Making them ourselves was the answer.
1/4 cup quick oats
1 teaspoon powdered milk
a pinch of salt
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
Measure out each of these ingredients in the baggie and you are good to go.
When I made up my packets, I used the assembly line method and was able to make up twenty packets very quickly.
Another option is to make up a big batch of the mix. I did this also.
5 cups quick oats
1/3 cup powdered milk
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cup brown sugar
When you are ready to use this, just measure out how much instant oatmeal mix you would like and add twice as much water as oatmeal mix.
I'm really enjoying these packets at home and my better half is taking them to work as well. It's a fast, yummy, healthier, cost-friendly way to go.
