Update: Yes, you can buy prepackaged flavored oats but why not try this homemade version. I am not even sure if you can buy instant gluten free oatmeal. I know I just paid over $7 for my package of GF oats so I can’t even imagine how much it would cost to purchase flavored packets for breakfast. I have had this recipe for many years but it was not until I went gluten free that I actually started to use it. It also makes a great Christmas gift for those who want to do a homemade Christmas. This recipe is so simple!
Gluten Free Spiced Instant Oatmeal
8 cups GF rolled oats
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 tsp salt
2 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 1/2 cups dried apple or raisins
Combine all in a large bowl. Mix with a wire whisk until evenly distributed. Pour into a sealed glass container.
To make: pour 1/2 cup boiling water into a bowl and add 1/2 cup of mix.
Note: I have used this mix for my apple crisp recipe and even no-bake cookies. If you follow a low salt diet feel free to eliminate.
My daughters always remind me when the container is getting low and it only takes minutes to make weeks worth of breakfasts.
