Homemade Oatmeal Packets

If you don't have time in the morning to make a pot of oatmeal, no problem. You can just take some time on Saturday or Sunday and create your own instant oatmeal packets. Then when you are on the go in the morning all you have to do is add hot water or milk.

Begin by placing one cup of oats in a food processor. Process the oats until they become a powder. Set them in a bowl. Now add one cup of oats that have not been processed. Sprinkle in one tablespoon of brown sugar, one tablespoon of cinnamon, and one tablespoon of raisins. Mix together and then separate in to plastic zipper bags.

When you wake up you can heat up some water or milk and then stir it in a small bowl with the oatmeal packet until the oatmeal is the consistency that you like it. Some like it thicker than others so just add it a little at a time until you get it just right.
