Chai Oatmeal

I'm addicted to Grande Tazo Chai at Starbucks. And putting these flavors into oatmeal was too tempting. Here's a special brunch if you like Chai Latte.

Chai Oatmeal

Serves 2

1 1/2 cups milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
pinch nutmeg
1 vanilla bean
1/4 cup honey
3/4 cup oats

yogurt, nuts, dried fruit, raisins, coconut or fresh fruit

Pour milk into a saucepan. Whisk in salt and spices. Add vanilla bean and honey. Stir to blend. Bring this mixture to a boil, lower heat and simmer for about 5 minutes to blend the flavors.

Add the oats and stir. Cover the pan and leave over low heat for about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally so that the mixture doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan.

When the oatmeal has thickened to your taste, remove the vanilla bean and serve with yogurt, nuts, dried fruit, raisins, coconut or fresh fruit and milk.

    This looks amazing! I'm a big fan of oatmeal for breakfast, but it can definitely get boring after a while...this sounds like a great way to spice it up!
