I got this recipe from my recipe club, Cooking With Faith. It's great! You'll never want to buy those little packets again!
Basic Instant Oatmeal
2C Quick cooking oatmeal (not instant!)
1/2 C non-fat milk powder
1/2 C craisins
1/3 C packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon
1/4 teaspoons nutmeg
Mix all ingredients thoroughly.
To serve: Mix 1/2 cup of mix with 1/2 cup water and microwave at 70% power for 2-3 minutes. You can use dried apples and apple spice instead of craisins and cinnamon. Or maybe mini chocolate chips and dried cherries, even.
