Layer ½ cup of oats, 2 tsp brown sugar and sprinkle of salt (optional) into a snack size zip baggie. Alternatively, you can put all of the oats in a glass container and scoop out 1/2 cup a day.
Add in any additional mix-ins to create the flavor of your choice. This will increase your price per bag but gives you more options for variety so you won't get bored and eat out.
Heating Instructions Microwave
When heating up, prepare according to the directions of the oats you've purchased usually ¾ cup of water and stir. Microwave for 1 minute. Stir and depending on your microwave, you may need an additional 30 seconds.
Heating Instructions Stove Top/Hot Water Method
Pour one bag of oats into a bowl or mug.
Heat up boiling water on the stove top, in a kettle or by using the hot water from a coffee pot. Pour ¾ of a cup of water over one packet of oats and stir to combine. Allow to sit for about 2 minutes to get soft and creamy. Depending on how thick or thin you like it, add a little bit more water as it starts to settle.
Cinnamon and raisins (my favorite)
Chocolate chip and coconut flakes (strange combo, but good!)
Chopped walnuts, cinnamon and maple syrup* (my husband's favorite)
Any leftover dried fruit, nuts, flaxseed or chia seeds from your pantry.
Storage: If they are sealed well, they should last about 3 months or so. Store in the Ziploc bags or a large glass container. Salt: If you don't want to add the sprinkle of salt, please leave it out.
