Homemade Instant Oatmeal Mix

For mornings when you're in a rush, this homemade instant oatmeal mix is a great addition to your pantry.


  • 5 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (500 grams)
  • ⅓ - ½ cup packed light or dark brown sugar , depending on desired sweetness (66-105 grams)
  • ½ cup powdered milk (42 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Optional additions:

  • cup chopped dried fruit (approximately 75 grams)
  • cup chopped nuts (approximately 75 grams)
  • ½ - 1 teaspoon cinnamon or nutmeg


  • In a food processor pulse the rolled oats 4-5 times, just until they start to break up. Remove about two-thirds of the oats (3 ⅓ cups, but no need to be exact) and pulse the remaining oats to a fine powder.
  • Combine the oats, sugar, powdered milk, salt and any optional additions. Store in a large airtight container or portion out into individual servings and store in zipped bags. Mix should keep for 1-2 months.

To serve:

  • Combine ½ cup instant oatmeal mix with ½ - ¾ cup boiling water and stir.
