Mornings have gotten chillier and chillier. And I love it. Once I wave goodbye to my girls goodbye as Haileigh drives to school, I skip go inside and make a cup of coffee, watch Today and then make breakfast a little while thereafter. I usually alternate between veggie/spinach scramble and oatmeal. Normally when I make oatmeal, I just make regular old oatmeal and top it with cinnamon and a little brown sugar or maple syrup. After reorganizing my spice cupboard and I found my homemade chai spice and a light went off.

So I heated up almond coconut milk with chai spice and simmer it until thick. I topped my bowl with homemade applesauce (a recipe I’ll share soon, I promise!) and maple syrup. And not just any maple syrup, real maple syrup. Bonus points if you get the bourbon barrel stuff. AMAZING.
