Serving Size: 8
3 C Quick-Cooking Oats
8 Plastic Sandwich Bags
Put 1/2 C. oats in a blender and whirl at high speed until powdery; reserve in a small bowl. Repeat procedure with an additional 1/2-C. oats. If you're using a food processor, powder the 1-C. of oats in one motion.
Into each sandwich bag put 1/4-C. un-powdered oats, 2 T. powdered oats, and a scant 1/4-tsp. salt. Store in a box or airtight container.
To serve:
Empty packet into a bowl. Add 3/4 C. boiling water; stir and let stand for 2 minutes.
For thicker oatmeal, use less water; for thinner, use more water. (I microwave for 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 minutes or until done on high)

Apple-cinnamon: To each packet add 1 T. sugar, 1/4 t. cinnamon, and 2T. chopped dried apples.
Cinnamon spice: To each packet add 1 T. sugar, 1/4 t. cinnamon, and a scant 1/8 t. nutmeg.
Raisins and brown sugar: To each packet add 1 Tbs. packed brown sugar and 1-Tbs. raisins.
Wheat germ: To each packet add 2 Tbs. any kind of wheat germ
Fruit and cream: (This is my own to satisfy the kids) To each packet add 1Tbs. Dry milk and 2Tbs. Dried fruit or fresh fruit after cooking or jam.
