Make Your Own DELICIOUS Sneaky Oatmeal Mix: Oatmeal Food Storage Recipes

Is your family tired of plain old oatmeal? Do they not like oatmeal to begin with? Do want another way to hide powdered milk into food your family will eat? Well this is the oatmeal recipe for you! I discovered it on the new cans for oats at the cannery and decided to try it. It is the BEST oatmeal I’ve ever tasted!!! It takes more ingredients than just oatmeal, salt, and water so watch this video on how to minimize the mess and time it takes to make this for your family each morning. Your kids can make single servings or you can double (triple or quadruple) the the measurements and make it on your stove for your entire family. If you’ve sworn off oatmeal or love it just as much as I do…this recipe is for YOU!!

Sneaky Creamy Oatmeal Mix (Makes 8 servings)
4 C. Oatmeal
2 T. Powdered Milk
2 T. Sugar (You can decrease this according to your family’s tastes)
Mix dry ingredients together in empter #10 can and store covered in a cool, dry place.
Making Creamy Oatmeal from the Sneaky Oatmeal Mix (Makes 1 serving)
1/2 C. Oatmeal Mix (I know I said 1/4 C. on the video, I meant 1/2 C.)
1 C. Water
Small handful of Raisins (Optional) You could also use dehydrated apples from the cannery just break them into smaller pieces
Mix Oatmeal mix and raisins (or other dehydrated fruit) with water and microwave for 2 minutes. If you need to make more of this for a larger family, simply boil the water first in a pot on the stove and then stir in the oats and let sit for 1 minute.

    My kids love this! However, do you have problems with it boiling over the sides of the bowl in the microwave?

    This looks like a great recipe… I will definitely try this! One other thing I love to sneak into to my kids oatmeal is either powdered egg whites or 100 percent liquid egg whites from the grocery store ( more expensive but less detectible because they have no flavor). I add these just after cooking and stir in some cinnamon and sugar or fresh fruit and nobody notices the extra protein! A super great way to start the school day.

    I’ll answer my own question from above. This recipe uses quick oats. Also, a dash of salt (maybe 1/2 t. for the 4 c. mix) makes it taste better.

    I am assuming you used quick oats, like the quaker packets, right?

    Also, you can add the blueberry or raspberry nuggets from “Blue chip foods” instead of raisons.

    I can’t wait to try it….I’ve been looking for something like that! (PS…our cannery doesn’t have labels like that….do UT canneries offer more than out here?)

    I used my bulk bought regular rolled oats and it worked really well other than the boiling over….
    I’m thinking you could use dried berries of all kinds. We are going to try dried banana’s first.
    Thanks for sharing this recipe.

    Here’s a tip to avoid boiling over. Instead of microwaving the whole bowl, just heat up boiling water and pour it over the oatmeal and let it sit for a minute. My husband will put water on to heat up as he is the first one awake and then I just add it to the oatmeal as each child wakes up. Make sure the water is really hot though, so that it does cook the oatmeal.

    Oatmeal tip. For creamy (the oat flakes are almost gone), less chunky oatmeal, start with cold water mixed into the oats. For chunkier (more pronounced oat flakes) oatmeal, start with hot water and mix into the oats.
    Learned this from a Scottish publication years ago.

    There two kinds of rolled oatmeal at the LDS canneries–quick and regular; I used the larger flake–regular and it cooked in the microwave in 3 minutes and turned out wonderful. Our family cooks single portions and we use a plastic bowl nearly 7″ wide and 2-3/4″ high. Tubberware makes one in a 4-1/4 C or 1 liter size and Rubbermade makes a 1.5 Qt or 1.4 liter size. Oatmeal does not boil over in this size bowl; it is wide with upright (not slanted) sides. The oatmeal mix nearly boils to the top, though, in the 2nd to 3th minute in the microwave, but not over the top. No mess! This oatmeal mix is fabulous because its like expensive packs in the box at the store, but cheaper and healthier.

    I eat my cooked oatmeal with a frozen tri-berry mix from Costco (nuked for about one minute to thaw) and yogurt. My mother-in-law eats her oatmeal with fresh orange slices and orange yogurt. Yummy, try it! Also you can roll your own groats into oatmeal with a flaker device for the freshest, healthiest cereal.

    I also eat an 8-grain mix with cooked whole grains (cooked with double the amount of water for 45 minutes). I freeze the cooked grains in portion sizes and only have to cook a new batch every 2 months. This is the best, I mean the best constipation reliever in the world; I'm talking fiber+ here. It relieves diverticulosis and improves health tremendously. My husband teases me that I'm eating a pinecone. I do have my berries and yogurt on this; not for those used to sugary, processed cold cereal.
