I’m always trying to find new ways to dress oatmeal up a bit. Oatmeal is a frugal breakfast option that is very filling. When you find a recipe that you love and want to incorporate into your menu, you can save quite a bit of money on your grocery bill!
My Chocolate Chai Oatmeal is a decadent way to get your “E” meals in if you’re following the Trim Healthy Mama plan. It features a rich, dark chocolate base with a hint of chai spice to give you a unique breakfast experience. The best part is, you don’t even have to own the many spices that make up a chai blend. For this recipe, we’re going the easy route and using chai tea to boil our oatmeal in. This oatmeal tastes like dessert and it’s a wonderful way to start your day! Confession: I’ve actually made this recipe for a snack and even dessert. It’s that good!
This recipe makes one large bowl of oatmeal. I like to top mine with a dollop of Greek or Triple Zero yogurt for added protein. The oatmeal is quite thick, so feel free to add a dash or two of almond or cashew milk to get the consistency you want!
