1/2 cup oatmeal (quick oats)
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. brown sugar (optional)
1 tbsp. chopped walnuts or pecans
1 tbsp. raisins or craisins
1 tbsp. flax seed
1 tbsp. wheat germ

Add dry ingredients to a microwave safe bowl and add enough water to just cover the mixture.  Heat on high for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes.  When it is done, stir in milk to reach the desired consistency.  I like a lot of milk so I probably add 1/2 cup.

I usually make about 10 packets ahead of time so breakfast is ready to go.  I just put them into Ziploc sandwich bags which I reuse.  Making this mixture every morning might work for some people but doing it ahead of time is a lot easier.  I also found that over time I stopped needing the brown sugar because the sweetness of the raisins was so good.
