A great make ahead safe menu option, to speed up your morning routine! Or, if you have children a great option to make over night visits with friends/relatives a little more simple. Each packet costs pennies!
Ingredients & Materials Per Packet:
- 1/4 Cup Quick Cooking Oats
- 1 Tbsp Brown Sugar (a little less if you don't like it as sweet)
- Dash of Cinnamon
- Desired # of Ziplock bags or Small Reusable Containers
Additional ingredients at time of oatmeal cooking:
- 1/2 Water
- Soymilk to thin and make creamy after cooked
To Make Packets:
Add 1/4 Cup quick cooking oats to each ziplock bag. Next add 1 Tbsp Brown Sugar to each bag. Then finish off each bag with a dash of cinnamon, zip up them up and you are done! Store in a dry place.
To Cook Packets:
Add one packet to a microwave safe bowl, and add 1/2 of Water, stir well. Microwave for 1 1/2-2 Mins. Remove from microwave, and thin to your liking with Soy milk. (Tip: If you are making some to send with children on overnights, I've found it helpful for their caretaker if you write the simple cooking instructions on the baggie before you fill them)
Want to Jazz things up? Try adding raisins, or other diced dried fruit to your packets. Or to jazz up prepared oatmeal, try adding a teaspoon of Sunbutter & Banana slices! Adding a little extra protein and nutrition :)
