I made this today and it was really good. The tip about scraping the seeds off before cooking was helpful. The kids loved it!

This chia seed french toast was really good. The bread I chose was rustic and dry so I had to soak it in the batter a little longer than if I had chosen a softer bread. However, I definitely enjoyed this meal and liked the added chia seeds for nutrition.
