There’s not much that I love more than a hot chai tea made with almond milk from our local coffee shop, Sam and Zoe’s. One look at my debit card statement would quickly give me away. I love a good chai, so when I saw a recipe for chai oatmeal made with almond milk I knew I had to give it a try. I found it on a blog called Healthy Aperture and I could not resist, especially when said oatmeal is also gluten free and is topped with warm, spicy, buttered pears. Oh my goodness, is your mouth watering imagining it?
I’m not one to spend a lot of time making breakfast because our mornings are pretty busy trying to get the boys out the door for school in the morning, but since Abby is home schooled, I decided to make this for our breakfast one morning after the boys had left for school. It was a bit time consuming but the end product was so worth it. It is wonderfully spiced, just like my favorite winter drink, and the pears add a sweet (but not too sweet) fruity flavor that completes the dish perfectly. Click over to Healthy Aperture for the recipe and try this one while we still have cold mornings that call for warm comforting breakfasts.
