Spice Chai Oats Caramelized Bananas and Chocolate Hazelnut Butter

unnamed
I’m a little crazy for Chai — sweet, savory, spicy awww man it’s my favorite. One of our perfect nights entails a walk down to Alta for a big cuppa vanilla chai tea on their twinkly-lit patio. Since I love chai tea so much, I decided to add it to our breakfast. Can’t go wrong with that, right? So here you go, a big bowl of vanilla chai spiced oats, topped with cacao nibs, pecans, hemp seeds, chocolate hazelnut butter and warm caramelized bananas swimming in vanilla hemp milk!

Oatmeal
1 cup vanilla hemp mylk
1/2 cup organic “Oregon Chai” tea concentrate
1 tsp vanilla bean paste
1 cup rolled oats
– In a medium saucepan, bring hemp mylk, chai tea and vanilla bean paste to a boil. Reduce heat and add rolled oats. Cook for 10-20 minutes stirring occasionally, until desired consistency. Remove from heat, cover and let stand for 2 minutes before serving.

Caramelized Bananas
1 banana
1 tbsp coconut sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp coconut oil
-Peel and cut the banana in half. Sprinkle coconut sugar and cinnamon on each side. Heat coconut oil in a frying pan and lay the bananas sugar-side down into the coconut oil. Fry for 2 minutes or until golden brown.

Toppings
1 tbsp hemp seeds
1 tbsp cacao nibs
1 tbsp pecans
1 tbsp chocolate hazelnut butter
Star anise
Cinnamon
+ more vanilla hemp mylk for pouring

A Toasty Breakfast: Chocolate Hazelnut & Pb With Strawberries

Toast

Keeping it simple this morning multigrain omega-3 toast with chocolate hazelnut and pb spread, topped with strawberries, cocoa almond granola and hemp seeds + cinnamon spice apple water to go! I love flavoring my water…it’s always been a challenge for me to drink those 8 glasses a day. I found that flavoring water with fruit and spices keeps me interested. I thought it would be fun to embrace the fall season with some traditional flavors… cinnamon sticks a few cloves and allspice or star anise, apple slices or orange peels etc. Sip and refill! The flavor should last for 2 days if you keep it refrigerated!
