Homemade Oatmeal Packets

I eat oatmeal almost every day. It's filling and a good for you food. I've tried many different types of instant oatmeal packets in the past few years and haven't found one that I really like. 

Last week, I read this post from Andrea who blogs at Simple Organized Living and decided to give it a try.

Here are all of my tools (minus the salt):

This is the simplest way to make breakfast! Just dump everything in a big bowl and mix.

The finished product 12-1/2 cup servings. 

Tomorrow, I'll try my first pack and I hope it turns out as tasty as I think it will.  


  • 5 cups Instant Oats
  • 2 cups Cranberries & Raisins, mixed
  • 1/3 cup Non-fat Dried Milk
  • 2/3 cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Salt


Stir all ingredients together and place in containers. When you're ready to eat, add water and microwave until desired consistency is reached.
