I came upon the idea online somewhere about putting together these pre-maid homemade oatmeal packets. Yummy, inexpensive & healthy. Feel free to add more or less sugar, creamer or fruit to suit your taste. These will make a nice sized bowl of oatmeal. (I got the idea from tammy's recipes online)

How To Make homemade oatmeal packets

  • 1
    You basically add the listed ingredients into a ziplock sandwich bag or folding sandwich bags & tie with twist tie. Label bag with permanent marker so you know what flavor it is. I make lots of these at a time so I make an assembly line with my ingredients & several bowls. I measure my ingredients (assembly line style) into bowls then dump them into baggies & label.
