I started making these baggies of oatmeal to save time. (Let me start by saying that I know about the baggies and plastic impact. When they make something similar that will work I’ll make the switch.)
Below is the list of ingredients.
- 1/2 c oatmeal (5 min Quaker Oats here)
- 1/4 c muesli
- 1 tbsp ground flax seed
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 3 taps of cinnamon
Place all the ingredients into a baggie, smash out all the air, close. I then stack them in a large air tight container and put it in my freezer until ready to use.
To eat, I dump the baggie into a bowl and cover with boiling water. Add water to the consistency you like-the chia seeds will continue to soak up water if you let it sit.
I top the oatmeal with blueberries, apple, walnuts, honey, whatever you like.
I like this plan because: while it takes awhile to make the bags, it’s less time than if I pull all that stuff out each time; it’s easy to make underway when I don’t want to be below long; I don’t have a cook pot to clean up; I know I have all my ingredients.
