For each oatmeal packet:


  • Add all ingredients to a plastic baggie or small tupperware, and store on the shelf for up to 6 months.
  • When you are ready to eat, add 1/2 to 3/4 cup hot water to the contents of the oatmeal packet in a bowl. Allow to sit for one minute, stir, and eat!


Don't have quick oats? You can also use regular old fashioned oats, which will have more of a crunch when hot water is added.
Don't want to use sugar? Leave it out, and add honey or maple syrup after adding hot water to the oats.
