  • 10 cups quick oats divided
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1-2 cups brown sugar depending on how sweet you like your oatmeal
  • 1 cup non-dairy creamer
  • Snack-sized ziplock bags


  • Measure out 7 cups of quick outs and place them in a large bowl. Then add the remaining 3 cups of quick oats to your blender and blend until powdery. Pour the powdered oats into the bowl with the other oats.
  • Add the salt, brown sugar, and creamer to the bowl of oats, and stir until well mixed.
  • Next, you’ll divide up the mixture into your “packets.” Scoop 1/2 cup of the oatmeal mixture into each snack-sized ziplock bag, then seal each bag tightly. The recipe makes approximately 24 single-serving bags.
  • Empty one “packet” of oatmeal into a bowl or mug, then add 3/4 cup of water. Microwave on High for 1-2 minutes until hot. Let cool for a minute or so, add your favorite toppings, and enjoy!
