    The cocoa added a unique flavor to the mix. It was very good without being to sweet. If you like sweet oatmeal this isn't for you. I don't though so it was perfect with the bonus of lots of antioxidants from the blueberries! - 3/27/07

    I could swallow it. I had to add splenda, but then it had that chemical taste. I was sad that I couldn't taste the chocolate. My daughter(an oatmeal lover) didn't finish her bowl. - 6/2/08

    I really did not like the cocoa added to the mixture. It really needed more sweetness added with that in there I wanted to add more brown surgar and I am trying to stay away from the butter and surgar. I may try with just blueberries next time or stawberries but I know I did not like the cocoa. - 3/26/07

    Instead of the brown sugar I added splenda. I eat oatmeal with flax and blueberries everyday, but not with chocolate. I know chocolate is healthy so it is an interesting way to get it in without a lot of calories. - 3/25/09

    This was very plain and almost pasty tasting. I had to add additional water just so I could swallow it. It is an interesting recipe, but I think I will stick to my homemade apple cinnamon oatmeal; it is lower in calories and it tastes much more to my liking. - 5/3/07

    Interesting flavor as is. I HAD to add some splenda and a touch of milk though. It was a little too plain for me. It doesn't taste chocolaty, which was a disappointment, although it doesn't taste like plain outmeal either. I'll try it again with more experimenting - 4/21/07

    This was very good. I don't like a lot of sweet things so I didn't even use a whole tbls of brown sugar. I drizzled a little maple syrup on my boyfriends for some sweetness but I ate my mostly plain. We both thought it was very good and will make it again. - 2/21/10

    I ate it this morning, after adding a packet of Splenda and 1/4C milk. Fresh blueberries would taste better. The frozen ones are too chewy. It made more than two servings. It's pretty good, and I'll have it again and again. Thanks to Coach Dean! - 2/20/11

    I hate chocolate, so I use cinnamon instead of cocoa. I also use steel cut oats because I love the chewier texture.
    Trying this recipe is what inspired me to start eating my morning oats.

    I made a big pot of this and found it pretty bland. I had to add more brown sugar to be able to finish it. I think whole milk (more nutrients) would be much better than water, or maybe mashing in a banana near the end of the cooking stage would pack more flavor. - 4/21/15
