Cinnamon and Brown Sugar Instant Oatmeal Mix
It's been freaking cold outside lately and for the most part we've been staying inside where it's warm and cozy, eating warm and cozy foods. Mornings are coldest and nothing beats a hot breakfast when it's -28 with the wind chill. A hot breakfast like...
Cinnamon and Brown Sugar Instant Oatmeal Mix (Single Use)
1/4 cup quick oats
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
If you want to make a big batch it's best to just make a lot of single use packets in ziploc bags or small tupperwear containers. Brown sugar tends to clump in large mixes.
Combine mix in a bowl with 2/3 cup of water and microwave on high for 1 minute (or pour in 2/3 cup boiling water and cover for 3 minutes). For toddlers you can put in just 1/2 cup of water and it makes it much less messy and something they can eat with their fingers in solid form. My daughter eats it this way every morning even now that she's mastered a spoon.
It's a delicious hearty breakfast that will cost you just pennies to make. Those store bought packets are a huge waste of money, and saving money in January is on almost everyone's mind...
