Ingredients

How to make it

  • In food processor or similar piece of equipment, pulse 1/2 of the oats(more or less depending on what consistency you like your oatmeal), with the salt
  • Add equal amount of the whole oats to the blended ones, then add your additions/flavorings, as above, in a bowl or into the airtight containers. See Photo
  • When ready to eat, add about 1 cup(more or less by 1T or so at a time depending on your dried ingredients) boiling water to bowl.
  • Stir :)
  • **remember, this is a guideline recipe, only...just an informative one to letcha know the basics of making your own instant oatmeal. Play around with it and see if you can come up with your own masterpiece! My photos are of 1 bowl with the ingredients to make about 1 serving of Brown Sugar Cinnamon Oatmeal, and, the finished bowl :)

    My favorite is the maple and brown sugar. If anyone knows how to get that flavor without putting maple syrup in it, I'd love to know. Just shoot me a message. Thanks!

    Great idea! My daughter loves this stuff. Now she is at college and this would be so much easier to make for her and cheaper too. Thanks!

    Awesome! I eat instant oatmeal a lot at work, but I don't like that I don't know what's in it, and it's expensive. I've always thought about making my own, but never played with it. Thanks for the great recipe and ideas! Now I can have it just the way I want all the time! Five forks! - Natalie
