Chai Mule

Chai Mule Oatmeal

Guys! This recipe is an instant favorite! I had never heard of Chai Mules before, but once I learned about this fun take on classic oatmeal I had to try it out! So what is a Chai Mule you may ask? Its oatmeal made with chai tea instead of milk or water. Yes, it’s a simple ingredient swap, but it makes all the difference!

After filling my kitchen with the sweet, spicy scent of chai tea, I pulled the oatmeal off the stove and poured it into a bowl. I couldn’t wait for it to full cool down before giving it a taste, so while savoring my first bite I also burnt my mouth…not ideal! But when something smells that good, can you blame a girl?!

Cinnamon Apple Overnight Oats

After getting overexcited at an apple orchard a few weeks ago Ian and I came home with more apples than we knew what to do with! I made a few few batches of apple sauce, but our kitchen was still overflowing with produce. Cue recipe testing! There’s no better time to get creative in the kitchen than when you are drowning in apples! Right?!

I played around with apple crisp, muffins and overnight oatmeal. My favorite?! Well, I think the title of this post gives it away! The apple cinnamon overnight oatmeal blew me away. I kept checking my recipe notes to make sure this was actually a recipe suitable for breakfast rather than dessert! The blend of the tarte apples, cinnamon and maple syrup creates an indulgent breakfast that is ready to eat on busy mornings.
