Instant Oatmeal

Instant Oatmeal
::3 cups quick oats
::1/2 cup packed brown sugar
::1/4 cup banachips
::1/4 raisins (but I used cherries)
Dump everything together in a bowl
mix well.
Put in a closed container.
Take 1/2 cup put in a microwave safe dish.
Just cover with water.
Cook for 30 seconds, stir, cook an additional 25 seconds.
I was thrilled when I found a recipe for making my own instant oatmeal.
It's not all that exciting, but since I'll eat oatmeal for breakfast most days it's a huge savings.
and I can put whatever dried fruit I wish in.
If you make your own - let me know what flavors you enjoy.


  1. What a great recipe. Great for those mornings when you are in a rush and want oatmeal. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I eat oatmeal most days, too. I had no idea you could use the quick oats mixed with your own stuff! I love cinnamon and apples, so I might just try this!

  3. I'll pass on this one. I can't get past the look of it.

  4. I love oatmeal in the morning! I think the traditional packets are way too sweet so I'll try this and adjust the sweetness to suit me. Thanks so much!

  5. I'm going to have to share this with the hubby. He eats instant oatmeal every morning.

  6. Well I'll be trying this recipe. The college DD will like this too. Thanks for sharing.


I appreciate you coming to see me. It may take me a bit to publish your comment - but I will get to them by the end of every day. If you leave a way for me to get back to you, I will. Thanks for taking the time to comment and share your opinions. g
