Homemade Instant Oatmeal

(8 servings)

  • 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!
