Frugal Fridays: Instant Oatmeal

Instant Oatmeal Packets


Prep Day: For each snack bag, I ended up combining –

1/2 cup organic quick oats – $.07
2 teaspoon powder whey or milk – $.04
1 T. brown sugar – $.04
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon – $.05
Dried fruit – optional

Per Serving: $.20
Total for $2.40 for a 12 count

It takes about a whole 5 minutes to make a whole bunch of these. So fast but will save lots of breakfast prep-time in the future!

Serve Day: When you want to make a packet, dump into bowl just add 3/4 c. of hot water or milk and stir. You could also add dried fruit to make different flavors.

So simple!



I’m a married mother of 3. Who loves living in Minnesota, prep ahead cooking, and couldn’t live without them now. No more worries about the age old question “What’s for Dinner?”. I am also transitioning my family into the slow food and clean eating movement. I believe it’s best if we can eat food in it’s most natural state. I love to share the information I have been gaining through this whole experience. I’m also a trained personal chef. Cooking is a passion and hobby of mine. Hope your are enjoying the content of my blog.
