Old Fashioned Oats in an Instant

Submitted by: MACS706

Introduction

I prefer to make my own instant oatmeal by taking my old fashioned oats and mixing them ahead of time. This is for a single serving but I often do larger batches. I put them in a ziplock bag or if I am going to eat away from home a small microwave container. Then all I need to do is add the water or milk (add the extra calories if using milk) to the bowl and microwave.
You can also grind the oats in a blender or food processor before adding the spices. (grinding the oats will help speed the cooking time)
I sometimes add a 1/2 tsp of vanilla as well.
Top with your favorite fruit and enjoy!
