I have tried a lot of things to make GF oats taste good and have failed miserably! I came across this recipe per pinterest and was surprised at how much my whole family loved it! I only made a small amount the first time around to make sure it was a keeper, and it definitely is! This is what we have had for breakfast everyday for a week now, which says a lot! I love that is doesn't have all the added 'stuff' they put in our food these days....
Instant Homemade Oatmeal
6 cups GF quick rolled oats (Bob’s Red Mill)
1 cup dry milk powder
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon allspice (I did not have / use this)
1 teaspoon salt
1) Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.
2) Mix well.
3) Store in a large container. Label and date. Keep in a cool, dry place for up to 6 months (it never lasts that long at our house, but good to know anyways).
Directions for use: Shake the container to mix ingredients. In a small pot, heat 2/3 cup water to boiling. Add 1/3 cup oatmeal mix. Note: There is approx. 1/3 cup of oatmeal in a packet of instant oatmeal. You may prefer to increase this amount based on the size of servings needed. Reduce heat and cook for 4-5 minutes, or until desired consistency is reached, stir frequently. Can also heat in microwave for one minute.
This is just a base (which tastes amazing by itself!), but you could easily add in any additional dried fruit, fresh fruit or maple syrup.
