Make Your Own Instant Oatmeal for Pennies!
Save money by making your own packets of oatmeal. Quick & Easy! Measure 1/2 cup of regular oatmeal (get the thick kind if you can find it but regular works good too). Do not use the instant. Add 1 Tlb. raisins or chopped nuts of your choice and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon (or to your taste). Seal in plastic sandwich or snack size baggies. When ready to eat, simply empty package in DEEP bowl with 2/3 c. milk. Place bowl on plate or saucer as it will make it easier to clean if it boils over. Cook in microwave for 3 min. Remove & add 1 Tlb. brown sugar (I like to use the Splenda Brown Sugar) or add to your own taste. Add enough milk to cool it down & make it creamy to your liking. Please note I do not add salt but if you want you can add 1/4 tsp to your mix. This is a very healthy breakfast & so easy to fix!
