Ingredients

For the Chia and Chai Breakfast Bread:

For the Chai Tea Glaze:

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar of choice
  • 1 tbsp brewed Chai tea
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • pinch of cardamom optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees (F) and line a bread pan with parchment paper, leaving some hanging over the sides for easy removal. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together chia seeds, 1/2 cup brewed chai tea and milk then set aside for 10 minutes to allow the chia seeds to gel.
  • In the meantime, whisk together flours, cinnamon, cardamom, allspice, ginger, baking powder, baking soda and salt until all ingredients are evenly distributed.
  • Stir the coconut oil, applesauce, vanilla, and sugar into the chia seed mixture until well combined.
  • Add the dry ingredients into the wet and gently fold or stir until just combined and there is no flour left.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared bread pan and bake on the middle rack for 1 hour or until golden brown and cooked through.
  • Allow the breakfast bread to cool in the pan for 10 minutes then gently lift out of the pan and transfer to a cooling rack and allow to cool completely to the touch.
  • Stir together the glaze ingredients until well combined then drizzle over the bread.
  • Serve warm or cold.
  • Enjoy!
