Instant Oatmeal recipe

I love that I can have a warm breakfast available for my kids on colder mornings and I know exactly what  they are eating. And even my younger kids can make this themselves. 

 

 Strawberries’n’cream or Peaches’n’cream Instant oatmeal 

(our family triples this recipe to make it worth our time to make)

  • 3  cups quick oats, divided (1 cup ground up, 2 cups regular)
  • 1 cup dried milk
  • 1/2 t cinnamon
  • 1/2 – 3/4 cups sugar or  powdered Splenda (to taste) you can also alter the flavor and use sugar cane or brown sugar. I try and use less sugar.
  • 1 t salt
  • 3/4 cup freeze dried peaches or strawberries (broken into small bits)

In a large bowl, stir together all ingredients until throroughly blended.

We store it in a large recycled gallon size pickle jar with a 1/2 cup scoop.

To serve, scoop 1/2 cup of oatmeal mixture and add desired amount of hot water. Stir until desired consistency.  Some of my kids like their oatmeal thick and other like it very runny.
