Instant Oatmeal Mix Recipe

You’ll Need:
3 cups Quick-Cooking Oats
Salt
8 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 the 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. This creates a homemade oat flour, which imparts the perfect texture in these homemade instant oatmeal packets.

Put the following ingredients into each ziploc baggie:

1/4 cup un-powdered oats
2 Tbsp. powdered oats
1/8 tsp. salt

If you’d like variations- see below.

To Use:
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.

Homemade Instant Oatmeal Mix Variations:

If you happen to have a food dehydrator and dry your own fruits, you can use them as delicious additions to these instant oatmeal mixes.

If not, we recommend using freeze-dried fruits, such as Simply Nature which we found at our local Aldi location.

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

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

Blueberries &
Cream Oatmeal – To each packet add 1 Tbsp. non-dairy coffee creamer and 2 Tbsp. dried blueberries

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

Confetti Oatmeal– To each packet, add 1 tsp. decorative cake/cookie sprinkles- this is fun to do seasonally with the kids adding Christmas Sprinkles, or Halloween Monster Sprinkles.

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.

Fun Fruit Oatmeal – To each packet, add 6 or 7 pieces of ‘fruit snack’ type dehydrated fruit cut into bite sized pieces. Mango and coconut go really well together!

Instant Oatmeal Tips-n-Tricks

I like to use the small snack size zip-seal baggies for these because they’re easy to store, but if you’re trying to make mornings even faster to get the kids out the door, you can put the mixes in half-pint mason jars and all the kids have to do is add hot water and set the lid on top for a few minutes, or add cold water and put it in the microwave for a minute and a half without a lid! Stir, and enjoy.

Use caution as the jars will be hot.
