Instant Oatmeal Mix

"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."

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

Wish I could rank this 4 1/2 stars, my family eats oatmeal enough that this could save us some money which is great! The flavor was good but next time I make it I plan to leave out the cardamom ...

I made my own Pumpkin Pie Spice 1 from this website. It is a little heavy on the ginger. I add a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar, which my kids enjoy doing anyway, to even it out. Thanks!
