Instant Oatmeal (instead of packets)

Instead of buying oatmeal packets at the store (at exorbitant costs) we suddenly realized we can make it ourselves!!!

Shake or mix the following together in a large container or ziplock bag, making sure to separate the raisins.

6 C "instant" or "quick" oats (these have been processed by heat/knife to cook up in hot water without being boiled. Higher on the glycemic index than old fashioned oats or steel cut but is more convenient)

1/2 tea salt
1/4 C brown sugar (packed)
2 tea cinnamon
1/2 tea nutmeg
1 C raisins

When you're ready to eat, scoop up desired amount into a bowl, add boiling water and stir. Let sit for a couple minutes-- it will fluff up.
