Instant Oatmeal
3 cups quick-cooking oats
salt
8 small zip baggies

In a blender, blend 1/2 cup oats on high until powdery. Set aside in a small bowl and repeat procedure with an additional 1/2 cup oats. If you’re using a food processor, you can blend 1 cup of oats in one batch. Put the following ingredients into each zip baggie: 1/4 cup un-powdered oats, 2 tablespoons powdered oats, and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Store in an airtight container.
To serve: Empty packet 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.

Variations:
– Apple-Cinnamon Oatmeal: To each packet add 1 tablespoon sugar, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, and 2 tablespoons chopped dried apples.
– Brown Sugar/Cinnamon Oatmeal: To each packet add 1 tablespoon brown sugar and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon.
– Oatmeal with Raisins and Brown Sugar: To each packet add 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar and 1 tablespoon raisins.
– Health Nut Oatmeal: To each packet add 2 tablespoons wheat germ.
– Fruit and Cream Oatmeal: To each packet add 1 tablespoon non-dairy coffee creamer and dried fruit.
– Confetti Oatmeal: To each packet, add 1 teaspoon decorative ice cream/cookie sprinkles.
– S’mores Oatmeal: Add miniature marshmallows and 1 tablespoon milk chocolate chips to each packet.
– Cookies and Cream Oatmeal: Add 1 crushed Oreo cookie and 1 tablespoon non-dairy coffee creamer to each packet. — Ashe, Florida

PostSubject: Applesauce tip   Sat Mar 10, 2012 4:45 am

I make homemade applesauce every few weeks. To store the applesauce, I pour it into ice cube trays and freeze it, then I store it in Ziploc bags (easier to thaw than having one huge chunk of apple ice). One morning, I ran out of regular ice cubes, which my kids use to cool off their oatmeal. I tossed in an applesauce ice cube with just a little cinnamon sugar, and it was an instant hit! They request it that way often! — Sarah, Illinois

http://www.onegoodthingbyjillee.com/2012/10/the-secret-to-making-homemade-instant-oatmeal-packets.html

So here is my version of Homemade Instant Oatmeal “Packets”:
adapted from Coffee Break With Liz and Kate

Ingredients:

10 cups of quick oats (about 3/4 of a large tub of oats)
2 teaspoons salt
1-2 cups brown sugar (depending on how sweet you like your oatmeal)
1 cup non-dairy creamer
snack-sized plastic baggies

Directions:

Put 7 cups of the oats into a large bowl.
Blend the remaining 3 cups of oats in a blender until powdery, then add to the 7 cups of oats.
Add salt, brown sugar, and creamer to the oats. Stir until well mixed.
Measure 1/2 cup of the oatmeal mixture into each snack-sized plastic baggie and seal.
Makes approximately 24 servings.
