By using dehydrated fruit ( you can dehydrate your own fruit ), nuts, and instant oatmeal you can make your own instant oatmeal packets that are an excellent option for busy mornings when you are short on time. Running late…. make the oatmeal, place in a mug with a spoon and have the kids eat it in the car on the way to school.
The pre-mixed packets of instant oatmeal that you buy from the supermarket seem to use low-quality ingredients….quality matters to the taste buds.
I get excited just thinking about the endless different combinations that you could create with dried fruit, nuts, flavors of baking candy morsels (chocolate chips, butterscotch, mint, toffee), spices (nutmeg, cinnamon).
I love to add mini chocolate chips and a tiny pinch of cinnamon to my hot morning oatmeal on occasion.
The Yummy Life website shares how to buy ingredients in bulk and make your own different flavored oatmeal packets.
