Updated: My husband reported positive results without the powdered milk. I haven't tried it yet, but trust his judgment and for next week will make another batch again without the powdered milk.
Homemade Instant Oatmeal
1/3 c quick oats
Pinch of salt (~1/8 ts)
2 tsp brown sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1-2 tbs dried fruit such as raisins (optional)
(If mixing with water, instead of milk, add 1 tsp powdered nonfat milk)
In a microwave safe dish, mix with 2/3 c milk. Cook the normal amount of time to make instant oatmeal in your microwave. (~ 1 min in an 1100 watt and 2-3 min in a 900 watt or less).
