DIY Frozen Oatmeal * .12 cents a serving!
Our mornings have been pretty rushed lately....so in an effort to make our mornings go a little smoother and our bellies happy with good food - I decided to make our own version of frozen oatmeal.
We have tried various brands of frozen oatmeal and they are pretty good, quick to make and pretty pricy. I figured I would give a DIY version a whack and see how it tasted.....WOW - it is good and so inexpensive to make. I figure 12 quick breakfasts cost us $1.50. That is about .12 cents a serving. Eddie loves them and it is just enough food to get him going. We have been considering 1 frozen disk a serving - of course you could use two disks for a bigger bowl.
Fresh and Easy. Next time I am going to make steel cut oatmeal. We cooked as per the package instructions.
To make 12 small servings:
3 cups dried Rolled Oats
5.5 Cups of Water
1 Teaspoon of Salt
Cook via Package Instructions for the brand you choose.
Place silicone muffin cups on a cookie sheet or cutting board. Fill the cups 1/2 way full with cooked oatmeal.
You can add some mix-in prior to freezing.
Mix-ins For Freezing:
Mini Chocolate Chips
We added a spoonful of brown sugar.
Place a frozen oatmeal disk in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 2 minutes. Remove and stir. Microwave for an additional 30 seconds. Top with milk, fruit, etc. and ENJOY!
