This month for Secret Recipe Club I was assigned Aimee’s blog From Chapel Hill to Chickenville. Aimee is one busy and amazing lady! With so many recipes to choose from, I finally chose to reproduce her recipe for Homemade Instant Oatmeal.
Cinnamon Brown Sugar Instant Oatmeal
Yields about 1 1/2 cups instant oatmeal
1 cup + 1/4 cup old fashioned oats, divided
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 Tbsp. packed dark brown sugar
1/4 cup walnuts
1/8 tsp. sea salt
1 Tbsp. chia seeds, ground in a coffee grinder
In a food processor, combine all the ingredients except for the 1/4 cup oats. Pulse 4 to 6 times until the oats are small and all the ingredients are combined. Transfer to a small mixing bowl and stir in the 1/4 cup whole oats.
Divide the oats into 3 snack size bags (about 1/2 cup in each bag).
To make the instant oatmeal: add hot water, stir well, and enjoy a great bowl of oatmeal anywhere you are! And use your imagination here: add some dried fruit like raisins, dried apple or cranberries, different spices, coconut flakes, and/or more whole nuts.
