I've been wanting to try making a homemade version and finally got around to it this past weekend.
I used the recipes from this blog and Amy helped me mix everything together. We put a few servings in baggies until I decided that we could just put it all in a container and scoop out the amount we want. We made a double batch of the strawberry kind (minus the dairy creamer). (We happened to have freeze dried strawberries on hand) but the blog has recipes for other flavors too.
I like that with making our own instant oatmeal I am in charge of the sugar amount. If you are used to store bought instant oatmeal packets you might want to add a little more sugar than the recipe calls for and gradually decrease it each time you make the recipe as a subtle way to break your family into a less sugary breakfast.
Hope you like this as much as we do!
