I used oat groats so my cooking time was a little longer than stated. I subbed chia seeds for the flax and topped my cereal with pecans instead of walnuts. I loved my breakfast this morning! Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I made this this morning and I thought it was o.k. I think it would be better with a little brown sugar or maybe even a little more banana to sweeten it up a little. I'll try it again with one or the other. (I didn't have time to add anything to it this morning.) Read More

I made this recipe this morning. The cocoa taste with the steel-cut oats texture was really interesting. It needed a little sweetness so my wife and I added a packet of Stevia and some blueberries. That sweetened it nicely. Overall I think we will do this recipe again but not too often. Read More

Wasn't sure about this at first but the more I ate the more I liked it! Making it for the second time this morning. Makes enough for at least two breakfasts just reheat in the microwave! Thanks for a quick and easy (and filling!) recipe! Read More

3 Tbsp honey perked it up some but it lacked enough cocoa flavor for me. Perhaps I should have doubled all the spices or the suggestion of serving with maple syrup and blueberries should be written into recipe. It's an incredibly healthy recipe though. Read More
