Healthier Instant Oatmeal

I need more options for a quick breakfast. This mix is easy to make on the weekend, far cheaper and healthier than the store-bought varieties, and even easier to mix up in the morning. I keep some at work, and just add the hot water from the cooler – stir, and enjoy!

Oatmeal Base
5 c / 450 g old fashioned oatmeal/rolled oats
2 c vanilla protein powder
1 c flax meal
1 c chia seeds
¼ c brown sugar (optional)
pinch salt

Cherry Almond Oatmeal
Add to oatmeal base:
1½ c dried cherries
1 c toasted slivered almonds
1 Tbsp cinnamon

Cinnamon Raisin Oatmeal
Add to oatmeal base:
1 Tbsp cinnamon
2 tsp ginger powder
1/2 tsp cardamom
1 c toasted walnuts
1 1/2c raisins

Chocolate Peanut Butter
Add to oatmeal base:
Substitute chocolate protein powder for the vanilla
1 Tbsp cocoa powder
1/4 c PB2 (powder peanut butter in natural food aisle)

To Serve:
Add 1/2 cup of hot water to 1/2 cup of the oatmeal mix, stir until creamy – enjoy!

*Keep in mind – all amounts are approximate – just make it to your taste. Also, I never really measure when I mix this up.
