- My Notes -

  • 1 tablespoon Sliced Almonds - (flaked are hard to find)
  • 0.75 cup Water
  • 0.5 cup Almond Milk
  • 2 teaspoon Chai Tea - sliced,loose leaf (flaked are hard to find)
  • 1 Banana - ripe firm,quartered
  • 1.5 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 0.25 cup Oats
  • 1 teaspoon Chia Seeds
  • 0.5 teaspoon Ground Cardamom (Cardamon)
  • 0.13 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon Pure Maple Syrup
  • 1 teaspoon Walnuts - chopped
  • Heat a small skillet on high to toast the sliced almonds until golden and fragrant. Remove almonds from pan and allow to cool.
  • Heat a small saucepan over medium-high to bring the milk and water to a light simmer. Remove from heat, add the tea and allow to infuse for 8 minutes.Remove the tea leaves/bag and pour the milk tea into a pyrex container and set aside (you will use the saucepan again).
  • In the meantime, peel the banana and slice in half vertically. Sprinkle the banana halves with ½ t cinnamon and grill until they begin to bubble and caramelize.
  • Add the oats, chia seeds, 1 t cinnamon, cardamom, pinch of nutmeg, and 3/4 of the milky tea mixture to the saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat.
  • Continue simmering, stirring from time to time,until the oats and seeds have absorbed the liquid, about 5 minutes. Add the remaining milk mixture adding extra water/milk if needed. Remove from heat when a desired consistency is reached.Sweeten with maple syrup.
  • Spoon porridge into a serving bowl and top with the grilled banana, maple syrup, walnuts, and toasted almonds.
We recommend using organic, certified gluten free oats. Use herbal chai rooibos tea for a caffeine free version. Feel free to substitute the almond milk for any other dairy free milk.
