I’m a big fan of oatmeal and since it’s generally healthy and good for breast feeding I’m trying to eat more of it… but this recipe is not really “healthy” due to all the sugar…but it does taste good! I’ll try to update it to be more healthy next time I make it (note I did add milled flaxseed to the recipe so that helps right?)

This is really tasty and easy – I like that the powdered mix can be stored and used when wanted in however much oatmeal you decide you want to eat. I will definitely make this recipe again though hopefully a bit healthier.

Here’s the recipe (serves 9):

Ingredients (9 servings)

For each batch of oatmeal (single serving)


  1. Combine the first seven ingredients and mix well; store in an airtight container in a cool dry place for up to 6 months; this will make about 9 servings of oatmeal.
  2. To prepare: Combine oats and 2 tablespoons of oatmeal mix; add enough boiling water until oatmeal is desired consistency.
  3. sprinkle with additional brown sugar if desired.
