It’s autumn. It’s getting colder and darker. What’s better than tea, oatmeal and snuggling down in the sofa with a blanket….?
My thoughts…. what happens if you combine tea and oats?
A few years ago i remember making regular stove cooked oats with tea. And i think it tasted good…. if i remember right. But not so good that it became a regular oatmeal combo for me.
But now… several years later it was time touppdate that recipe and i am so glad i did. Because this has easily become a new favourite oatmeal combo of mine!!
This recipe makes around 3-4 portions, so you can half the recipe if you only want to make 2 portions and instead bake in seperate glass jars.
Also you can use chai tea powder instead of tea bags, i am sure it will give you more chai flavour then!
And you can try this recipe using another tea flavour if you like!
You can use stevia/sugar/syrup instead of dates. I chose dates because it gives more sweet, natural flavour rather than sugar or stevia.
You can use just water or just plantbased milk or just plantbased cream as liquid, but i chose 50/50 oatmilk and oatcream as that is what i had at home. I do personally recommed you use either mylk or cream instead of just water as it gives alot more flavour.
400ml plantbased milk. (Optional, 50/50 milk and cream, or just use plantbased cream. )
2 teabags chai (optional, premade chai mix)
1,5 tbsp chia seeds
1/2 tsp Cinnmon
1/2 tsp Clove
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 Banana – more for topping
2 tbsp Peanut butter
Pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 180C
In a bowl combine the oats, chia seeds, seasoning and peanut butter. Mix.
In a pot heat up the milk/cream and add the chai tea bags. Allow to simmer for 5-7 minutes so that the milk absorbs all of the chai flavour. Remove the tea bags and add the dates. With a handmixer, mix until the dates have become mixed in with the milk.
Then, add the milk to the dry ingredients. Mix.
Pour into your baking form or individual glas jars. Top with extra banana or peanutbuttter.
Bake in the oven C.a 20 minutes.
Once golden brown, take out of the oven and eat warm!!!
As simple as that and so incredibly tasty
The perfect autumn breakfast!!!
