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!
