Rebecca’s Instant Cinnamon Oatmeal

An easy way to make individual instant oatmeal packets for a fast and hearty breakfast. The kids love to help! Add raisins, honey, or fruit as toppings if you like! My family of 7 will triple the recipe and put all the filled baggies into a gallon size resealable for storage. All the kids have to do in the morning is add water and any extra toppings and then microwave.

Original recipe makes 17 packets


4 cups old-fashioned oats
1 cup wheat germ
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup nonfat dry milk powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
resealable sandwich bags
