Homemade Instant Oatmeal

Heather Thomas, sloCooking


  • ¼ cup quick cook oats
  • 2 tbsp ground up quick cook oats**
  • 1 tbsp sugar any kind – I used white
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon or your spice of choice
  • ¼ cup dried fruit I used dried apple, it was what I had on hand – the brand, Sensible Foods – the one in the photo – is my FAVORITE
  • salt to taste I left it out and thought it tasted fine
  • hot water/milk/soy milk enough to get it to the consistency you like


  • Mix everything up (except liquid) and store in baggies in the pantry until you’re in need. I used a food processor, though a blender with a really sharp blade would also work.
  • I ground up about 1 cup oatmeal (pre-grind) which gave me enough ground up oats to make 9 bags of instant oatmeal. This is the way to go, full on assembly line style. Don’t bother trying to make one bag at a time, you’ll waste so much time that way.
