Homemade Instant Maple Brown Sugar Oatmeal

Because... I love oatmeal with all my heart.
I started making my own homemade instant maple brown sugar oatmeal a few years ago in the midst of trying to find easy ways to save money. I realized I was spending twice as much buying premade servings to get half of what I could have made for less. In addition to saving money, I love a good DIY recipe and being able to customize my own instant oatmeal. 

I prefer to buy the largest instant oatmeal container available and increasing my measurements accordingly. The recipe below usually lasts me 3-4 weeks. 


1 cup Instant Oatmeal, finely ground in blender or food processor
1 cup Instant Oatmeal, whole
1 Cup brown sugar
1 Tablespoon maple flavoring
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg


Combine brown sugar, maple flavoring, cinnamon and nutmeg in a large bowl. Mix well to thoroughly combine the extracts with the other ingredients.

Stir the finely ground and whole instant oats into the sugar mixture. Store in an airtight container.


  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 cup of water or milk
  1. Combine water and oats in a microwave safe container 
  2. Microwave on HIGH for 1 1/2 -2 minutes; stir then serve.
