To make 10 individual instant packets:
In a food processor, blend ½ cup of oats until powdery (this will make the powdered oats listed in the recipe below)
Combine the following into each individual ziplock sandwich bag:
¼ cup Rolled Oats
2 Tbs. Powdered Oats (directions listed above)
1/8 tsp. Salt
4 tsp. Sugar (optional)
Close the top and store in a dry place.
Microwave directions for cooking:
Empty packet into microwaveable bowl. Add 2/3 cup water or milk. Microwave 1.5 minutes; stir.
Conventional directions for cooking:
Empty packet into pan. Add ½ cup boiling water; cook and stir over heat until thickened.
Recipe taken and modified from the "Family Recipes" cookbook. I personally combine all ingredients into one large ziplock bag, then each morning measure out 1/3 cup of oatmeal for a single serving.
