It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!?
Delicious warm cinnamon raisin oats on a chilly morning.
I took home a bag of our Great Harvest mix last night. It’s Oats, raisins, cinnamon, dried milk and a pinch of salt, all in one. Totally scrumptious!
Only a bit sweeter than my tongue usually likes – banana should have been left out!
Topped with Carrot Raisin Walnut muffin and sunflower buttah
And served with the new Republic of Tea Red Velvet Cake tea that Sara gave me! It’s made with rooibos and was delicious! Especially when topped with foamy milk and cinnamon
Happy Fall Holidays!
[And I’m really hoping to be able to say happy birthday to Baby Malone!]
Julie @ Peanut Butter Fingers says
the foamy milk on top of your tea has me craving a warm drink right now! i should probably turn on the heat in my house, but i’m trying to be tough. 🙂
Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table says
That is a gorgeous cup ‘o joe.
I saw a Christmas ad the other day and it disturbed me. How is it that one ad made me feel like I’m behind on Christmas shopping?! Ha.
Michelle Hunt (PeachyPalate) says
Those oats look and sound delicious! It was 4degrees here this morning, good of done with some belly warming oats 🙂
Cait's Plate says
Oooh red velvet cake tea!?!? That sounds incredible – especially with the steamed milk on top!
I keep forgetting I have those Cinnamon Raisin oats! I need to use them…like yesterday!!
Also, is it sad that this post made me incredibly excited about Christmas?? Haha
Cat @Breakfast to Bed says
did for me too!!!
Abel James says
Wooo the holidays are coming!
Claire @ Live and Love to Eat says
I love all rooibos teas – red velvet sounds decadent!
Chloe (In Fine Feather) says
Salt in the oats mixture is a good idea – I always forget about adding a pinch to mine but it really does bring the flavor out.
They make Red Velvet Cake tea?! I need to find that! I love teas that I can drink for dessert. Good call on adding the steamed milk. 🙂
Anna @ On Anna's Plate says
I was singing Christmas carols in the shower the other day…I just couldn’t resist 🙂

Hope @ With A Side Of Hope says
Cinnamon raisin oatmeal and red velvet tea?! Bring some my way! That sounds like the perfect breakfast! Happy Friday! 🙂

Katie @ Peace Love and Oats says
oh my goodness do not even say Christmas!!! I’m literally counting down the days until I get to go home for Thanksgiving! (33 in case you were curious) Lol too homesick to think about the holidays already!
Baby Malone is here! So happy! Poor girl went through a tough time there, so happy the baby is here and healthy!
The great harvest oatmeal sounds fabulous! Yum!
No heat on yet in our place, If I lived alone, it would be! My husband I swear could have it turned off all winter! He is crazy!
Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat says
Aww congrats to Emily! And I love your breakfast today… oatmeal raisin cookies are one of my favourite flavours, and cinnamon – well, let’s face it… the world can always use a bit more cinnamon. 😉
Im excited about Christmas too 😀
Elizabeth Kelley @ A Dancer In The Kitchen says
Wow! Red Velvet Rooibos Tea sounds amazing! I need to go find it asap!
Hilliary @ Happily Ever Healthy says
Red velvet cake tea! That sounds delicious!
Cat @Breakfast to Bed says
I want egg nog, gingerbread, and peppermint-STAT. It’s the most wonderful time of the freaking year and I want to put up my dang tree already. It’s going to be EPIC. I am doing an ALL SILVER tree this year. Oh yeah.
Amanda- The Nutritionist Reviews says
That tea sounds amazing! I must try it.
Gina @ Running to the Kitchen says
I’m definitely going to be on the hunt for some of that red velvet cake tea. That sounds delicious!
It makes me feel so weird to hear you talk about fall while I live in Houston and it only JUST got below 85*F this week! This morning we walked the kids to school and were attacked by mosquitoes the whole way. It finally rained here about two weeks ago and since it was so incredibly dry all year, the mosquitoes had been “hibernating” until now – they’re aggressive little buggers, too! Enjoy the fall weather! I miss it. (not a native-Houstonian)
A good breakfast to warm the tummy on a fall day!
[email protected] says
I’m going to have to search for that tea, sounds amazing!!!
Christine @ Oatmeal in my Bowl says
A carrot raisin walnut muffin sounds really good now! And red velvet cake tea? Yum!
But all I do not unfortunately have right now. 🙁
Will just settle with my Sbux Cafe Misto with 2 pumps of classic syrup and banana.
Lauren @ What Lauren Likes says
I love the looks of the warm drink! Perfect for a morning like this 🙂
Today is a great day to have a birthday! My sweet baby is turning one today!! Unfortunately, he has a fever and what is looking like a stomach bug. Ugh!! The good thing is that he doesn’t know it is his birthday and we will just celebrate another day.
I clicked the link to Baby Malone’s mama’s blog and hope for her sake he is born today!! Being overdue is no fun!
Missed you today! Hope your little one feels better soon
I’ve been contemplating that tea for a while, but since it’s a little pricey, I haven’t tried it yet! I’m glad you like it though – I think I’ll finally go out and buy some!
Happy Friday Kath. Just curious, do you add a sweetner to your tea? I use Truvia and wanted your “RD” opinion. THanks so much.
I don’t add anything. I just don’t feel that any of the sweeteners on the market are worthy of my consumption on a daily basis. I use Stevia in the Raw on occasion if I have a tea as a dessert
Thanks Kath. I appreciate your thoughts on this matter. Have a fabulous week end. <3
Isn’t Truvia just stevia?
Yes it is. So….I think it is okay to use.
~Christy @ wonderofallthings says
There’s the latte! So pretty…and rooibos is fantastic. I, too, enjoy the GH Cinn Raisin Oatmeal. 🙂
J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) says
That oatmeal mix sounds tasty! It seems Christmas is coming earlier and earlier every year. 🙁
Health Bee says
I love your breakfast photos, especially photo #5. The tea sounds delicious too.
Zoe @ loseweightandgainhealth says
We Brits are renowned tea drinkers. But tea connoisseurs do not add any milk at all as they believe it stops you tasting the delicate flavours. Most regular tea drinkers add a little milk but to my way of thinking, a tea with frothy milk is a complete no no. However, I am always open to trying new things and would like to give it a go. How do you prepare your frothy tea and does that work with any tea?
There are definitely wonderful teas that are best sipped straight to fully enjoy the flavors.
Then there are those that need a dumping of milk to taste better 🙂
I have a $2 frother from IKEA that foams the tea
Zoe @ loseweightandgainhealth says
Thank you, but I meant do you make a concentrated amount of the and add frothy milk in the same way you make a latte by adding frothy milk to an Espresso. Or do you make tea with mainly water and a little milk and then froth that?
The second! Make tea as normal. Froth about 1/4 cup milk. Dump on top of tea.
Zoe @ loseweightandgainhealth says
Thanks. I will try that tomorrow. With an egg with smoked paprika on top which sounds great.
What a delicious looking breakfast! And I am intriqued by that red velvet tea! I’m going to have to scope it out. 🙂
kathleen @ the daily crumb says
beautiful foam! and happy birthday baby malone 🙂
[email protected] Flying ONION says
Oh this looks wonderful. 😀
And here’s to hoping we can all welcome Baby Malone into the world very, very soon! 😀
On a dreary day like today, nothing sounds more appealing than a warm bowl of cinnamony oatmeal. Oh how I wish I could get my paws on a bag of GH oats. Do they sell them in all their stores? I found out there’s a bakery about 30 minutes from my house and have serious plans to get my batookus there this afternoon. Time to go bread crazy! I really hope they have Cvill Crunch bread. That’s your favorite, right?
This oatmeal looks amazing!! I received the Cville Granola and…omg…seriously dangerous. I am in LOVE! Your Cville customers sure are spoiled having your Great Harvest around! Our Great Harvest only has bread and lunch items (which is wonderful!), but it would be nice to have all of the delicious things that you guys have!!!
🙂 Glad it made it safely!
Julia H. @ The Petite Spiel says
Christmas can come as early as you like! My friend and I were just listening to Christmas music on Pandora last night while working. I might have a slight obsession with the holiday season, though…
Tiff @ Love Sweat and Beers says
Oh yum! That puts my breakfast to shame. haha
Shaun @ snackasaurusrex.com says
I’m seriously jealous…I would love some more fall/winter like weather. It’s still hot in Texas!
I can’t believe how long it took Baby Malone to get here (but he is so sweet with those beautiful lips 🙂 )! My mom was in labor with me about that long, too…
