French Toast Casserole!

Not sure what to do with that leftover loaf of bread from Thanksgiving going stale in your pantry?!  Turn it into this delicious masterpiece!  It's so easy and tasty!  It's also free of white sugar and is vegan friendly!

What you need:
2 tsp chia seeds
1 1/2 cup milk of your choice (I used homemade coconut milk)
5 tsp Water
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 tbsp raw honey
2 drops vanilla extract
Pinch sea salt
Loaf of bread of choice
1/2 tsp baking powder

Soak chia seeds in water for 15 minutes, until gelled.  Add coconut milk, gelled chia seeds, 1 and 1/2 tsp cinnamon, nutmeg, honey, baking powder and vanilla to a blender and blend until thoroughly mixed.  Tear bread into chunks (I used half a loaf of leftover sourdough) and add to a casserole dish and pour batter over bread.  The batter should come almost to the top of where the bread sits.  Top with remaining cinnamon and bake in oven pre-heated to 375 degrees for 30 minutes, until the top is golden brown and the batter isn't soupy.  If your bread is really stale, you may want to let it soak for a couple of hours or overnight before baking.

Once ready, remove the casserole from the oven and let sit for 10 minutes.  Serve with real maple syrup or your favourite fruit syrup!

Bon appétit!
