  1. Very good! I used a 1/2 cup of rolled wheat flakes, omitted the maple syrup, and used 1 packet of Truvia to sweeten. Pretty yummy, I'll make this again!
  2. This was amazing! I combined the oats, banana and water then cooked for 3.5 minutes in the microwave. I added the pumpkin pie spice, sugar-free syrup, and some cinnamon and stevia afterwards. It smelled great and tasted so good! I'll definitely make this again, thanks for the recipe.
  3. Wow. One of the best oatmeal recipes ever. No changes, just reduced oatmeal to 1/2 cup like other reviewers. No comparision to any of the prepacked flavors. Thanks so much!
  4. Delicious way to have oatmeal. It does taste reminiscent of banana bread. I left out the Splenda and the sweetness was just right for me with the maple syrup. I also used less salt and did a 2/3 portion, as others did. Had to top it with nuts, since my banana bread would always have that too - it went beautifully!
  5. I gave this recipe 3 stars. I made this for my breakfast. I used Log Cabin sugar free syrup as that's all I could find on the lines of maple syrup. I will next time not used salt. This was to salty for me. Overall this was good and easy to make. Thanks for posting! Christine (internetnut)


  1. Yum, I made this for my toddler daughter & I to share, we both really enjoyed it. Cooked for about 2 mins in the microwave. The only changes I made was to leave out the Splenda & I used milk instead of water for cooking to give a creamier consistency. This was a really nice brekky which will be on regular rotation in our house from now on. Thanks for posting!
