Instead of turbanado sugar, I used honey in it's place. I also used old fashioned oats only because that was what I had on hand. I shared this with my oldest son--we both thought this was very good. My banana was quite ripe so the honey might not even be necessary next time I make this.

Chocolate for breakfast - what could be better? This not only tastes delicious, but happens to be good for you too! Since I didn't have any almonds on hand I subbed walnuts and vanilla extract which proved to be a nice flavor combination. I cut back on the sugar a bit (personal preference). I topped this with a little sliced banana, toasted walnuts, and coconut. Thanks for a great recipe *~Lissa~*!

I would make a few changes to this recipe as I found it quite rich and sweet. The almond flavoring also put it a bit over the top. I'd replace that with vanilla extract and reduce the sugar (how much you use depends on the ripeness of your banana) and cocoa. I would also use toasted almonds. This could possibly be a good way to get oatmeal into my kids, so I'll try it out on them. Thanks for the recipe!
