Instant Oatmeal Mix

Rated as 4.54 out of 5 Stars

"This tastes remarkably similar to the maple and brown sugar instant oatmeal varieties you buy in little packets. Save money by making your own! For each batch of oatmeal, combine 2/3 cup quick-cooking oats with 1 to 2 tablespoons of mix; add boiling water until desired consistency is reached."

DISAPPOINTING. My kids refused to eat it, and they love oatmeal. If I could rate it less than 1 star, I would. Maybe it would be better if the dry milk was omitted. I think that changed the c...
