How to Make Your Own Instant Oatmeal Packets

It’s National Breakfast Week. Why not celebrate by saving BIG on breakfast! 

If you love to save time and money, this one is for you! I bought a large 42 oz canister of instant oats on sale for $2 and a bag of C&H brown sugar on sale for $1. From this I made 30 (THIRTY!) quick oats packets, just like the ones they sell in boxes of 6 packets for $3-$5. My version cost $0.10 per “packet” and the prepackaged ones can cost up to $0.85 per packet. That’s a pretty big savings! 

DIY Instant Oatmeal Packets

These are so simple to make. 

Take 1/2 cup Oats, 1-2 tablespoons of brown sugar, put them in a snack sized bag and zip it up. Really. It’s that easy! 

You can add dried fruit, cinnamon, chocolate chips, whatever you love in your oatmeal.

When you are ready to cook them, empty the packet into a bowl, add 3/4 cup of water or milk and microwave on high for 1 minute. Simple as that!

Think of all the wine you could buy with the savings! ;)
