Chai spice baked oatmeal with pecan crumble is the ultimate warming breakfast brimming with heart-healthy fats, whole grains, and limited added sugar.
  • 1½ cups almond or oatmilk
  • 2 Chai tea bags
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed
  • 4 Medjool dates, pitted and chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. chia or flaxseeds
  • ¾ tsp. ground cinnamon, divided
  • ¾ tsp. sea salt, divided
  • ½ tsp. ground cardamom
  • ¾ cup mixed chopped nuts (I used a mix of pecans and walnuts)
  • 1 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. coconut oil, melted and slightly cooled
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F, and grease an 8-inch oven-safe skillet.
  2. Bring milk to a simmer in a small saucepan. Add tea bags and remove from heat; let steep for 5 minutes.
  3. Next, combine oats, banana, dates, chia (or flax) seeds, ½ tsp of the cinnamon, ½ tsp of the salt, and cardamom in a large bowl; stir to combine. Remove tea bags from milk and pour into oat mixture; stir to combine. Transfer mixture to prepared skillet.
  4. Reuse the same bowl to combine nuts, brown sugar, coconut oil, and remaining ¼ tsp cinnamon and sea salt. Use your hands to mix and rub brown sugar into crevices of nuts; scatter mixture over oats. Place pan in the oven and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until golden.
