Homemade Oatmeal Packets

We have been doing these for while now. They are so good and taste a lot better than the store bought. They are even better for you. For the fruit and cream I purchase the fruit bits from honeyville farms website.

for each baggie add:

1/2 cup quick oats
2TBS powdered milk or powdered creamer

VARIATIONS - (Adjust to your own taste... Or your kids own taste!)

Don't forget to double or triple the flavor ingredients, depending on how many packets you put in each bag!

Apple-Cinnamon - To each packet, add 1 Tbsp. sugar, 1/4 tsp. cinnamon, and 2 Tbsp. chopped dried apples.

Apple Pie - To each packet, add ¼ tsp. apple pie spice and dried chopped apples

Brown Sugar/Cinnamon - To each packet, add 1 Tbsp. brown sugar & 1/4 tsp. cinnamon

Raisins & Brown Sugar - To each packet, add 1 Tbsp. packed brown sugar and 1 Tbsp. raisins.

Health Nut - To each packet, add 1/2 Tbsp. each wheat germ, ground flax seed, chopped almonds

Honey Nut - To each packet, add 1 Tbsp. honey & 1 T. chopped pecans/almonds

Fruit & Cream - To each packet, add 1 Tbsp. non-dairy coffee creamer and 2 Tbsp. dried fruit & / or powdered fruit flavor

Candy Bar - To each packet add 2 Tbsp. Crushed Butterfinger (or other candy bar) to each packet.

Maple & Brown Sugar - To each packet add maple syrup & extra brown sugar

Maple Pecan - To each packet add maple syrup & chopped pecans

I love homemade oatmeal packets. When my son was young I used to do these all the time! Been awhile - but it is so much better for you.

You can delete this comment if you like - I just wanted to respond to you about the chicken pot pie & didn't see a way to email you.

Thanks so much for asking. Since that is one of my original recipes, I would certainly be honored to have you link to my recipe from your site with your pictures, but I prefer that the recipe not be reposted elsewhere in order to protect my copyright on it. That's is one recipe that will be in my future cookbook!
