Make Your Own DELICIOUS Sneaky Oatmeal Mix
Is your family tired of plain old oatmeal? Do they not like oatmeal to begin with? Do want another way to hide powdered milk into food your family will eat? Well this is the oatmeal recipe for you! I discovered it on the new cans for oats at the cannery and decided to try it. It is the BEST oatmeal I’ve ever tasted!!! It takes more ingredients than just oatmeal, salt, and water so watch this video on how to minimize the mess and time it takes to make this for your family each morning. Your kids can make single servings or you can double (triple or quadruple) the the measurements and make it on your stove for your entire family. If you’ve sworn off oatmeal or love it just as much as I do…this recipe is for YOU!!
Sneaky Creamy Oatmeal Mix (Makes 8 servings)
4 C. Oatmeal
2 T. Powdered Milk
2 T. Sugar (You can decrease this according to your family’s tastes)
Mix dry ingredients together in empter #10 can and store covered in a cool, dry place.
Making Creamy Oatmeal from the Sneaky Oatmeal Mix (Makes 1 serving)
1/2 C. Oatmeal Mix (I know I said 1/4 C. on the video, I meant 1/2 C.)
1 C. Water
Small handful of Raisins (Optional) You could also use dehydrated apples from the cannery just break them into smaller pieces
Mix Oatmeal mix and raisins (or other dehydrated fruit) with water and microwave for 2 minutes. If you need to make more of this for a larger family, simply boil the water first in a pot on the stove and then stir in the oats and let sit for 1 minute.
