    I substituted Splenda for the white sugar and doubled the amount of cocoa, (based on others' feedback.) These brownies had a very interesting, almost bouncy, texture. The flavor was very good. The bananas' flavor definitely stood out and the cocoa was more of a subtle, supporting flavor. - 7/28/09

    I certainly agree with the comments about how it's not sweet or chocolatey enough. For me it was too spongy to qualify as a brownie but will make them agian perhaps leaving or adding much more chocolate. - 7/8/10

    I substituted unsweetened apple sauce for the oil, and regular oatmeal for the instant (because it was all I had in the house), and whole wheat flour for the all-purpose. These were absolutely delicious, and really healthy too! I'm definitely making these again. I bet they'd be amazing frozen. - 10/28/07

  • My roommates, friends, and I didn't care for the texture -- especially not when they were expecting a "brownie". The consensus was "springy, chocolate-y oatmeal". The flavor was good (I followed others' suggestions for double chocolate), but I probably won't be making these again. - 5/17/12

  • I made these into brownie bites, and i found that they didn't taste very sweet or chocolatey. they tasted heavily of oats and banana, and they tasted more like a muffin. It wasn't too bad, because i was taking them to a health food party so sweet food was not really expected. - 3/4/12
