Instant oatmeal is not instant. There is still preparation and cleanup involved, just the total cooking time is reduced. Traditional oatmeal only requires about 5 minutes of cooking time. Take this into account when comparing prices as the regular oatmeal normally costs about half the price of the instant. There is also a heavy premium on flavored, name-brand, instant, individually packaged oatmeal. Consider the store brand, regular variety for a huge savings. Add some fresh fruit, brown sugar, cinnamon, maple syrup or other favorite ingredients for a delicious and healthy breakfast.
