Quaker® Instant Oats have been one of my go to snacks considering that it's hearty and I feel better making this choice over chips. When we were in Tonga a few years ago, I had to go to the hospital. In the morning they fed me some oatmeal and it was the best thing I had eaten in three weeks. It was mainly cause I had starved myself and that it was something that finally tasted satisfying.
I decided to make a few tweaks to the recipe so that it would have a more seasonal taste. I used the Maple & Brown Sugar flavor of the Quaker® Instant Oats and instead of water or milk, I used apple juice. What a difference that tiny thing can make. They now have an indicator to fill up the liquid in the packet so you're not wasting dishes.I used 2/3 cup for each packet and used a total of two to fill me up. Add some dried cranberries and microwave on high for about 1.5 minutes, then stir.Once you've removed it from the microwave, add in your walnuts, dash of cinnamon and about 1/8 tsp. of fresh orange zest. Easy peasy.
