Do any of you buy and eat those prepackaged oatmeal packets? My kids eat oatmeal, but like the ease of dumping a packet into a bowl, adding water, and microwaving it. The only thing better to them is if mom makes their oatmeal. Which doesn't happen often.
So, I like to make up little baggies of oatmeal for them. It doesn't take much time and it is so much cheaper than buying the premade ones from the store.
Follow along now as I show you how to make your very own oatmeal packets.
First, assemble your ingredients. I use: oatmeal (not quick oats), sugar, cinnamon, powdered milk, and oat flour. To make oat flour, I put my oats into a blender or baby food maker and blend until powdered.
Next I take a sandwich baggie and add the ingredients and close.
Here is my recipe. Sorta. I vary amounts some.
I sprinkle the cinnamon into the oat flour and mix well.
1/4c oat flour
1T powdered milk
When you are ready to eat, just add water to cover the mixture in your bowl and stick it into the microwave for 1 minute. I also add in craisins, raisins, apple pieces, or any other bits of yummy that look good to me.
And there you have it. Homemade oatmeal packets.
