Green tea and oatmeal two of my biggest breakfast obsessions. I decided that I needed to combine these two ingredients to make the ultimate breakfast oatmeal made with green tea! Beware! This oatmeal has a very strong green tea flavor so if you aren’t a green tea lover like I am then it might not be for you.
For this recipe, I used matcha green tea powder. Matcha green tea powder is just ground green tea leaves, which means it has a very strong green tea flavor and is packed with antioxidants! In Japan, this is the powder that is used for the tea in their traditional tea ceremonies. You can find matcha powder at your local Asian market, online or at Teavana.
Green Tea Matcha Powder from the Asian Market
Green Tea Lovers Oatmeal
1/2 Cup quick oats
1 Cup freshly brewed green tea
1 Tsp. Matcha green tea powder
Handful of blueberries (optional)
1/2 Packet of Stevia or sweetener of choice (optional)
Splash of milk, almond milk or coconut milk
Brew a cup of your favorite green tea. While the tea is brewing pour oats into a microwavable bowl. Once the tea is ready, pour 1 tsp. matcha powder into the brewed green tea and stir until it is dissolved. Pour over the oats, and microwave for about a minute and a half. Top with blueberries, sweetener and a splash of milk for added creaminess.
