Homemade Instant Oatmeal Mix

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

Ingredients:

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.

Sorry I don't have a picture to share! I never have time in the mornings to snap a photo before everyone scarfs theirs down. :)
