Homemade Instant Organic Oatmeal Recipe

I'm always on the hunt for new recipes, especially for breakfast! We've been eating a LOT of breakfast cookies, which we all love to eat for breakfast, but sometimes I would like to save those for a snack. That leaves me wondering what quick thing I can serve for breakfast....

I had the notion that I could find a quick, yummy way to have fresh oatmeal in the mornings for breakfast, but in the past, I've only cooked it stove-top each morning. I started looking around the web and didn't find an exact recipe I loved so I made one myself!

(dry mix in the storage bowl)

This is a very forgiving recipe....basically, you can make it however you like it!

Renee's Instant Organic Oatmeal Recipe:
- 3 cups organic rolled oats
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 cup organic dark brown sugar
- 4 ounces (about 1/2 cup) of chopped dried organic apples (*NOTE: make sure they are just apples and not apples cooked in oils)
- 2 ounces (about 1/4 cup) of chopped dried organic cherries (*NOTE: make sure they are just dried cherries and not cherries cooked in oils)

1. In a food processor or blender, process 3 cups of organic oats until they are pretty fine.
2. In a medium to large sized storage container with a lid, mix together all ingredients. Store air-tight in the container.

 (after it has soaked in boiling water; you could add milk if you like a moister oatmeal)

To Eat:
1. Scoop 1/3 cup of oat mixture into a cereal bowl.
2. Pour into the bowl 1/3 to 1/2 cup of boiling water.
3. Place a plate over the top as a lid and let sit for about five minutes.
4. Eat and enjoy!
*Alternately, you could make this in the microwave. I don't have a suggestion for timing because I don't have a microwave to test it out!

Other ideas for mix-ins:
- dry milk
- raisins
- cranberries
