Chai French Toast Muffins

Chai French Toast Muffins
The idea for these "muffins" came to me while I was making them. They were originally going to be apple cinnamon flavored but then I saw the chai tea in my fridge and thought it would make an awesome addition to these French toast muffins. I was right! They were full of flavor and made a great breakfast.

Adalyn's deconstructed version
My baby ate two of these for breakfast along with a bunch of fruit and coconut butter. She loved them! My husband enjoyed them as well  and had his with syrup. I had mine with fruit, peanut butter, a bit of syrup and coconut butter. All of the ways were delicious!

These would be great for kids on a school morning when you are in a hurry. I prepped everything the night before and then just threw them in the oven for 30 minutes first thing in the morning. Easy and delicious!

Enjoy right away or save for during the week for a quick breakfast. I made enough that Adalyn can eat these through the week. They make a great breakfast for her. She was covered in flax bits by the end  of her meal!

The protein mix is dairy, gluten and soy free. One serving has 16 grams protein and 7 grams of fiber. It contains a concentrated greens blend with broccoli and spinach. It is a blend of proteins including pea protein, brown rice protein and alfalfa juice protein concentrate.
