Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Matcha Muffins

I’ve been having a lot of fun experimenting with a new-to-me ingredient lately…

Chocolate French Toast

The recipe that you will find below is for two French toast sandwiches written using English units.

The ingredient list is quite simple really. You will need brioche, milk, eggs, cinnamon, nutmeg, chocolate spread, pistachios and maple syrup.
