oatmeal (22)After trying oatmeal with almost all kind of fruit I felt like trying something new. I was almost running out of milk and like I already said I don’t really like the taste of oatmeal with just water. A while ago I saw someone making oatmeal with tea so I decided to give it a try. And yes, it’s great! I used peach tea with peach and banana but I’m sure it will work with all kind of tea and fruit combinations.

  • 2 dl water
  • A peach tea bag
  • 0,25 – 0,5 dl milk (you can use whatever milk you want, normal, low fat, almond or soya, I used soya. I’m sure you can also totally leave out the milk and use more tea)
  • 1,5 dl oats
  • Little pinch of salt
  • A tablespoon cinnamon
  • Half a banana
  • A peach (I used peach from a can, just because I didn’t have any fresh ones, I’m sure a fresh one is even better)
  • Some dl flaxseeds or chiaseeds (optional)oatmeal (17)
  • Put  the water in a pan and bring to boil
  • Add the teabag and let it sit for about 4 or 5 min (or longer will be even better but I was just too impatient)
  • Take out the teabag and add the milk
  • When the tea milk mixture is almost boiling or boiling reduce to medium heat and add oats. If you want to add some flaxseeds or chiaseeds do so now.
  • Stir while the liquid is dissolving
  • Add the pinch of salt, cinnamon and chopped peach and banana. (I left a bit of each aside to top later)
  • Keep stirring until all the liquid is dissolved and the oatmeal is smooth and soft. If you want it to be more liquid you can add some more milk
  • Put it in a bowl and add toppings
  • Enjoy!
