Chocolate Chai Oatmeal

Baby’s been waking me up a lot at night lately. Whether it’s 4 am or 2 am, I am always hungry when I’m up. One morning, I woke up particularly early, so I decided to make a big batch of oatmeal.DSCN1322I started by combining rolled oats and milk on the stove.

DSCN1323Then I decided to combine my favourite chai spiced flavours – vanilla, cardamom, and cinnamon.

DSCN1324Into the pot it all went!

DSCN1325To make matters even tastier, I added a bunch of cocoa powder. Yummers!!

DSCN1327For texture, I threw in some almonds and sesame seeds.

DSCN1329Add some milk to water it down a bit, add a sprinkle of brown sugar, and enjoy!
