- quick cooking oats
NOTE: You’ll also need a supply of zipper bags to store them in.
1. Begin by putting about 1 cup of quick cooking oats in the blender and processing until it becomes a powder.
2. Next, into each zipper bag place 1/4 cup of unprocessed oats and 2 Tablespoons of powdered oats, along with a pinch of salt.
3. Guess what? That’s it. Seriously, that’s all you need, now prepare it the same way you would prepare any instant oatmeal you purchased at the store.
4. To make different varieties, add brown sugar, honey, maple syrup, diced and dried fruit, whatever strikes your fancy!
1. Begin by creating a fine oat powder by processing the dry rolled oats in a coffee grinder (preferred) or food processor.
2. To make oatmeal for your baby you will need a ration of 1 part oat powder to 8 parts water. 1 oz oat powder to 8 oz of water, for example. Bring water to a boil on the stove and slowly introduce the rice powder, whisking constantly until blended and smooth.
3. Reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring often to prevent sticking.
4. Cool completely and serve.
