Homemade Instant Oatmeal Mix

(5 servings)

  • 5 cups instant oatmeal
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 cup raisins (or other dried fruit)
  • 3 tablespoons dry milk powder
  • 5 ziplock bags (optional)
In a large bowl combine oatmeal, brown sugar, dry fruit, and dry milk. Transfer ingredients to an airtight container or jar (or ziplock bags) to store until ready to use.

To serve: Place 1 cup of mixture and 1/2 to 3/4 cup boiling water (depending how thick you like your oatmeal) into a cereal bowl. Let stand until thickened.

This is a GREAT way to cut down on the sugar that's in those instant oatmeal packets. You can package it up into individual serving sizes in plastic ziploc snack bags! Great to take to the office or for kids to make!

Mr Breakfast would like to thank MichiganDan for this recipe.
