I have a love of the packaged Apple Cinnamon Cream of Wheat from my youth. It was and still is my very favorite.
I haven't been able to find it. Not just recently. I haven't been able to find it in years.
Last week, we were in Amish Country. I found a giant bag of plain Cream of Wheat. "I can try to make it myself!" I got to work.
I was on the hunt for dried apples. I couldn't find those, either. I did find freeze dried apples on the Target clearance rack yesterday. It's kind of what I wanted anyhow. I didn't want the squishy dried ones.
I individually bagged 15 servings. (I made a total of 16 servings, but had to test drive one.)
It doesn't look like the Cream of Wheat of my youth. It's a bit more cinnamony than what I had, too. It is still good.

1/4 cup plain cream of wheat
1 T raw sugar

Dump your ingredients in a snack bag. You'll have to figure out how much water you like. I'm not for watery cream of wheat. Boil your water and have at it.
