You can make this Berry-Nut Oatmeal jar right before serving or whip it up ahead of time.

You can even stash one in your desk at work for a fast meal on hectic days.

Fact about instant oatmeal: it contains about the same nutrients as regular oats … but it gets a bad rap because it’s usually packed with added sugars. 

Since you’re making your OWN mix with this recipe, you can avoid all that extra sugar.

Try experimenting with different nuts and berries! Or instead of stirring in the hot liquid, mix in ½ cup (115 g) of plain Greek yogurt and let sit for 1-2 hours (or overnight).

Your instant oatmeal mix will keep for 4-6 weeks in a cool, dry place.

Berry-Nut Instant Oatmeal

(serves 1)

  • ½ cup (40 g) instant oatmeal
  • 2 Tbsp freeze-dried strawberry or blueberry
  • 1 tbsp chopped nuts (walnuts, almonds, pecans, etc.)
  • 1 tbsp chia seed
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon (to taste)
  • ½ to 1 tsp coconut sugar, to taste (or other dry sweetener)
  • ½ cup (120 ml) boiling liquid (water or your favorite milk)

Place the instant oatmeal, freeze-dried berries, nuts, chia seed, cinnamon, and sugar in a Mason jar. Seal tightly if you’re making this ahead of time. 

When it’s time to eat, simply pour the boiling liquid over the oat mixture and stir to combine. Let sit for 3-4 minutes. It’s time to eat!
