Make Your Own Instant Oatmeal Packets
I used my favorite items, quick-cooking organic oats, demerara sugar, and cinnamon. I measured 1/3 cup of oats, 1 T sugar, and a little more than a pinch of cinnamon per bag. I measured each of the ingredients and poured them into snack size baggies. I added sliced almonds to a separate bag because I want to add them after the oatmeal has cooked.
When you are ready to make your oatmeal, add 2/3-3/4 cups water or milk (I like coconut milk), and microwave for 1-2 minutes. For me, oatmeal is one of those strange textured foods, so cook yours to your favorite texture preference.
Add your favorite garnishes after cooking. I'm using sliced almonds but my daughter suggested raisins or dried blueberries. Total cost $2.54 for 20 baggies of breakfast!
