    Amazing! I doubled the recipe (for my daycare kids) & made it just as written, except I only used 3 T of brown sugar instead of 4 and it was perfect! Thanks so much! The kids LOVED it :)

    Mmm good! Have had banana and oatmeal before, but the addition of the vanilla and cinnamon makes this one better then the others we have had. Made as written and found the oatmeal just a bit thin, next time will cut the water to 1 1/2 cups. Thanks so much for the post.

    Very good. With the banana it is very filling, and definitely served 2 big eaters at our house. Like another reviewer, I skipped the margarine and halved the brown sugar, since we do not like things too sweet.

    I used a very ripe banana so the taste was really intense.

    Like banana bread in a bowl, all warm and bananaliscious - this was a wonderful brekkie this morning! I reduced the margaine/brown sugar/walnuts to save a few calories and never use milk or half-n-half on my oatmeal - and it was just perfect me. I'm sure I'll be making this again and again this winter!

    This was very good. Used pecans instead of walnuts (that is what I had on hand) and milk instead of half-and-half (and didn't measure). Yum!


<p>First, I'd like thank everyone who reviews my recipes. I can't thank each of you personally although I try. <br /><br />I Live in central Virginia, 5 miles from where I grew up, w/ my Husband of 17 years and my beautiful daughter. She is 10 and is the joy of my life. We waited for a long time to be blessed with a child and it is the best thing I've ever done. Be a mother. <br /><br />I love to cook. We eat very healthy, after a life altering experience at 31 I've been on a journey to be healthy and lose weight.&nbsp; I've lost 50 lbs and have kept most all of it off for the last 9 years. There are always fluxs, durring stressful times, but I've mananged to keep most of the weight off.&nbsp; My best advice to anyone trying to lose weight is to remember that it didn't get there overnight and it won't come off overnight. I've never said I was on a diet. It is a lifestyle.</p> <p>When Zaar first changed to Food I took a short hiatus. I was going thru a very hard time in life and was completely unmotivated to do anything and thus gave up my hosting duties on Holiday Tag.&nbsp; But now with a new perspective I'm hoping to get back to cooking and tagging.</p> <p><br /><br />Things I've participated in..... <br /><img src= alt=/ /> <br /><img src= alt=/ /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /> <img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo /><img src=/ alt= /><img src= border=0 alt=PAC /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo /><img src= alt=/ /> <br /><br />And in honor of my mother and in rememberence of my sister in law. <br /><img src= alt=/ /></p>
