For several years now I have been saying that I wanted to make my own instant oatmeal packets. Years now. And finally, thanks to our dear friend PINTEREST, I have found a recipe that I like and have tried it and have fulfilled a dream! Yay me! There are many variations to the basic recipe, but I chose the fruit and cream version. I have a lot of fruit in my food storage that I want to use and this is a perfect way to do that. I used peach this time, but next time I am trying mango. Yeah, that fruit.
3 cups quick-cooking oats
Small (snack-size) zip baggies
Non Dairy Creamer (I used the non-fat and it is delicious!)
Dried or dehydrated fruit
1. Put 1 cup oats in a food processor and process until powdery. Set aside in a small bowl.
2. Put the following in each baggie: 1/4 cup un-powdered oats, 2 T. powdered oats, 1/8 t. salt,
1 T. creamer, 1 T. Sugar, 2 T. fruit.
3. Store baggies in an air-tight container.
4. To serve: Empty packet into a bowl and add 3/4 cup boiling water. Stir and let stand for
2 minutes. For thicker oatmeal, use less water--for thinner, use more water.
