1⁄2 cup rolled oats

3 tablespoons dried milk

2 tablespoons wheat germ

1⁄4 cup raisins

1⁄4 cup almonds (or pecans)

1 tablespoon sugar

Pinch of salt

2 tablespoons almond butter


Combine dry ingredients (oats, dried milk, wheat germ, raisins, nuts, sugar, and salt) in a zip-top bag. Measure almond butter into a spillproof container or squeeze tube.


Mix dry ingredients with 11⁄4 cups water in a pot. Stir to combine, breaking up any dried milk lumps as the water warms. Bring to a boil and simmer for about five minutes (until most of the water is absorbed), stirring occasionally. Take off heat and mix in almond butter.
