    I always like to spice up my oats as well! Sometimes using my favourite flavour of tea instead of just boiling water, add nuts or peanut butter 😍 or just milk and honey. Love oats!

      Making it with chai tea sounds like it could be really good! I’m going to have to try that next time I make oats. Thanks for the tip! (:
