You Gotta Try It Tea Oatmeal

Submitted by: WHOAMINOTTOBE

Introduction

Everyone knows the health benefits of oatmeal. Well, this recipe kicks up those benefits and adds tons of extra flavor by using flavored teas to cook the oatmeal, instead of water! I know it sounds a little bizarre, but try it once. This recipe uses my new favorite flavor, Apple Cinnamon Tea. (Bonus: It smells wonderful!!) Everyone knows the health benefits of oatmeal.

Ingredients

    1 1/4 cups your choice Flavored Brewed Tea (mine is Apple Cinnamon)
    1 cup uncooked Oatmeal

    Then add:

    1/2 Tbsp Honey (or your choice of sweetener)
    2 Tbsp Wheat Germ
    2 Tbsp Flax Seed
    30 or so Raisins
    5 Slivered Almonds

    For an extra kick of energy, I add Bee Pollen as well.

Directions

Cook oatmeal with Tea, instead of usual water.
In my microwave, this takes 2 1/2 minutes.
When done, the oatmeal should be on the watery side. Add the extras, stir and you're done!

All the extras are yours to mix and match with the tea flavor you choose. The possibilities are limitless!

Makes 1 very filling serving.
