Unfortunately no one in our family enjoyed this. It was mushy and had a very bland taste. We added mashed bananas for sweetness but would not do this again. Read More

I bought a big bag of this by the pound at the local health foods store and wasn't sure how to cook it. Thank you for the recipe. I used bananas because I didn't have any plums as well as a tablespoon of ground flax seed for added fiber. Sooo yummy! I like how creamy it is. Read More

This is so filling and keeps me on the go until lunch. I usually add 1/2 tsp of Natural Molasses brown sugar 1 tsp of pure clear honey 1/2 of a small chopped banana and a pinch of ground cinnamon. Read More

I accidentally put the oat bran in the pot before it was boiling but it worked fine. It was a little but bland at first so I added some honey. Yum! So I'll give it 5 stars with the honey. Read More

I love oat bran! Since I don't like Splenda I add in dark brown sugar for a sweeter taste. I'll try dates next time as well (since I have those sitting around). Read More

This was a great quick breakfast with a few healthy modifications: instead of sugar substitute 1/2 t of brown sugar and 1/2 t of honey. Plus 1 tbs of wheat germ. After reading the other reviews I decided to add half of a mashed banana yummy! Plus a half ounce of walnuts for extra protein. I will definitely make this recipe again! Read More
