    * 3 cups Quick-Cooking Oats

    cup un-powdered oats, 2 Tbsp. powdered oats, and 1/8 tsp. salt. Store
    in an airtight container.

    To serve: Empty packet into a bowl. Add 3/4 cup boiling water. Stir
    and let stand for 2 minutes. For thicker oatmeal, use less water - for
    thinner oatmeal, use more water.

    cinnamon, and 2 Tbsp. chopped dried apples.

    brown sugar and 1 Tbsp. raisins.

    Health Nut Oatmeal - To each packet add 2 Tbsp. any kind of wheat germ

    Fruit & Cream Oatmeal - To each packet add 1 Tbsp. non-dairy coffee
    creamer and 2 Tbsp. dried fruit

    Fun Fruit Oatmeal - To each packet, add 6 or 7 pieces of 'fruit snack'
    type dehydrated fruit.

    Confetti Oatmeal - To each packet, add 1 tsp. decorative cake/cookie
    sprinkles.

    Chocolate Chips to each packet.

    I don't know how I missed this one. These would do nicely in a gift basket. Grew up on Oatmeal, and still like it. but don't take the time to eat much of it. Thanks....

    I can not keep enough of these on hand. Seems like as soon as I make some up everyone in the house has ate them up! These are great!

    my kids say they don't like "real "oatmeal, only the packets. This should be great for them.

    Thank you
