Raisin Oatmeal Mix Recipe

Get on your
Apron & start mixing!

Enjoy a warm & FAST bowl of oatmeal each morning! Make your own mix & the kids can even microwave it themselves!

"We like the sweet cinnamony flavor of this instant oatmeal at our house," relates Robert Caummisar of Grayson, Kentucky. The mix makes it convenient to zap a bowl in the microwave for a speedy breakfast. If you like milk with your oatmeal, you can pour a little on top before serving.

Servings 14 ... Prep/Total Time: 10 min.

1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped dried apples or dried banana chips
1/4 cup sugar
