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)
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.
