    Chai-Spiced Overnight Oats

    Chai-Spiced Overnight Oats made with less than 7 ingredients chaispicedovernightoats

    I so did not want this weekend to end at all.

    Not like I ever want the weekend to end, but we had so many exciting friend things going on. Living in NYC, I am lucky enough to see most of my college friends often. In fact my best friend lives on the same block as me (hey D!).

    But those nights out at the bar that almost make you feel like you are back in college again are the best feeling. Except the next morning when I am feeling a tad under the weather and crave all the carbs and avocado toast imaginable (oops).

    College also reminds me of chai tea. Random, I know. But we had a coffee shop on campus and since I’m not a big coffee drinker, chai tea was always my go to for my warm library beverage.

    At first I was going to cook these oats on the stovetop with a chai tea bag (which I still may will), but then I was introduced to a plant based chai protein powder. I am officially OBSESSING over it. It smells and tastes amazing and doesn’t have that heavy protein texture and isn’t chalky either.

    I also wanted to add pecans and coconut for a little crunch, but that’s obviously optional.

    The real cherry on top of these oats is the chai-spiced caramel from Hatchery. It is SO delicious. It adds a sweetness and I used it instead of a nut butter because the taste is overpowering.

    Chai > coffee ALL DAY. I always make a chai latte when I want a non-fruity tea. I love throwing chai spices into smoothies and oats – this is right up my alley!
