Brew 1.5 cups chai tea and let cool.
I would recommend brewing the tea on the light side if you want to avoid a 'sharp' taste to your oatmeal. And trust me... let the tea cool, otherwise you'll wind up with an explosion in your microwave!
In a large, microwave-friendly container, combine
3/4 cup old-fashioned oats
1/4 cup raisins
Add the tea and nuke for 3.5 min or as appropriate for your own microwave. Mix in
1/2 t pumpkin pie spice*
Would I make this recipe again? Yes! I may even try it tomorrow.
*My spice cupboard didn't run to pumpkin pie spice, so I mixed up a batch using this recipe:
Homemade Pumpkin Pie Spice
1 t ground cinammon
1/4 t ground ginger
1/4 t ground nutmeg
1/4 t ground cloves
NB: I used Penzey's spices and they are potent! The original Chai Oatmeal recipe called for 1-1/4 t of spices for a smaller quantity of oatmeal, but I only used 1/2 t of this mix and it was plenty.
