When I saw this recipe on Money Saving Mom, I knew it was for us! My kids love oatmeal & can now make their own for breakfast. They had fun adding sweetener to the packs (& other goodies they like as well).
We added cinnamon sugar to some, chocolate chips and raisins to others.
We took some with us when we went to Great Wolf Lodge last week & cooked them in the microwave in our room.
Homemade Instant Oatmeal Packets
To each bag add:
- 1/2 cup instant oatmeal
- 1 TBS sugar (we used cinnamon sugar)
- cinnamon, raisins, chocolate chips or other mix-ins
Store in airtight container or freezer for up to 3 months.
Pour instant oatmeal packet into a bowl and add 3/4 cup water. Microwave on high for 1-2 minutes, until cooked. Stir and serve. You can also cook in a saucepan on the stove, if you prefer.
