    Love peanut butter. This recipe really perks up my oatmeal. I drizzled the honey then tasted it to adjust the sweetness. For those who complained it was too sweet, there may be sugar in your peanut butter. I used natural peanut butter with no added sugar or salt.

    This sounded so good. How could it not be. I love PB and Oatmeal. Then... I tried it, tasted nothing like I was anticipating. Will not be making again.

    I guess that I am not accustomed to eating an entire day's worth of sugar in one sitting. Way too sweet. Probably would never make again, unless I eliminated most of the honey.
