I love whipping out my waffle maker on mornings when I have a little bit more time because A. waffles are delicious, B. my daughter loves them and C. they look like you spent a long time making homemade waffles when really, they are quite easy! I decided to channel my love for all things fall and make these waffles using chai tea. They turned out wonderfully and have a medium chai flavor- not too strong, which is just the way that I like it.

Typically, breakfast happens with the whole family, except right now, Mama needs some alone time! Life has been SO crazy lately with some health scares (we are all okay!), our car being broken into and my purse being stolen, my phone screen shattering, our heat not working (it is working now!), etc. etc. I need a break! I know that many people have it much worse than this and trust me, I feel for you and am not complaining. What doesn't kill us makes us stronger, right?? I felt overwhelmed and stressed and now that things are calming down, I need to take a second for me and have some peace and quiet.

I'm not one for going to the spa or doing yoga or anything like that but just having an hour of alone time to make breakfast, eat it, drink some hot chai tea and catch up on reading blogs is just what this busy mama needs.

As we head into the holiday season, I am going to bet that some of you are feeling overwhelmed and stressed too. With the never ending to-do lists, wanting to fit in all of the holiday fun and making it the best holiday season ever, there can be a ton of stress. Take just a little bit of me time to have a cup of hot tea or this delicious breakfast by yourself to regroup so that you can get back out there and get done all of the things that you need too.

I have a little secret- if you do not want to make your own waffle mix, just pick up your favorite whole-grain mix and add the chai tea instead of the liquid that it calls for. I have done that and it turns out great as well. I like using white whole-wheat flour to make these waffles fiber and nutrient packed. I also used yogurt in them for protein and calcium. Serve them on their own or with fruit, bacon, a fried egg or whatever you like.

For this recipe, I used Oregon Chai The Original which I picked up from Meijer in the tea section, found right in the middle of the shelf. They also have a Slightly Sweet version and a Sugar-Free version. The Slightly Sweet is my favorite one. You can drink it iced, hot or throw it into a recipe like I did. I just skipped the regular liquids that go into a waffle recipe and used this chai tea instead. They turned out perfectly!

This chai tea latte is great in this recipe of course but it is also really good on its own. I like it heated up in a mug on these cold days that we have been having. The Original and Slightly Sweet are organic and Non-GMO project verified. Chai tea lattes are an indulgent and can be a better-for-you alternative that offer gourmet and trendy flavor profiles that increase the quality of the tea drinking experience.
