      Great possibilities here for many versions. I made up one batch, put in some add ins and put it in little bags for my husband in the am, just like what he was buying, but much cheaper. Quick, easy and healthy.

      I love this recipe! I only buy quick-cooking accidentally, so for the 2 cups of oats that don't get pulverized into powder, I sometimes grind the remaining oats down to smaller pieces that look like quick-cooking oats. If I eat this as instant oatmeal, it helps to grind the whole oats. However, if I'm making an instant oatmeal cookie [recipe 170423], it doesn't matter if I don't grind the oats. To get the right proportions for optional flavorings, I refer to recipe 186736. What else can I say? It works, I can adjust salt, sugar, and add-ins, I can use less-processed oats (not quick-cooking) but still get instant oatmeal ... what's not to love? (OK, I love oatmeal. If you don't, I'm sure this doesn't improve it much.)
