Maple Brown Sugar Oatmeal Mix
Found this on Pinterest. Got to love that place? The things we find there are amazing. My husband enjoys this kind of oatmeal before work, so I thought it might be nice to make up some of our own! When I saw this I as thrilled!
When I made this, I learned it will make about 5 servings. I put them in individual bags, so my husband doesn’t have to hassle with measuring out how much he needs.
It was SO easy to make. I mean EASY EASY. I will be making my own from now on! It’s cheaper too.
- 1 C. quick oats (grind in blender or food processor till finely ground)
- 1 C. quick oats (leave whole)
- 3/4-1C. brown sugar
- 1 Tbsp. maple flavoring
- 2 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
Combine brown sugar, maple flavoring, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg in a medium bowl. Stir to thoroughly combine the sugar and extract (a mixer is really helpful for this). Add in oats and ground oats. Stir to combine. Store in airtight container.
Place 2/3 C. oatmeal mix in a bowl and add hot water to desired consistency.
For Apple-cinnamon oatmeal-substitute vanilla extract for the maple and add 1/2 C. dried apple pieces.
*Just like the packets you buy in the store, only you can control the ingredients.
*Package in individual baggies for quick, single serving sizes.
*Add more oats and ground oats to make a less sweet mix.
*Double, triple or quadruple the recipe and store in a large jar, scoop out how much you need.
