Pulverize one cup of the oats in your blender until powdery.
In each of 8 plastic baggies, combine 2 Tbsp of the powdered oats, 1/4 cup unprocessed oats and 1/8 teaspoon salt (optional).
To serve, empty contents of one bag into a bowl. Add 3/4 cup boiling water. Stir and let stand for 2 minutes. For thicker oatmeal, use less water – for thinner oatmeal, use more water.
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon white sugar
1 Tablespoon raisins
1 Tablespoon chocolate chips
