Pecan chai oatmeal

I have not made a new oatmeal flavor in quite sometime and with the amount of oatmeal we go through I thought a new flavor was in order. This pecan chai oatmeal was just perfect. Not only was easy to make but it was the bomb!

Have you started making your own oatmeal already? Let me tell you, those pre-packed store bought varieties don’t do your homemade oatmeal justice. Those pre-packed version only have tons of sugar and oats. Their flavors come from the sugar and that is about it.

The spices I used for this pecan chai oatmeal are the classic spices used to make chai tea. I could have used chai tea bags but going straight to the spices themselves I thought it would give the oatmeal a more authentic stronger flavor.

I also used Silk unsweetened almond milk, which is the milk that we mostly drink. I love the fact that Silk is enrolled in and verified by the Non-GMO Project. A little piece of mind for the family.

This pecan chai oatmeal not only is dairy-free, but cholesterol free as well as diabetic friendly. The sweetness comes from the maple syrup so if you want to adapt the recipe and use less go ahead. I thought my version wasn’t too sweet at all so adding just 1/4 cup was OK.

I love making oatmeal for the family. My kids eat it rather good, it is a healthy alternative to the boxed cereal and I love the fact that you can make endless variations. Since it is pecan season, why not incorporate it to my oatmeal?

Enjoy!
