Chai Oatmeal

Chai Oatmeal created by Karen Elizabeth

This is an adaptation of a recipe that was published in our local paper. My daughter and I like it so much I have made a large batch of the spice mix to simplify our breakfast routine. Anyone who likes Indian food will probably enjoy this for a change.

  • 14 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 14 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • sometimes i add toasted chopped walnuts (optional) or almonds, after cooking depending on my mood and what is on hand (optional)

directions

  • Combine oatmeal and flavourings in a deep, microwave safe bowl.
  • Add milk and stir to combine.

    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.
