I actually find this too filling so use 1/3 cup oatmeal and 3/4 cup water. As others suggested I substituted ground flax seed for the oil. I also left out the honey. I didn't have soy milk so added some cottage cheese and about 1/4 cup berries. I have had this for 5 days in a row and think I could and will eat it every day for breakfast. EDIT: I first reviewed this 10 months ago and I am still eatin it at least 4-5X a week. It is healthy and fills me up so I'm never snack through the mornings. UPDATE: It's been 2 years and I still eat this at least 4-5X a week with a big spoon of cinnamon mixed in. Read More

This was very bland. I tried adding cinnamon and nutmeg but it didn't seem to help. Won't make this again. Read More

Great recipe - I added some cinnamon nutmeg and a dash of vanilla extract. Instead of topping it with soy milk I topped it with a huge spoonful of fat free honey flavored organic greek yogurt. This was very filling and very healthy. Read More

This is a good base recipe but I have had to make some changes to suit my personal tastes. My biggest problem is the flaxseed oil... it does not combine well and looks oily. Not very appetizing. So I used ground flaxseed. I also use skim milk instead of soy since I don't like soy. Otherwise this is certainly a good way to make oatmeal even healthier! Read More

Excellent easy fast breakfast. Tasty way to get beneficial flaxseed oil. I added 1 Tablespoon of dried fruit bits and used vanilla soy milk. This recipe is good AND good for you too! Read More

I tried this recipe for the first time yesterday and liked it so much I had it again for breakfast this morning. This breakfast is suprisingly filling. A big plus to this recipe is that it is quick to make and it's easy to clean up afterward. It's healthy too. Read More

This was good. I used ground organic flaxseed sprinkled on top after cooking the oatmeal and organic agave in place of the honey. Read More

If you don't normally like oatmeal you probably won't like this recipe either. For me it isdelicious and the wheat germ provides a wonderful texture. Use the honey at your discretion. I only use 1.5 teaspoons. This is the only way I make oatmeal now. Thanks. Read More

After 5 years of making fun of my husband for making and eating oatmeal EVERY day on the week I have been enlightened! This is amazing! I can hardly believe that something so good for you can be this filling and taste so good. I followed the directions as written added half a teaspoon of splenda brown sugar (Only 10 calories) and some organic raisins. I also use vanilla soy milk. The result is a decadent almost desert like breakfast that keep me going all morning. I use ground flex instead of the oil but I find the wheat germ and flax has done wonders for my energy. This is a great recipe and I am SO grateful to have found it. I am on the oatmeal bandwagon now! Read More
