- 3 cups quick oats
- 1 tsp salt
- 8 sandwich-size plastic zipper top baggies
Process 1 cup of oats (in batches if necessary) in blender or food processor until powdered. In each plastic bag, combine 2 Tbsp. of the powdered oats, 1/4 cup unprocessed oats, and 1/8 tsp salt.
To serve: Empty contents of one bag into a bowl. Add 3/4 cup boiling water. Stir and let stand for 2 minutes. For thicker oatmeal, use less water - for thinner oatmeal, use more water.
Stir-ins (per bag):
- 1 Tbsp. white or brown sugar
- 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
- 2 Tbsp. chopped dried fruit
- 1 Tbsp. raisins
- 1 Tbsp. chocolate chips
- 1 Tbsp. dry milk (for creamy oatmeal)
- 1 Tbsp. granola
