DIY Cinnamon Spice Instant Oatmeal

Getting reviews...
Sure, you could just buy flavored instant oatmeal at the supermarket. But DIY-ing is just as easy and makes for twice-as-tasty results packed with tons of crunchy, salty and sweet goodies, including nuts and seeds galore, raisins, warm spices and a bit of maple sugar. If you can't find maple sugar, it's okay to swap in equal parts light brown sugar.

  1. Combine the oats, pepitas, raisins, walnuts, sunflower seeds, maple sugar, cinnamon, salt and cardamom in an airtight container. Store at room temperature for up to 3 months.
  2. To serve, stir to make sure all the ingredients are evenly distributed (some tend to fall to the bottom). Combine 1/2 cup instant oatmeal mix with 1 cup water or milk in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high until the mixture is bubbling and much of the liquid is absorbed, about 3 minutes. Stir, then top with fresh berries.
