Instant oatmeal packages can be pricey and have added ingredients that are unnecessary. This is a quick and easy way to make your own!
Homemade Instant Oatmeal Mix
6 cups oats
1 1/3 cup dry milk
1 cup dried fruit
1 tbs cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cloves
Combine. Store in an airtight container for up to 6 months.
To prepare: Shake mix. Boil 1/2 cup water or milk. Stir in 1/2 cup of the mix. Reduce heat, cook about 1 minute or until desired consistency. Add more milk or water if desired. Sprinkle with brown sugar if you like it sweet or stir in a little pure maple syrup.
