Those individual oatmeal packets are great on a busy morning. Oatmeal is so healthy and satisfying. Those packets can be expensive unless they are on sale and you have a coupon. Here is a very inexpensive way to make your own oatmeal packets. I love it because it is easy and the options are endless with oatmeal.
CREATE AN OATMEAL PACKET
2 cups quick-cooking oats, unpowdered
1 cup quick-cooking oats, powdered
8 plastic sandwich bags
Put 1 cup of the oats into a food processor and powder.
Put ¼ cup unpowdered oats, 2 Tbsp powdered oats, and little bit of salt into each bag.
Store in an airtight container.
Empty packet into a bowl.
Add ¾ cup boiling water.
Stir and let stand for 2 minutes.
Apple Cinnamon – 1 Tbsp sugar, ¼ tsp cinnamon, and 2 Tbsp chopped dried apple
Sweetened – 1 Tbsp sugar
Cinnamon Spice – 1 Tbsp sugar, ¼ tsp cinnamon, and 1/8 tsp nutmeg
