Roasted Banana Chai Baked Oatmeal
January 21, 2013
I have been on a breakfast binge so to speak. Last week I posted 5o Amazing Oatmeal Recipes which you guys swooned over. Since we all love oatmeal so much I figured why not share a new oat recipe today!
I dig chai tea and I figured it would be a delicious flavoring to add to oatmeal ~ you have gotta try this asap…
I adore bananas as do my kiddos.
Roasting fruits and vegetables adds so much flavor. The heat brings out a natural sweetness and amplified flavor. It is worth the extra time it takes.
The natural sugars are pronounced and caramelization happens.
This recipe is vegan and gluten free in case you are wondering.
Baked oatmeal is awesome because you get to make a large amount of healthy food that that is perfect to grab when you are in a time crunch.
Not sure about you but I am always in a time crunch these days…
Maybe it has something to do with a ski resort outside my front door.
The sunrises here in Telluride are spectacular ~ a fun way to wake up and enjoy oatmeal and a steamy cup of coffee.
Top your oats with raisins, almonds and creamy coconut milk.
The chai tea is steeped in almond and coconut milk….it adds the perfect spiced flavor to this dish.
For some guilt free decadence top with some Vegan Coconut Whipped Cream.
Enjoy this comforting, healthy and balanced way to start the day!
