Why buy instant oatmeal when you can make your own? I grew up on cinnamon sugar and peaches&cream as a kid. I know my mom bought them out of convenience, as most people do. But if you make your own (or even buy the instant original flavor) you skip the preservatives and tons of sugar. You can customize your own by adding your own toppings such as almonds, berries, peaches, walnuts, brown sugar, milk, honey or coconut.
I made a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast with honey, banana, blueberries, cinnamon & unsweetened shredded coconut. Mmm. It was just what I needed before a morning walk and bike ride.
