My oldest girl just loves these Homemade Instant Oatmeal Packets, and she requests it almost every morning. She actually prefers the homemade over the store-bought packets, which is fine by me because it’s less expensive to make it homemade. I added in chocolate chips this last time, but she preferred it without the chocolate chips.
Homemade Instant Oatmeal Packets
To each ziploc bag add the following:
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon or less cinnamon
- chocolate chips or raisins (optional)
Store in an airtight container or freeze for up to three months. To serve, pour the instant oatmeal packet into a bowl and add 3/4 cup water or milk. Microwave on high for 1-2 minutes until cooked. Stir and serve.
