Oatmeal is yummy, and is a go to breakfast for a lot of people, but not everyone has the time to sit and wait for steel cut oats to cook on the stove at 6am when they’re running late for work.  The instant oatmeal you can buy at the store usually has the second ingredient listed as sugar and even the plain instant oatmeal has added caramel coloring, which is no bueno.  This recipe will give you something healthy that is also quick and easy to prepare.  Add any extras you may like, but remember to keep it healthy! For my version I used reduced sugar craisins and chopped almonds and it turned out delicious!

Instant Oatmeal Base

{makes enough for 24 individual packets}

Ingredients:

9 cups old fashioned oats

3 cups quick cooking oats

2 teaspoons salt

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Measure 9 cups of old fashioned oats onto a large cookie sheet and toast in the oven for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. While these oats are toasting, put the 3 cups of quick oats in a blender and pulse until roughly ground. Stir together both kinds of oats and salt in a large bowl.

Add any dry mix-ins you want and then either store in an airtight container or measure 1/2 cup servings into individual ziplock bags.

When you are ready to eat, just add enough hot water to reach your desired consistency {usually around 3/4 cup} and stir.  Enjoy!
