    This is so easy to do. I stop buying instant packets of oatmeal because of the price. I tried with brown sugar and raisin. It was so yummy. For my son 1/2 cup of oats is too much. So I'll do packets with 1/4 cup of oats. I can't wait to try with dried apple. Thanks Charlotte :) Made for Healthy Tag

    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.

    I am trying to eat better for breakfast but I don't like eating breakfast before I go to work. I made a bunch of these packets to keep at my desk. They were easy to make and you can use whatever ingredients you like. They are really a money saver. I made sweetened and cinnamon spice but want to try the apple and cinnamon too. What a great way to eat good and save money!
