Instant Oatmeal Packs

***Recipe edited to correct the amount of oats from 8 cups to 3 cups. Sorry everyone! Thanks Lindsay for pointing that out :)***
Much more economical then buying the boxed packs in the store, and you can make them bigger and with whatever flavour you want!! And as a bonus they taste better! You can make them healthy, unhealthy, organic, non organic...the choice is yours :)

3 Cups Quick Oats
Flavourings: Brown Sugar, Cinnamon, Dried Apples, Milk Powder, Wheat Germ, Raisins etc.

Need: Ziptop bags

Process 1 Cup of oats in a food processor (you can use a blender, just process less at a time), on high until powdery.

Place the following into each baggie:

PLAIN Oatmeal
1/4 Cup Oats
2 Tbsp. Powdered Oats

Seal and store. To serve empty packet into bowl, add 3/4 cup of boiling water. Stir and let stand for 2 minutes. Or add milk or water and pop into the microwave until cooked, add additional milk/water to thin.

Sweetened: Add 1 Tbsp. Sugar
Brown Sugar/Cinnamon: Add 1 Tbsp. Brown Sugar and 1/4 Tsp. Cinnamon
Raisins & Brown Sugar: Add 1 Tbsp. Brown Sugar and 1 Tbsp. Raisins
Apple-Cinnamon: Add 1 Tbsp. Sugar, 1/4 Tsp. Cinnamon and 2 Tbsp. Chopped Dried Apples

Fruit & Milk: Add 1 Tbsp. Milk Powder and 2 Tbsp. Dried Fruit
Health Nut: Add 2 Tbsp. any kind of wheat germ & 1 Tbsp. Ground Flax Seed
Raisins & Walnut: Add 1 Tbsp. Raisins and 1/2 Tbsp. Walnut Pieces

Use your imagination! Whatever combination you can think of, you can have :)

Note: I double the recipe above for each baggie because my husband and son are never happy with one pack!

  1. This is ironic... I was just talking about this idea with a friend this week!!
    She makes these for her husband all the time, but never grinds the oats.
    Great idea!! :)
