Instant Oatmeal Mix

Usually I'm not a big oatmeal eater, however; when I saw this mix on Mommy's Kitchen I decided I needed to try it.  Oh my goodness, it's a lot better than the instant oatmeal you get at the grocery store.  I think I like it because I can add what I want to it so it's unique to my likings.

Stars of the "recipe":

  • 2 and 1/4 cup of instant oatmeal

  • 1/3 cup dried milk powder

  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar

  • 1 to 2 tsp of cinnamon  (I added more because I love the taste of cinnamon.)

  • 1 cup of raisins or any other dried fruit (I used blueberry flavored craisins in mine.  I also added chopped pecans to my mix.)


  1. Mix all of the ingredients together and store in a airtight container.

  2. Label the container with the directions on how to prepare the oatmeal.

To Prepare OatMeal:

  1. Scoop 1/2 cup oatmeal into a bowl and mix with 1/2 cup water. You may need a bit more water if you like you oatmeal thinner.

  2. Microwave on high for 1 minute stir and enjoy.
