Recipe For Oatmeal With Tea

OnSugar Blog: Tea Oats, Toats

This post comes from OnSugar blog Sophie's Sweeties.

I love oatmeal and all of its carby goodness. Hopefully you do too because I have a lot of oatmeal recipes to post. This is my latest oatmeal concoction, and it is fabulous.
1/4 cup oatmeal (I used Coach's Oats)
1 & 1/2 cups brewed chai (I used Tazo, but any kind will do)
1/2 mashed banana
1 Splenda packet
almonds, raisins, and pumpkin seeds to garnish

Cooking tip:
I like my oatmeal really creamy, and this cooking tip seems to really do the trick. Combine oatmeal and 1 cup of the chai the night before, bring to a boil for just a quick second, and then turn off the heat and cover the pot with a lid. In the morning add the other 1/2 cup of chai, mashed banana, Splenda, and finish cooking the oatmeal like you normally would.

Tea oats are heavenly in general, but so far chai flavored has been my ultimate fave.
For another "toats" recipe, keep reading.

This next batch of oats was infused with vanilla & caramel flavored tea (Bigelow brand).

Cooked with:
1/4 cup oatmeal
2 cups tea
2 Splenda packets
1/2 mashed banana (for texture and sweetness)
a few drops of vanilla extract
Topped with:
granola (w/ sunflower seeds, dried coconut and raisins)

What flavor of toats should I try next?!

I had some toats this morning with blueberries and PB2 on top. So. Good. Thanks for the inspired idea, it was dee-licious.

I have never thought of mixing tea and oatmeal, but it's a great idea. Plus I love your coinage "toats."

this sounds too sweet for me, even without the splenda. i prefer my oatmeal savory, with a poached egg, smoked salmon or sardines (no bacon for me)

There's no need to add Splenda if you don't want to. I'll try a batch without next time :) I like the idea of using fruit to naturally sweeten it!
