Chai Spiced Sweet Potato Bread

The leaves have changed and the air is crisp and I couldn’t be happier.  Fall is in full swing in my little Connecticut town and I am fully embracing it in all its golden glory.  While everyone is going nuts for pumpkin spice, my heart lies with the bold flavors of chai and (much easier to slice) sweet potatoes.  With whole grain oats this is the perfect filling and hearty breakfast. I like mine with some cream cheese and a steaming cup of coffee on the side.
