Make Your Own Instant Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

The Texas Pioneer WomanI love the idea of instant oatmeal, especially on a cold winter day when I am trying to get out of the house in the mornings. I usually use two packets of the stuff to fill my mug. At my house we can go through instant oatmeal quite quickly.

My daughter and I recently made some homemade dehydrated apples that we decided to add to our own homemade instant apple and cinnamon oatmeal. The cost of this recipe is 18 cents a packet, but we usually use two packets a piece, so the final cost to fill our mug is 36 cents.

We stored the dry oatmeal mixture in a clean glass canning jar with a tight fitting lid. This recipe would also make a good gift in a jar for a friend or family member. I hope you enjoy this frugal and natural homemade instant apple and cinnamon oatmeal.
