Chai-Spiced Fruit Compote

I always have the same thing for breakfast, a bowl of cheerios. It is getting really boring. I decided to try and change it up a bit!

This chai-spiced fruit compote looked like a perfect change up.

I made it ahead so it would be quick and easy in the morning.
It really filled me up and it tastes amazing!

What you need,

1¾ cups water
2 chai tea bags (I used TAZO)
3 tbsp. honey
½ cup dried apricots, chopped into quarters
½ cup dried pitted prunes, chopped into quarters
½ cup golden raisins
1/3 cup sliced almonds, toasted
Plain Greek yogurt for serving

In a medium saucepan bring water to a boil over high heat. Turn off the heat and add the tea bags. Let it steep for 5 minutes. Remove the tea bags and discard.

Add the honey and chopped dried fruit to the tea. Bring to a boil over high heat.
Reduce heat to medium low and let it simmer for 18-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Liquid will thicken and become syrupy.

Transfer to a bowl, cover and chill for 4 hours or up to a week.

Serve over the yogurt and sprinkle with the toasted almonds.

This is such a great breakfast. The warm spices with the smooth creamy yogurt, and the crunch of the almonds is perfection!
