My family loves oatmeal but they don't like to wait on it. They like convenience. I hate buying the boxes with 6-12 packets in them for $3-$4.00, especially when my hubby or boys eat 2 packets at a time. Here is how you can make simple and quick Instant Oatmeal packets for your family.
Instant Oatmeal Packets
For each packet you will need:
1 Snack-sized baggie
3 tsp. of brown sugar or 2 packet of sweetener
a pinch of salt
2 tsp. Instant powdered milk
2/3 c. Quick oats
1 tsp. Cinnamon
Using the above ingredients, will pack a double packet (what my family generally eats per sitting).
The ingredients you will need.
If your family normally gets full on a single packet, then just use 1 1/2 tsp. of brown sugar or 1 sweetener, 1 tsp. of powdered milk, 1/2 c. Quick oats and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and just 1/3 c. hot water.
I begin by writing on one side of the baggie the directions: "Pour contents of baggie into a bowl. Add 2/3 c. hot-to-boiling water and stir. Let sit for 1 minute". On the other side of the baggie, I just put the flavor combo: "Cinnamon and sweetener". You can add in raisins or other items to suit your taste.
Here are the completed packets.
NOTE: If your family normally gets full on a single packet, then just use 1 1/2 tsp. of brown sugar or 1 sweetener, 1 tsp. of powdered milk, 1/2 c. Quick oats and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and just 1/3 c. hot water.
