Chocolate Cinnamon Bun Oatmeal On-the-Go

Breakfast is a meal that my hubby needs on-the-go because he often works early mornings. Since flavored oatmeal packets are expensive and aren't very filling, I decided to make my own oatmeal mix. It's saved us money, and they taste good! It's a simple recipe, and it's guaranteed to not be bland oatmeal (though it's also guaranteed to not be super healthy :]) Here's the recipe for one zip lock bag of oatmeal, which is about 3 or 4 servings:

-2 cups oats
-1/2 cup chocolate chips
-1/4 cup brown sugar
-1 tablespoon cinnamon

These measurements are just an estimate since I wing it whenever I make a bag. It's an easy recipe to tweak. 

Once you want to make a serving of the oatmeal (which is about a quarter of the oats in the ziplock bag), just add enough water to soak the oats with a little water resting on top. Microwave for about 45 seconds to a minute.

What are your favorite breakfast recipes?
