In a effort to not buy so much processed foods I made my own oatmeal mix. Super easy. Hubby said its thicker then the instant packets.
In a blender blend 2 Cups oatmeal to a powder. In a large bowl combine the 2 cups blended oatmeal (make sure its quick oats) and add 6 more cups oats. (NOT blended) . Add 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup Cinnamon, 1/2 cup Sugar. Blend well. At this point you can bag it up and use or you can add mix ins. I added dried blueberries to some of mine. You can add cranberries, dried banana slices. . .etc. whatever! Place in ziploc bags 1/4 cup of mix . Seal.Can store up to 1 month.
