The idea for these instant oatmeal cups came from a college care package, actually.
A few weeks back, I was putting together a care package for my oldest niece who is currently in her first semester of college.
Maybe some quick oats waaaaaaaaayy down on the bottom shelf...

They may differ slightly depending on which type of oats you have.
I cooked the oats according to the directions (only takes about 5 minutes), then added 3 Tbsp of brown sugar and 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. I don’t like my oats super sweet, so I didn’t add much sugar.Will prepared oatmeal keep for a week in the 'fridge? I only use the slow-cooking kind and just nuke it in the morning.
