> INSTANT OATMEAL MIXES
> This compilation of "Instant Oatmeal Mixes: Oatmeal, again?" arose from purely
> selfish reasons. Being an avid backpacker/camper & the mother of 2 young
> girls, working 2 jobs, & going full-time to nursing school (how did I do it
> ?!!), I needed something low cost, quick, easy, traveled well, & lightweight;
> yet, was tasty, nutritious, interesting, & adaptable. Viola! It was no longer,
> "Oatmeal, again?"
> So make your own homemade flavored instant oatmeal mixes for low cost,
> additive-free alternatives to the pricey, chemical-laden prepared mixes in the
> grocery store. Also, it allows you to create, individualize, & vary the
> packets according to your likes. Try the flavor variations offered here or
> make up your own favorites, & share your ideas &/or recipe(s) with me.
> Plain Instant Oatmeal
> Yields: 8 servings
> @ Home:
> 3 cups quick-cooking oats: Blend 1 c of the oats in a food processor until
> powdery (if using a blender, blend 1/2 c @ a time). Leave the other 2 c as is.
> You will need 8 plastic sandwich bags.
> Optional flavor ingredients (below)
> Into each sandwich bag: 1/4 c unpowdered oats, 2 TBSP powdered oats, and a
> scant 1/4 tsp salt. Store in a box or airtight container.
> @ Camp: Empty packet into a bowl/cup. Add 3/4 c boiling water; stir and let
> stand for 2 minutes. For thicker oatmeal, use less water; for thinner, use
> more water.
> Note: For a creamier oatmeal: Mix the bag with 3/4 c cold water; let stand 1 -
> 2 min; then cook to heat thru (or eat as is).
> Sweetened Oatmeal
> To each packet, add 1-2 tsp sugar.
> Creamy Oatmeal
> To each packet, add 1 TBSP powdered dry milk.
> Creamy & Sweetened Oatmeal
> To each packet, add 1-2 tsp sugar & 1 TBSP powdered dry milk.
> Apple-Cinnamon Oatmeal
> To each packet, add 1-2 tsp sugar, dash or 2 of cinnamon, and 2 TBSP chopped
> dried apples.
> Cinnamon-Spice Oatmeal
> To each packet, add 1-2 tsp sugar, 2 dashes of cinnamon, and a dash of nutmeg.
> Oatmeal with Raisins & Brown Sugar
> To each packet, add 1 tsp packed brown sugar and 1 TBSP raisins.
> Wheat Germ Oatmeal
> To each packet, add 2 tsp wheat germ.
> Fruit & Cream
> To each packet, add 1 TBSP powdered dry milk and 2 TBSP chopped dried fruit.
> (In addition to the above) To flavor, sweeten, & fortify bland oatmeal, try:
> Extracts: (1/8-1/4 tsp of 1 ext.) vanilla, almond, rum, etc; cloves, allspice,
> mace (very strong spices; use as a 'dash of'); instant coffee, brown sugar,
> date sugar or dates, molasses, honey, syrups, dehydrated fruit compote or
> fruit medley, rehydrated; crushed candies, Red Hot candies (cinnamony);
> chocolate, butterscotch, or peanut butter chips; mini marshmallows, any dried
> fruits (or a combo of any), instant drink mixes/crystals/powders, instant
> cocoa (mixes), malted milk powder, jams/jellies, yogurt (plain/flavored),
> flavored gelatins, pudding mixes, seeds &/or nuts, fruit leathers, peanut
> butter (or other nut butter), margarine (or Butter Buds), BacoBits, (meat)
> jerky bits, tofu "bacon", tofu jerky, bits of mincemeat or pemmican, dried
> &/or candied orange/lemon peel, Nutella, or anything from your gorp bag, etc,
> Try combining other quick-cooking cereals (cream of wheat/rice/barley,
> Malt-O-Meal, etc) or dry cereals (granolas, muesli, Bran Buds, All-Bran, etc)
> to the oatmeal packets.
> *For an even creamier oatmeal, add 1-2 generous heaping tsp powdered creamer
> (& it improves the taste of the dry milk, when used).
