve skipped the egg and made a binding agent with grounded chia seeds. Ideal for those with egg allergies or just prefers a vegan alternative.

With the help of Chia Co we present to you, Vegan Chia Seed French Toast, stuffed with strawberry chia jam.

Ingredients

Berry Chia Jam

  • 1 cup mixed berries (frozen or fresh)
  • 60 ml apple juice
  • 2 tbsp Chia Co. Chia Seeds
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 vanilla bean split, seeds scrapped
  • 1/2 tspn thyme leaves
  • zest from 1 lemon finely grated zest

Chia French Toast

  • 1 tbsp chia seeds grounded into a fine meal so seeds are undetectable
  • 1/2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond/hemp milk
  • pinch thyme leaves
  • 1/2 tspn ground cinnamon
  • 1 vanilla bean split, seeds scrapped
  • 4-5 slices of bread

Instructions

Berry Chia Jam

  • Place the berries, apple juice, chia seeds, maple syrup, vanilla seeds, thyme and lemon zest in a blender.
  • Blend for about 30 seconds, just long enough to break up and combine everything.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1-2 weeks.

Chia French Toast

  • Mix all ingredients except the bread in a large, shallow bowl. Place in the fridge to activate for 10-20 minutes.
  • Preheat griddle to medium heat and grease with olive oil.
  • Make a jam sandwich by buttering two slices of bread with chia jam then placing them together.
  • Dip and soak both sides of your jam sandwich in the batter for about 20 seconds on each side. If your bread is dry, leave it in a little longer. If you’re using sandwich bread, it should only need 25-30 seconds total to soak.
