I doubled this recipe for my two boys. I followed the recipe exact, only I sprinkled more brown sugar over the top, then poured a little milk over that in each bowl. They seemed to like it, even though my oldest boy said it needed more sugar. Next time, I'll make this with milk and add more brown sugar.


I'm hooked on this. I've eaten it every day since I found the recipe a few weeks ago. It's really good!


It's great! I didn't use the eggs and didn't have flax seed, but followed the recipe otherwise. What a wonderful dish to make when I'm not super hungry and need a smaller, tasty dish. To make it even better, add some honey on top! I also made this once with 2/3 cup milk instead of water - yum!
