    Charlotte J's Note:

    Oatmeal is a great snack and breakfast food. Cut back on your grocery bill by making your own instant packets. For each packet you will need: A plastic sandwich bag and 1/2 cup quick oats (or more)

      Use your food chopper and powder HALF of the oatmeal before putting in the baggie. Also ADD 1-2 tablespoons DRY powdered milk. These two changes will give you a much creamier oatmeal. ADD-ins we like: snipped, dried apricots or prunes/plums; dried blueberries or cherries; candied, diced pineapple. Fresh fruit (raspberries, cherries) or applesauce. Yum!

      This is a great money saver, I have made this recipe several times and can make several varieties quickly. The kids really like the brown sugar and raisin, (I add some cinnamon in it as well) so we made up an entire container of the mix and added a cheap 1/2 cup measuring cup in the container. All we do in the morning is shake the container to conteract settling, scoop out the amount in our bowl. Even cheaper since we do not have to buy the baggies. thanks for the recipe.
