Beautiful blend of flavors. I think the honey is key to tying in the spices. Used ground cloves and extra cinnamon and nutmeg instead of allspice. I think dried apples or raisins may be in order next time I make this yummy breakfast!

This was interesting! I have been experimenting with Chai spices, though I don't drink tea. I used cloves instead of the allspice, and went easy on the tumeric. I also added dried apples. I liked the blend of spices and will make a double batch next time.

I found this to be a little bland for my tastes, but I omitted the honey. I think dried fruit would be a worthwhile addition.

DH certainly got something a little different this morning... he enjoyed it though! Mine was nice and yellow from the turmeric, and beautifully spicy, I added a healthy dollop of plain yoghurt and drizzled it with a good tablespoon of honey, next time I can try adding fruit and such. DH approached it gingerly, but said it was jolly good! Certainly very easy to make, taking hardly any more time than the time it would take me to put together his usual muesli and fruit.

This was good - a tasty change from regular oatmeal. I made as directed, including the honey - as such, it was a little sweet for me. All in all, good stuff! Thanks for the recipe! Made for PRMR Tag Game.

Well, what can I say! If you want to boost your morning to an exotic level and smile the rest of the day; this is the breakfast to have. It was just lovely. I let the oats sit in skim milk for a few minutes before cooking and used Splenda as a sweetener. This is perfect for someone on a Low GI diet or someone who wants a Yummy breakfast. thks, BB PS: Made for Incredible India Tag, 02/09

A very different and unique twist on the normal bowl of oats. I included all the ingredients you have listed except the tumeric which I didn't have. I used skim water intially to get the oats started in the microwave and then added skim milk, raisins, and a packet of Splenda. I"m glad I tried this using the different spices as I would never have thought to add these to my morning bowl of oats. Thanks SB.~ Made for PRMR.

This was amazing. I substituted steel cut oats and make it overnight in the crockpot so it would be done in the morning. I added a little brown sugar and instead of using milk I used the recommended amount of milk but substituted water and added dried milk. I also topped it off with extra cinnamon, golden raisins, chopped pecans... Be sure to use fresh spices. I had some old cardamom... it didn't even smell like it anymore - then I found a new bottle in the back of my spice cabinet. That made all the difference. I also used ground cloves AND allspice. This was really great. It was a nice recipe to tweak to your likeness. Thank you!

Wow! What a twist on oatmeal! I was very leery of trying this, never associating these spices with a breakfast food. I wouldn't change a thing (and I didn't - other than scaling it to 1 serving). Thank you!
