Please note, this doesn't make a lot, I just put it together this morning and stored it in a mason jar.
I figure it's about 1 Tbsp. for a package of the instant stuff.

I have been doing "instant oatmeal" for a few years now without all the fuss. In a snack bag add 1/4th cup regular oatmeal (Quaker in the big box,store brand) a sprinkle of sugar or sugar substitute, a teaspoon dry milk and some raisins or craisens or slivered almonds. To make breakfast just dump in a bowl or cup, add 1/2 cup water and microwave for about 2 minutes and let sit for another min and there ya go! I usually make up a bunch of these bags at a time so I can just grab and go in the morning! Make in a mug and the kids can eat in the car on the way to school! Believe me the oatmeal cooks up just fine! Yum!
