Oh my gosh.  THIS OATMEAL.

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I love making stove-top oatmeal with mashed banana and chia seeds. It makes for the creamiest consistency and gives a perfectly sweet taste without the need for added sugars. This is one of my signature breakfasts, and it’s seriously hard to go back to eating oatmeal without these ingredients now.

I recently had the chance to sample Dona Chai’s Chai Tea Concentrate, a locally-brewed mixture of freshly ground chai spices and cold pressed ginger root.  Not only do I love supporting local companies, but this stuff tastes delicious! It’s so easy to make a hot or cold chai tea latte using this, but my absolute favorite way to use it has to be in oatmeal. Topped with fresh figs, creamy peanut butter, coconut flakes, pepitas, and cacao nibs, this is one filling, healthy, and mouthwatering way to start your day.
