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!

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.)

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!
