DIY Instant Oatmeal

Oatmeal, a classic breakfast staple.  One that I used to detest as a child, but quite enjoy now!

Inspired by Sally’s oatmeal that I’ve found at Walmart and Real Canadian Superstore, I’ve recreated my own version of the Maple and Brown Sugar flavour!

Homemade Instant Oatmeal
  • 4 cups oats old fashioned
  • 1/2 cup dried fruit I like cranberries
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts almonds are my fav
  • 2 Tbsp ground flax
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Roast nuts for 5 minutes or until lightly toasted; set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients including the toasted nuts.
  4. Store in an air tight container for up to 1 month.
To Make Oatmeal:
  1. Scoop out 1/3 cup of the oatmeal mixture and place in a bowl with ½ cup water. Microwave for 90 seconds - 2 minutes, or until liquid is absorbed.
