Homemade Instant Oatmeal

Homemade Instant Oatmeal

(8 servings)    Printable Version
  • 3 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 8 sandwich-size plastic baggies
Crumb one cup of the oats in your blender until powdery.

In each plastic baggy, combine 2 Tablespoons of the powdered oats, 1/4 cup unprocessed oats and
1/8 teaspoon salt.

Consider adding some of these extras (per bag):
- 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon white sugar
- 1 Tablespoon raisins
- 1 Tablespoon chocolate chips

To serve: Empty contents of one bag 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.


Save some money, have some fun and eat good!

Mr Breakfast would like to thank BethH for this recipe.

This was very good and useful! I make lots and keep them for when I'm in a hurry in the morning or when I want a snack late at night. Thanks for the recipe!

This was a very good recipe, although when I doubled it per bag, the amount of cinnamon was too strong - so cutting back is my suggestion :) Thanks!
