I just want to put this out there that I made this recipe PRE-South Beach Diet. It is so good and easy!
DIY Instant Oatmeal was my first find to my now favorite blogger Ms Jillee. I ADORE her style and love the ideas she posts. My posts are related to the experience and experimentation of other’s peoples ideas.
Without further adieu, I now introduce my first food entry into my blog!
Jillee’s Instant Oatmeal (Tweaked on accident)
- 10 cups of quick oats (3/4 of a large tub) – One whole large container of quick oats.
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1-2 cups brown sugar (depending on how sweet you like your oatmeal)
- 1 cup non-dairy creamer
- one air tight container
What to do: Put 3 cups of oats into a blender and blend until it is powdery. In a bowel add powdered oats and all other ingredients together and mix well. 1/2 cup of oat meal mixture to 3/4 cup of milk, water, or half and half as desired and heat to desired temperature in the microwave.
Q: Why did you tweak the recipe? A: it was an accident but using the whole container of oats turned out be just fine. If it’s not broke don’t fix it!
Q: How much brown sugar did you use? A: I used two cups. The husband likes it sweeter. I found it to be just fine.
Q: How many servings does this make? About 24, so that makes 2.5 – 3 boxes of Quaker Oats for about $3.48. I had all other ingredients but the oats.
Q: The recipe lists non-dairy creamer but in the picture on Jillee’s site it shows Vanilla Non-Dairy creamer. What did you use? A: I used the vanilla, but next time I will use plain
Q: What do you like in your oatmeal? A: My favorite additions to oatmeal is sliced almonds and dried cranberries.
Q: Will do be doing more alterations to this recipe? A: Yes; I am going to try using a variation with whole cooking oats or steel cut oats due to my new dieting food habits.
This is a GREAT way to save some money on a very common breakfast item. I LOVE IT!
