    It’s worth a try. I think it’s a little too sweet. I think the honey OR brown sugar would be sufficient. I omitted cinnamon. Overall a tasty, fairly healthy recipe.

    I made this on Saturday. I used unsweetened almond milk instead of cow's milk. I also added a tablespoon of peanut butter for some added flare. I omitted the sugar and honey and just used maple syrup. I also used regular old fashioned oats. Winner winner!

    This is exactly what I was hoping for. I have made it 3 mornings in a row. It is so good! I topped it with dried cranberries and pecan pieces.

    It wasn't bad, but wasn't good. I am only 12 and I might have messed up the ingredients but it's still ok ;)

    So delish! I like a few less bananas, though. Almost doesn't need extra sweetener.

    Very quick and easy. My family loved it. I didn't have bananas So I used 1/2 cup applesauce. Although we love bananas So next time I'll use that.

    My kids really liked this and scraped their bowls clean!! I often turn to instant oatmeal packets for quick breakfasts before school, but this is very "do-able" on a weekday morning and I feel better about feeding it to my kids. Keeper!!
