One of my favorite on-the-go breakfasts are homemade instant oatmeal jars. They are quick, completely portable and so, so simple to make! I throw one of these in my work bag in the morning, fill with water from our hot water dispenser at the office and wa-la! Oatmeal over Excel spreadsheets!
These stars of the morning rush out the door are also super versatile and can be made in a plethora of combinations–your imagination is the limit! (Just be sure to use dry ingredients that will re-hydrate easily.) Not only are these easy to use, they are easy to make in bulk and store for the week/month/etc. for your family!
This week, since I have dried apples and apple pie spice on hand from earlier in our Applepolooza series, I figured I would make an apple pie version of these oatmeal jars. And let me tell you, that was a very good decision!

Apple Pie Oatmeal Jars
This recipe will make one jar of oatmeal.
1/2 Cup Quick Oats (I use these.)
1 T. Powdered Milk
2 T. Brown Sugar
1 t. Apple Pie Spice
1/4 C. Crushed Dehydrated Apples
1/2-1 C. Hot water
- Using a canning funnel, layer the ingredients in the jars starting with the oatmeal, then milk, brown sugar, apple pie spice and top with the dried apples.
- Put a lid on the jar and store until you are ready to use it!
- When you are ready to use it, pour in 1/2-1 C Hot water (enough to cover the apples)
- Recover with lid.
- Let the oatmeal sit 2-3 minutes or until everything has re-hydrated.
- Uncover and enjoy!
