Ah, another morning, aka another quest for a satisfying, nutritious, and beautifully enticing breakfast, (at least that’s me; but I have unusual quests) Anyway, I digress…

I’ve recently been craving indian food and I thought why not satisfy this with an indian inspired breakfast? Chai, specifically masala chai, refers to a combination of indian spices. We westerners typically think of a creamy spicy tea when we hear chai (think chai tea lattes), but these spices can actually lend themselves to many unique recipes. I hope you enjoy my take on the masala chai spices with this warm and tart oatmeal recipe.

Recipe:

  • 1/2 cup GF oats (or the oats of your choosing)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 quality glug of culinary coconut milk ( I know glug isn’t a real measurement but I find it does the trick)
  • 1 pinch of cinnamon/cardamom/sea salt/nutmeg/ginger/a teensy pinch of turmeric
  • 1 red plum, cut into slices

optional: coconut shavings, walnuts, honey ( as shown below)
