DY instant oatmeal


Make oatmeal cookies and just substitute the oatmeal and raisins for this stuff. They turn out awesome.
These can also be made and stored with mylar and oxygen absorbers for long term ready to eat instant breakfasts. 
Do one with trail mix from the store, just add the oatmeal to it and the dry milk. Same recipe. Get creative and make your own, your taste buds will love it. Use these as a guideline and adapt for your own taste buds. 
For single serve after you have made the mix up, measure the amount you want, put it in containers you can microwave then all you have to open the container and add water to microwave. This is a great alternative to prepackaged oatmeal's.

Put one cup oats in a blender or food processor and whirl it at high speed until it is powdery. Combine powdered oats with all the other ingredients, mix well, label correctly, and store in air tight container.
The point is to show you how you can make your own. It is simple and easy to do and you control the ingredients. Make your own organic blends. Adjust the fruits, add nuts, change the grains, create your own that you and your family love. 
To serve mix ½ cup oats with ½ cup water. Microwave 1 minute or pour boiling hot water on it and cover to let stand 5 minutes. Serve with milk or other beverage.
