DIY Instant Oatmeal

DIY Instant Oatmeal
makes about 12 servings

5 Cups Quick Oats (A Little More than a Small Canister)
1 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Cup - 1 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Non-Dairy Coffee Creamer

Add 3 1/2 Cups oatmeal to a large bowl.  Blend the remaining 1 1/2 cups in a blender or food processor until "dusty".  Add the blended oatmeal and the remaining ingredients to the large bowl.  Mix well.  Store in 1/2 cup portions in snack size zip lock bags.

I am a huge oatmeal fan and my husband is too.  He usually grabs a bag of instant for his breakfast at work.  So when I found this recipe for DIY oatmeal, I knew I had to give it a try!  The oatmeal is blended for a thinker end product, but if you like your oatmeal on the runny side or don't want to dirty a blender, you could easily skip that step.
