I am always looking for new ideas for oatmeal, considering Kirk, Walker and I eat it 6 to 7 days a week for breakfast. No one in this house wants boring oats! I adapted a recipe out of Whole Grains for Busy People: Fast, Flavor-Packed Meals and More for Everyone, page 162.
I cooked it the way I prefer, where I bring everything a boil, rather than adding the oats in after boiling. Either way works, just what I like.
Chai Spiced Oatmeal
- 2 cups milk (I used unsweetened coconut milk)
- 1 cup old fashioned oats
- ¼ cup golden raisins
- 2 Tbsp honey, plus more for topping
- ½ tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1/8 tsp ground cardamom
- 1/8 tsp salt
- ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
- Diced macadamia nuts for topping (or other preferred nut)
Add through salt to a medium saucepan, bring to a boil. Turn to medium-low and cook for 5 minutes, stirring often. Take off teh heat and add in teh vanilla.
Serve sprinkled with nuts and a drizzle more honey.
