Pinned it and tried it....DIY Oatmeal Packets

Pinned it, tried it, and LOVED this idea! As soon as I saw this floating around on Pinterest, I had to give it a try.

I made up a bunch of individual DIY oatmeal packets, using different add ins. It's so EZ to grab one in the morning and throw it in the microwave with some water.

 I adjusted the amount of ingredients to fit my needs. You can use 1/2 c oats and 1 c. water, or even 1/4 c. oats and 1/2 c. water. I find 1/3 c. oats and 2/3 c. water is just the right amount of oatmeal for me.

Here are a few of the packets that I made:

                                                                      Pecan cherry

                                                                     Cinnamon raisin

                                                                    Cranberry walnut

                                                                   Brown sugar pecan
