Instant Oatmeal Mix
A recipe from the Sneaky Kitchen
4 C. rolled oats
1 heaping tsp. cinnamon
2/3 C. sugar or equivalent of other sweetener
2/3 C. dried milk
1/2 tsp salt (optional)
1 cup raisins
3/4 C. ground flaxseed (entirely optional - see Note)

Place oats in a food processor or blender; pulse to process until almost all the oats are at least chopped in half or finer. Add balance of ingredients & pulse until well mixed. It's great if most raisins are chopped at least in half, but not necessary.

You can use another chopped dried fruit instead of raisins, or eliminate them entirely. Part of the sugar can be brown sugar if desired. Cinnamon is very healthy & helps control blood sugar spikes, but you can change that if you wish. Any additions can be used - ground nuts or seeds, another seasoning - as long as it is dry, not liquid.

To use: Keep a 1/3 C. and 3/4 C. measuring cup with the oatmeal mix. Measure a rounded 1/3 C.  oatmeal mix into a microwaveable bowl. Add a scant 3/4 C. water. Microwave about 2 min. Serve with extra milk and/or a bit of brown sugar. 

Note: Flaxseed requires that the mix must be kept refrigerated. You can use a full 3/4 C. water & after it's cooked, stir in 1 or 2 Tbsp. ground flaxseed.
