Multigrain Oatmeal with Nuts

*updated 2/3/11 with corrected serving size and cooking instructions.

I recently found a few boxes of instant multigrain oatmeal on clearance. We loved them and when I went back to look for more, I found out that it was a closeout and they no longer make it. So I made a trip to the bulk section of Spouts (a new favorite grocery store of mine) and made my own mix. We're loving it and, if the nutritionists are right, so are our hearts. =)

6 cups of rolled oats
1/2 cup flaxseed (ground)
1 cup rolled barley, wheat bran or wheat germ
1/2 cup amaranth grain
1/2 cup almond meal
1 cup chopped nuts (pecans/walnuts)
1 heaping Tbs cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar

Mix and put in a Ziplock back or airtight container. Store in the refrigerator or freezer.
Use 3/4 cup of mix and 1 1/2 cups water or milk. Microwave 1 minute. Stir and microwave 30 seconds more if needed.

This looks so good--my kids are big oatmeal fans and I think they'd love this! Thanks!

By rolled oats, do you mean old-fashioned oats? Just wondering because it seems like it would take longer to cook.
