Cheap & Easy Oatmeal Packets

 I love a nice bowl of oatmeal! What I don't like is the fake flavor, sugar laden, and artificial chemicals & ingredients in store bought oatmeal packets. My solution? Pre-made clean eating oatmeal packets that only cost .10 instead of .50! They taste way better and help you reach your goals faster.

It is as simple as putting a few ingredients into a snack size zip-lock baggie or small container. Then they are ready to go and you are saving time and money not to mention saving yourself from a bunch of artificial ingredients. 

My all time favorite is blueberry pecan! just throw in a handful of fresh blueberries and some toasted walnuts and you are good to go! I love to chop the pecans and toss them into a dry pan and toast on medium heat for a few minutes until you can smell them. right at the end I will sometimes spray them with a bit of coconut oil and sprinkle them with a bit of salt. 


Time: 10 minutes  Containers: 1 Yellow 1/2 Purple .25 blue 


  • 1/4 cup Quick oats per baggie (gluten free if needed)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of salt (Do NOT skip this, you will regret it)
  • 1-2 tablespoon of toasted pecans, walnuts, or almond slivers per baggie ( Pecans are my fav!)
  • 1-2 teaspoons of 100% pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup of blueberries
  • Snack size baggies (I usually make 10 at a time)



  1. Place open baggies on counter
  2. Add oats, cinnamon, salt and nuts to baggie. Close baggie and store in cool dry place.
  3. When ready to eat dump baggie contents into bowl or container, add blueberries and syrup
  4. Add hot water to your liking, stir and let sit for a few minutes. ENJOY

These baggies are so versatile! you can add any dried fruit, coconut, nuts, fresh fruit, thawed frozen fruit, chocolate chips for the kids or as a nice treat for us, Peanut butter. really the sky is the limit. I have loved the pecan blueberry flavor so I have not ventured too far outside that because it hits the spot each time! Also I sometimes add a tablespoon or 2 of my easy homemade granola for an extra crunch!
