Organic Instant Oats PacksPosted: April 6, 2015
Not too long ago, Justin asked that I pick him up some instant Quaker oat packages from the store for breakfast on one of my weekly grocery trips. I have to say that, after having worked for an amazing organic grains farmer on and off for the past two years, I was a little horrified. I figured, why buy instant oat packs when I can just as easily put together my own little packages, with tasty organic oats and and controlled amounts of sugar and spices?
Of course, I used Gold Forest Grain‘s organic quick oats as the base. (Would I have used anything else?)
Then I threw in some dried fruit from Steve and Dan‘s, along with some sunflower seeds for texture, and some sugar and cinnamon for flavour. That’s it!
Organic Instant Oats
You will need:
2 cups organic instant oats
1 cup dried fruit
1 cup sunflower seeds
4 tsp cinnamon
4 tsp sugar
For preparing and serving:
1 cup milk
An extra splash of milk to serve
Divide the oats, dried fruit, sunflower seeds, cinnamon, and sugar between 4 plastic baggies. (This recipe makes 4 oat packs). When ready to cook, add 1 cup milk and microwave on high for 1.5 – 2 mins, depending on your machine. When ready to serve, add an extra splash of milk and serve hot for breakfast. Enjoy!
