    TeresaD's Note:

    After making instant oatmeal from packs and trying to adapt the quick oats for years, I finally created this basic high octane (fiber & protein) recipe to fuel our mornings. To accommodate changing tastes and my desire to experiment I mix and store the basic recipe. The desired add-ins are mixed when I serve the cereal. The recipe can also be increased to accommodate OAMC.

    Units: US | Metric

    Optional add-ins


    1. 1
      Pour all ingredients into an air tight container and mix well to distribute them evenly.
    2. 2
      Store in your freezer or pantry.
    3. 3
      To Make Single Servings: Pour ½ cup of mixture and 1 cup of water, milk, or soy milk into a bowl. Microwave on high 1-2 minutes. Stir and let stand (mix continues to cook) for one minute before serving. Stir in add-ins, serve.
    4. 4
      Note 1-Thickness: Use less liquid to thicken or more to thin your cereal. I make the recipe according to directions, it thickens as it cooks. After it has cooked I add additional milk (actually Silk light vanilla soy) to thin it.
    5. 5
      Note 2-Cooking time: Your cooking time may vary, be sure to watch carefully the first time you make it to avoid boiling over.

      I love this oatmeal! It is better than what you buy in the store and very easy to mix together. I used pumpkin pie spice instead of allspice and it is very good.
