Homemade Flavored "Instant" Oatmeal Packets - TNT

My boys love oatmeal but ONLY the instant oatmeal in the expensive little packets; so when I came across this recipe, I knew I had to give it a try. I'm sooo glad I did!!! They don't even know I'm making it myself!! LOL

Serving Size : 8

3 C Quick-Cooking Oats
Salt
8 Plastic Sandwich Bags

Put 1/2 C. oats in a blender and whirl at high speed until powdery; reserve in a small bowl and repeat procedure with an additional 1/2 C. oats. If you're using a food processor, powder the 1 C. of oats in one motion. Into each sandwich bag put 1/4 C. unpowdered oats, 2 T. powdered oats, and a scant 1/4 t. salt. Store in a box or airtight container.

To serve: Empty packet into a bowl. Add 3/4 C. boiling water; stir and let stand for 2 minutes. For thicker oatmeal, use less water; for thinner, use more water. (I microwave for 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 minutes or until done on high)

VARIATIONS
Apple-cinnamon: To each packet add 1 T. sugar, 1/4 t. cinnamon, and 2T. chopped dried apples.
Sweetened: To each packet add 1 T. sugar
Cinnamon spice: To each packet add 1 T. sugar, 1/4 t. cinnamon, and a scant 1/8 t. nutmeg.
Raisins and brown sugar: To each packet add 1 T. packed brown sugar and 1 T. raisins.
Wheat germ: To each packet add 2 T. any kind of wheat germ
Fruit and cream: (This is my own to satisfy the kids) To each packet add 1T. dry milk and 2T dried fruit or fresh fruit after cooking or jam.
