I love the convenience and the yummy flavors that you get in prepackage oatmeal. What I don't love is the sodium, extra sugar, and who knows how many preservatives are in each packet. They can get pretty pricey if you are eating them often as well so I prefer to make my own.  The other benefit to making your own is that you can create custom flavors with high-quality real ingredients. I put together 3 comforting fall flavor combinations for these Homemade Oatmeal Packets. Store bought may get you strawberry or an apple cinnamon but you won't find amazing flavors like Cranberry Almond, Pumpkin Mocha Latte, or Banana Nut Bread in those little sealed pouches! This  version is also dairy free and gluten free (make sure you get gluten free certified oatmeal)

  2. I love this idea! I travel a lot and go through a lot of instant oatmeal – I much prefer the thought of making my own and knowing exactly what goes into it..
