Earl Grey Oatmeal

Earl Grey Oatmeal

I’ve just spent a week in the US and like I always do I came back so full I felt a little queasy on the plane ride back. I ate some amazing food in New Hampshire, Boston and Maine, which I’ll post about later. To recover from my foodscapades I’m on a self imposed diet of oatmeal for breakfast and salads for lunch.

Earl Grey Oatmeal


Oatmeal can be pretty tedious and has all the texture of wall paper paste so I’m always on the lookout for ways to liven it up. Infusing earl grey tea bags in the milk before adding the oats imparts the bergamont and black tea essence.

The recipe is from A Better Happier St. Sebastian. I didn’t simmer my oatmeal for 20 minutes. I did around 10 minutes instead. I don’t like my oatmeal too dry. If you’re a big tea lover like me than you will love this oatmeal. Next time I’m going to try a few Chai tea bags for a spicy oatmeal.

    Have you tried making it with Almond milk? I get the Blue Diamond one from Asda it’s only 28 calories per 200 ml. I only eat it with that now and I sprinkle some fresh blueberries on top.
