In a plastic sandwich bag or zip-lock “snack” bag, combine all the dry ingredients
Seal each bag and store in a cool, dry place.
When ready to use, place the contents into a cereal bowl and add ½ cup boiling water. Let stand about a minute before it’s ready to eat.
Use fresh cinnamon to bring out the flavor, and try different kinds of cinnamon to vary the taste. The Chinese cinnamon is a good starting point, and Ceylon cinnamon is also fine. Saigon or Vietnamese cinnamon has a stronger taste, which I personally like. This can be a good recipe to prepare with children, since they can work as a team to measure the ingredients and assemble each portion. For vegan oatmeal, use beet sugar or evaporated cane sugar instead of brown sugar.
