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.
