  • 2 1/2 cups milk , or water
  • 1 cup quick oats
  • 4 chai tea bags
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • sliced bananas
  • toasted sliced almonds
  • toasted coconut chips

Instructions

  • WHISK eggs with milk and oats in a medium saucepan and set over medium-low. Add tea bags. Cook, stirring often, until very creamy, about 15 min. Discard tea bags. Stir in honey, cinnamon, ginger and salt.
