Instant Oatmeal, How to make your own

All these years I've been paying for "healthy ingredient" instant oatmeal for camping and hiking trips when I could have been making my own! Just be sure to get quick oats to make it with! We have been using it for camping a few times now, and it has worked great for my boys on their Scout hikes!  So Simple and even WAY cheaper than the not so good ingredient stuff! Plus it's easy to have everyone's favorite flavor on hand!
