Homemade Gluten-Free Instant Oatmeal


Recipe courtesy Frannycakes

  • 175 grams (2 cups) + 35 grams (6 tbsp) gluten-free instant oats, divided
  • 76 grams (6 tbsp) sugar*
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • 30 grams (3 tbsp) chia seeds
  • Mix-ins (optional, see suggestions below)


  1. Grind the smaller amount of oats in a food processor or spice mill.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, a stir to make sure the ingredients are evenly dispersed.
  3. If you want to make all your baggies the same flavor, add your mix-ins now.
  4. Divide your ingredients evenly amongst 6 snack-sized plastic zip bags. If you want to add different flavors, you can add them to each baggie.
  5. To prepare, empty the baggie with your oat mixture into a bowl or mug. If you want to make it in a microwave, add a scant half cup of water and heat for 1:30- 2mins. Stir well and allow to cool slightly. If you hate the microwave, you can add a scant half cup of boiling water and let it sit until the oats are tender, about 3 minutes.
These are suggestions per serving, so to make the whole recipe the same, you would have to multiply these amounts by 6.
