This tastes remarkably similar to the maple and brown sugar instant oatmeal varieties you buy in little packets. Save money by making your own! For each batch of oatmeal, combine 2/3 cup quick-cooking oats with 1 to 2 tablespoons of mix; add boiling water until desired consistency is reached.

i love this recipe between my son and husband who each eat 2 packets almost every morning i go through almost 2 boxes of the store bought every week! this recipe is great for me because i am an avid baker i have all these ingredients laying around my house already i also dehydrated some strawberries,blueberries,bananas,peaches blackberries and raspberries to make "cream" flavored oatmeals AWESOME!!! i just put the oats and mixture into ziplock baggies add the dried fruit and they just grab them up and throw it in the microwave with 2/3 c water and breakfast for way cheaper than before this is a 5 star recipe for taste ease and money saving!! thanks so much for posting it!

I make this all the time, but have changed the recipe quite a bit. I use 1 cup dry milk powder, 3/4 cup icing sugar, and 1/3 cup brown sugar. I don't use any salt. Then I add whatever spices and dried fruit I want. My stand by is about 2 tbsp cinnamon and 1 cup raisins, but I've also tried it with dried blueberries and it turned out great. I eat it every morning, and love that it isn't as sugary as the packaged instant oatmeal!

Leave out all spices but cinnamon for it to taste EXACTLY like Quaker maple and brown sugar
