Convience Food Wednesday

I love the new Quaker oat instant oatmeal packets of Healthy Harvest Oatmeal, but I do not like paying the 3.99 per box price!
Here is my alternative:
1 box sandwich Ziploc baggies
6 cups oatmeal
1 tablespoon salt
1/2 cup powdered milk
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup pecan pieces
1/2 cup whole flax seeds

Mix the ingredients. Place 1/2 cup into each baggie. Makes about 16 baggies full. Heat with 3/4 cup boiling water and serve. Tastes just as wonderful as the store brand at half the cost. Be sure to re-use the bags to save money too.
