As always I am on the hunt for new yummy breakfast options. I am also a lover of chai tea. Lover is being modest. I am addicted… So this recipe is perfect for me and any other chai addicts out there.
This just takes a couple minutes of prep work the night before. Then you can pack this up for an easy breakfast at work or a quick breakfast before you leave for work.
Chai Pear Oatmeal
Based on a recipe by The Oatmeal Artist
- 2 chai tea bags
- 1 cup hot water
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 2 tablespoons hemp seeds
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- generous pinch of ground cloves, nutmeg, ginger, and allspice
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 pear, diced
- agave nectar, to taste
Steep chai tea in 1 cup of hot water. Give it at LEAST 10 minutes.
While tea is steeping, in a storage container combine rolled oats, hemp seeds, cinnamon, ground cloves, nutmeg, ginger, allspice.
Once tea has cooled, add vanilla extract. And place in a storage container.
When you are ready to eat, combine oat mixture and chai. Microwave for about 1 to 1 and a half minutes. Add diced pear and agave nectar to taste.
If you would like a thinner texture you can add some almond or soy milk. Also feel free to change up the fruits and seeds to whatever your favorites are.
