We love our Very Vanilla Chai Powder so much that we find all sorts of uses for it, apart from the traditional delicious drink of course!
Have it for breakfast every day with this super simple granola. If you use gluten free oats you are on track for it to be completely gluten free, or you could sub in another grain or seed of choice. Then the fruit is pretty much up to you. If you want less sweetness go with tart golden raisins or inca berries.
Add nuts, seeds to taste. Then put into mason jars, tie with ribbon and you have a few happy recipients when you gift these. Alternatively, be completely selfish and keep stored in a jar in the pantry for up to 2 months. Serve with or without dollops of yoghurt, coconut yoghurt or milk of choice.
Or better yet, come join us on the Insider Club to have extra Thermomixery each and every month! We are the leading online portal for all Thermomix recipes.
