Why pay those prices for instant oatmeal packs when you can make your own! It's easy and they are much healthier for you. I figure I can make these for .15 a packet as opposed to .52 a packet for the store bought.

Instant Oatmeal Packets

3 cups quick oats
8 sandwich baggies (be sure to save and reuse your baggies to save even more money)

Process 1 cup oats in a blender on high until powdery.

Measure into each baggie: 1/4 cup of the un-processed oats, 2 tablespoons powdered oats, and a pinch of salt and any add-ins if desired.

To serve: empty baggie into a bowl. Add 3/4 cup boiling water. Stir and let stand for 2 minutes. For creamier oatmeal add a shot of milk or cream.

Add-in ideas:

Sweetened: 2 tsp sugar (or use splenda! accordingly)

Brown Sugar & Cinnamon: 2 tsp brown sugar and 1/4 tsp cinnamon

Brown Sugar & Raisins: 2 tsp brown sugar and 1 Tbl raisins

Cinnamon & Apples: 2 tsp sugar, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, and 2 Tbl chopped dried apples

Bananas & Cream: 1 Tbl non-dairy coffee creamer and 2 Tbl dried bananas

Maple Brown Sugar: 2 tsp brown sugar and 1 1/2 tsp maple pancake syrup

Do you add anything to your oatmeal that I didn't mention here? I'm always looking for new ideas, so leave me a comment.
