Pumpkin Chai Oatmeal

Let’s give a WOOT WOOT for another super easy breakfast recipe! Yes, I’m a sucker for easy mornings – so naturally I rarely make a breakfast that isn’t simple. BUT it also has to taste great, right?! Luckily this Pumpkin Chai Oatmeal was a hit – especially with pumpkin-loving hubby!

After making this Apple Fritter Oatmeal awhile ago, I was determined to make one specifically for Nerd Dad’s love of all things pumpkin and chai. I’d call it a success with this tasty version! It’s definitely best warm/hot – but in my opinion all oatmeal is. Anyone like it cold? We agreed that topping it with dried cranberries really added to the flavor, so I highly recommend adding some of those in.

See, really easy and quick to make for a better morning. Plus, oatmeal is a filling breakfast, so you won’t be hungry as early – score! Hubby wants to try the pumpkin chai syrup in a drink recipe next – so stay tuned either here or on his blog for that delish drink! Yes, he cooks and creates yummy foods just as often as I do – one of the MANY reasons I’m crazy about that nerdy man!
