Never Buy Instant Oatmeal Again

…I mean it. I love to save money, who doesn’t? Instant oatmeal can be pricey and it’s unbelievably easy to make at home. Here’s how.

The supplies you will need:

  • Plastic bowl containers
  • Large package of quick cook oats – I prefer quick cook vs. instant.
  • Craisins, raisins, dates
  • Cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • Brown sugar or favorite sweetener


  1. Line up bowls and fill each with 1/2 cup of oatmeal. If you like a lot of oatmeal, add 1 cup of oatmeal.
  2. Add favorite dried fruit to each bowl. If you’re filling 5 bowls and want a variation of flavor mix it up.
  3. Add 2 shakes of cinnamon to each bowl and a pinch of salt.
  4. Top with your favorite sweetener. If you choose to add liquid version, I would recommend doing it when you’re ready to eat it.
  5. Attach top and take to work or set out for the morning.
  6. When ready to eat, add 1-2 cups of hot/boiling water, depending on your preference.
  7. Cover bowl, allow oatmeal to absorb the water, stir and enjoy.
