Apple-Cinnamon Oatmeal Mix

I make up a large batch of this and keep it in a air tight container so the kids can easily make it for breakfast before school. If your kids don't like the dried apples feel free to substitute any dried fruit.

6 cups quick cooking oats
1 1/3 cups nonfat dry milk powder
1 cup dried apples
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. Store in an airtight container in a cool dry place for up to 6 months. Yield: 8 cups total.

To prepare oatmeal: Shake mix well. In a saucepan, bring 1 cup water to a boil; slowly stir in 1 cup mix. Cook and stir over medium heat for 1 minute. Remove from the heat. Cover and let stand for 1 minute or until oatmeal reaches desired consistency.
