Homemade “Instant” Oatmeal

Homemade “Instant” Oatmeal Mix

 (from Angie’s Pangies)

6 cups quick-cooking oats
1 1/3 cups nonfat dry milk powder
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 cup chopped dried fruit, optional

In a large bowl, combine the ingredients. If you prefer a smoother, less chewy oatmeal grind the mixture in a blender or food processor until the oatmeal is cut into smaller pieces. The longer you allow the oatmeal to process, the smoother the oatmeal will be. Leaving some larger pieces will give it some texture.

Store in an airtight container, or a zippered bag in a cool dry place for up to 6 months.

To prepare oatmeal: Shake mix well and measure 1/2 dry oatmeal into bowl, add 2/3 cups water, and microwave for 2-3 minutes.
Or on a stove top, in a saucepan, bring water to a boil; slowly stir in 1/2 cup mix.
Cook and stir over medium heat for 1 minute.

    Thank you for having the recipe up at the top. I was looking for the instant oatmeal recipe, and I had to always go looking and looking and reading and reading. Yours was quick and simple and the best recipe I found.

    Terrific, quick and easy recipe. My family loves it. Thank you for sharing this. Doesn’t get any easier than this for breakfast.

    FINALLY made this oatmeal….and I must say it is yummy! Perfect to eat alone, as Angie showed, or slice a banana into it after nuking. I’ve found that 1.30 minutes works well on my microwave–you could also stir in fresh fruit, since it ’tis the season (it’s August). Plus–I don’t have to cringe over cereal prices now. And I’m EATING MY OATMEAL (thank you, cholesterol commercials)

  4. Flavorsome recipe! ;-). I enjoy reading your site. Where did you download this lovely homepage design from? Regards from sidney.

  5. Thanks. The usual instant oatmeal recipes tend to get boring. Here’s how you can add Asian flavors to your oatmeal.
