We’re now 4 days in to December. I’ve got Christmas music playing and holidays on the mind. This is the time of the year where the cold actually somehow manages to feel cheerful and the dark and long nights are not only tolerable but even enjoyable because of all the holiday lights. I’m trying to soak it all up before January comes around and I want to crawl under all my covers and stay there until in gets warm.
Anyhow, oatmeal! I’m sure my obsession for this breakfast isn’t going to end anytime soon. There’s nothing like a warm and comforting bowl of oats to start your day when it’s cold outside. This recipe is so easy but so tasty. Perfect for when you are in a rush but another bowl of cereal just isn’t going to cut it.
Chai Tea Latte Oatmeal
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup chai tea latte mix (I use http://www.oregonchai.com/our-products/oregon-chai/ – the lightly sweetened variety makes the perfect latte)
1/2 cup almond milk
Place 1/2 cup oats in a microwave safe bowl. Add in 1 tsp cinnamon and stir. Add Chai tea mix and almond milk and stir again. Microwave for 2 minutes (or according to directions on your oats). Remove from microwave and sprinkle with more cinnamon if desired. Yum!
