I love oatmeal and all of its carby goodness. Hopefully you do too because I have a lot of oatmeal recipes to post. This is my latest oatmeal concoction, and it is fabulous.
1/4 cup oatmeal (I used Coach's Oats)
1 & 1/2 cups brewed chai (I used Tazo, but any kind will do)
1/2 mashed banana
1 Splenda packet
almonds, raisins, and pumpkin seeds to garnish
I like my oatmeal really creamy, and this cooking tip seems to really do the trick. Combine oatmeal and 1 cup of the chai the night before, bring to a boil for just a quick second, and then turn off the heat and cover the pot with a lid. In the morning add the other 1/2 cup of chai, mashed banana, Splenda, and finish cooking the oatmeal like you normally would.
Tea oats are heavenly in general, but so far chai flavored has been my ultimate fave.
For another "toats" recipe, keep reading.
This next batch of oats was infused with vanilla & caramel flavored tea (Bigelow brand).
1/4 cup oatmeal
2 cups tea
2 Splenda packets
1/2 mashed banana (for texture and sweetness)
a few drops of vanilla extract
granola (w/ sunflower seeds, dried coconut and raisins)
