    I used 1.25 oatmeal 1.25 bread flour. I used yogurt and canola oil... And i added 1 cup each: chocolate chips and shredded coconut I've never heard of mixing yogurt in... Certainly i was baking longer then suggested (about 25min) But these are soooooo good! New family favourite! Thanks for sharing this.

    I used leftover oatmeal in these. I also added a tablespoon of beet juice so they would be pink...this was for the little girl who was not enjoying the big or the little brother today. For oil I use coconut, and added chocolate chips, trader joes orange cranberries, raisins, and pecans....just the last bit in the bags because I was organizing the cupboards...they smell yummy. The kids loved them, and since all are grumpy today I think that is a compliment. I think the recipe is pretty easy to read if you decide what you are going to do and do it. I often change recipes to make them healthier, but if you think a recipe is there to follow with no thought...this may not be for you. Great recipe, thanks for sharing. I am printing this off as a emergency recipe...options are great when you don't want to get groceries in the middle of a snowstorm with three kids under five years.

    I will keep this recipe around ALWAYS! Easily made gluten-free...and those brown bananas are gone! For the first try, I went with crunchy peanut butter for the fat, 1 C. mashed bananas and 1/2 C. mini bittersweet chocolate bits for add-ins, and needed to use some almond milk.....with the oats, they were DIVINE! A great grab-and-go breakfast for the college kid, too! Not that he got more than three! My bad! SO GLAD I stumbled across this recipe! THANKS!
