DIY Instant Oatmeal Cups

If you are in a hurry in the morning, or often run late and have to skip breakfast, make these easy instant oatmeal cups and stash them in your desk at work for a quick, hearty, and warm breakfast! You can either make these in paper cups with lids, or for a more sustainable option, make them in glass mason jars! Experiment with your own flavor combinations, but remember to use dry, shelf stable ingredients.
