Homemade Instant Oatmeal (packets)

Homemade Instant Oatmeal..

Uh, Wow..You can find a ton of recipes for homemade instant oatmeal on the Internet..
For the most part they are all very similar.
  A few differences here and there.
Since I had everything I decided to use on hand, I gave it a try.

Ingredients for each 'baggie':

1/4 cup whole wheat quick cook oats,
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon powdered milk
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt

You just get your ingredients out, and put them in a baggie, close em up.. and there ya go..
so easy! (I keep ours in the fridge.. not sure if ya have to - it's just what i do.)

The result..

To cook..
Get out a baggie, pour it in a microwave safe bowl,
add a little water or milk (approx. 1/2 cup give or take - depends how thick you like your oatmeal),
(you can always add to it - can't take it out...) :0)
stick it in the microwave.. cook for a minute or so (depends on your microwave)..
For us, we add 1/2 cup water.. cook 1 minute..
in my opinion.. it is kinda bland,
but that is where the fun comes in.. you can get creative and add whatever you want to it..
fruit, raisins, honey, more sugar, more cinnamon, whatever you like.. :0)

Super simple.. :0)
