    Wow this recipe is YUMMMMY!!! Doesn't look like enough oatmeal but it is...also if you do not have a blender you can just mash the banana with a fork and add it in the oatmeal with the milk and mix together. Excellent oatmeal recipe! - 6/8/10

    I upped the milk to 1/2 cup and the peanut butter to 1 Tbsp for 260 calories and lots of yummy flavor. Expected it to need some sweet (thinking Splenda), but it was great without. Yummy - thanks for sharing! Will rotate this with my regular oatmeal recipe. - 3/8/10

    I'm not a huge fan of oatmeal, but this was wonderful! I used 1/4 cup of soy milk instead of skim milk and a whole banana instead of half. I also added 1/4 cup of raisins, and my oh my was this ever tasty! Thank you very much, I will be making this again! - 4/5/10

    You don't need to blend the banana with the milk. Just slice the banana thinly & stir it in with the oatmeal & milk. After cooking, the banana is very soft, so stir it to break up the slices. I prefer getting little bits of banana in a spoonful. You won't have to wash the blender. - 3/15/13

    I prefer regular old-fashion oatmeal not microwave.
    I use a 3:1 water and milk for the liquid noted in the cooking directions.
    one banana mashed, 1 tbsp honey, cinnamon to taste and a little brown sugar.
    Cook the oatmeal first and than add in the other remaining ingedients. - 9/30/12

  • All I can say is WOW! This is the best way to eat porridge, I used a 1/4 of a soft banana (better then throwing the whole banana out) & added 30 sec more & a 1/4 c milk to the prepared porridge, I really recommend that others should try this mix, lovely creamy taste. - 2/15/14

  • delicious! I added 1 level tablespoon shia seeds and instead of smooth peanut butter, I -mistakenly- added the crunchy variety and I think it's better as it adds crunchiness to the texture.
