Homemade Instant Oatmeal - No More Packets


We love oatmeal for breakfast. I've shown you how we serve oatmeal when it's a leisurely morning, but here is what we do on those fast get-out-of-the-house mornings.

I buy those huge round containers of quick cooking oatmeal and mix it up with this recipe. Then I store it back in the original container and another smaller tub with a scoop (because it's twice the volume it won't all fit back in the same container). When breakfast time comes, I heat water in our tea kettle (warm not hot) and set it on the table (on a trivet of course). Then the kids can scoop out some instant oatmeal and pour in some water. Voila! Instant oatmeal without the cost of those expensive packets!
