Frugal Oatmeal

I was buying the storebrand instant oatmeal, or Quaker when a coupon was available, but now our family is cutting back on sugar. I buy the largest container of store brand Quick Oats, add my own cinnamon or chopped up apple, walnuts, etc, whatever you like to add. I put all the ingredients in a microwave safe bowl add water and cook, put some low fat milk on it and enjoy. If you don't have time for breakfast at home, put the ingredients in a container and add water at work, then microwave. You just may have to do without the milk unless there is a small refrigerator at the office.

You can also used strawberry jam to flavor it or dried fruit. There was a post that someone put on here awhile back telling of many other flavorings to add

I take this to work a lot in the winter we have a microwave and a fridge so easy for me to do. And if you're ingredients are all dry ones. I put mine in a baggy to transport because I have a large coffee cup I keep at work (01/19/2007)

If you are taking it to work to microwave it there, just add a little powdered milk to your mix and when you add water to cook, you'll have milk. (01/19/2007)

I use snack zip-loc bags to store my oatmeal mixture; then I add the coffee creamer in the small individual packages as the milk. I have an area in our classroom at school where i have a microwave for coffee/tea, etc.; It always has coffee creamer on it and sugar. I can keep 5 bags of oatmeal mixture in a basket under the microwave cart. I use a medium size coffee cup to prepare the oatmeal in; clean-up is a breeze. (01/19/2007)

Mix in a microwavable bowl 1/2 cup quick oatmeal, 1/2 cup water, 1 teaspoon of brown sugar. Cook on high for 2 minutes. Pour any of the new flavored creamers on top. I usually use enough to cover the surface of the cooked oatmeal. Then add some milk if you like. This is delicious and quick. I really like the southern butter pecan creamer by International Delight. You can also use 1/4 cup oatmeal and 1/4 cup grape-nuts. I add 1 teaspoon chopped pecans and 1 teaspoon raisins. (01/19/2007)
