      Make Your Own InstantOatmeal At Home-Lots of Flavors

      * 3 cups Quick-Cooking Oats

      * Salt

      * Small sized Zip Baggies

      Put 1/2 cup oats in a blender and blend on high until powdery. Set
      aside in a small bowl, and repeat procedure with an additional 1/2 cup
      oats. If you’re using a food processor, you can do the 1 cup of oats
      in one batch.

      Put the following ingredients into each zip baggie: 1/4
      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.

      Variations:

      Apple-Cinnamon Oatmeal- To each packet add 1 Tbsp. sugar, 1/4 tsp.
      cinnamon, and 2 Tbsp. chopped dried apples.

      Sweetened Oatmeal- To each packet add 1 Tbsp. sugar or 1 packet
      ‘Equal’ artificial sweetener.

      Brown Sugar/Cinnamon Oatmeal – To each packet add 1 Tbsp. brown sugar
      & 1/4 tsp. cinnamon

      Oatmeal w/Raisins & Brown Sugar – To each packet add 1 Tbsp. packed
      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.

      S’More Oatmeal – add 6 miniature marshmallows and 1 Tbsp. Milk
      Chocolate Chips to each packet.

      Cookies n Cream Oatmeal – add 1 crushed Oreo cookie and 1 Tbsp.
      non-dairy coffee creamer to each packet.

      Exploding Oatmeal – add 1 tsp. sugar, and 1/2 tsp. ‘Pop Rocks’ candy
      to each packet.

      This one is fun for celebration days, such as birthdays.

      Bart-man Oatmeal – add 2 Tbsp. ‘Butterfinger B.B’s’ candies to each
      packet.

      I made this today (brown sugar & cinnamon) and it is amazing! thanks so much!

    • #405733

      OM…I have been looking for these! Thank you !!!! 🙂

    • #405735

      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!

    • #405757

      What a great ‘keeper’. Big thanks!

    • #405816

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

      Thank you

    • #405817

      That should save me lots of money! My whole family eats the packets for breakfast.

    • #405759

      Tried the confetti one this morning…YUM! Thanks 🙂

    • #406121

      Thank you, Thank you! Sounds yummy!

    • #406122

      breakfast is a on-your-own meal at my house. These will be great to have on hand and should give my dh another option. Great ideas ladies.

      Keep em comin!!!!

      i was thinking the same thing – about making it a gift basket – my bf eats oatmeal all the time and some of these sound like fun and you cant buy some of those.

      im wondering what kind of container i could put them in so they look nice, besides ziplocs… maybe saran wrap with a bow?

      party favor bags work really good for this and they are decorative, just make sure you twist them tight so nothing spills out of the bag.

      Thank you for this recipe. I made the maple and brown sugar variation. I get about 7 servings for this, which works good for a week.

      My wife and I take these to work as an afternoon snack and I add 1/4 c walnuts as well for some protein.

      I can’t wait for snack time tomorrow!

      this is a fabulous idea, especially for camping and such. I am so going to make these. I have a dehydrator so I am always drying fruit. Why have I not thought of this before? Thanks a bunch!

      I finally made these this morning. My 3 kids went throught almost a box of quacker instant oatmeal on saturday alone. 2 pkgs each for breakfast & one later in the day for a snack. I had just bought that box too!

      This recipe turns out so good I’ll vever buy the box stuff again! I’m on a new mission so see what else I can make myself.

      I love Budget 101 !!!!!!
