    I liked this a lot. added some heavy cream and a packet of Stevia to mine. very good. I still miss the taste of brown sugar but I'm not going to worry about it til I get my weight down. This is very good accompaniment to eggs to fill you up. - 4/25/10

    I substituted PB2, splenda and an extra TBSP of water for the PB and half the recipe was only 85 cals and super tasty. The texture seems a little strange, but this was the first time I've had hot flaxmeal this way. - 8/2/12

    I made this for breakfast today as it's cold and snowing so I was missing my oatmeal. Let me tell you, I won't be missing my hot cereal anymore! This was delicious. I also added the Stevia and 1 tbsp heavy cream and SF Syrup. - 12/8/10

  • I' have been eating this for breakfast for years. I add 1 tbspn chia seeds, use 1 tbspn peanut butter and quarter tspn cinammon. Add boiling water - the chia seeds will thicken on standing - then either a cut up Kiwifruit or half cup thawed frozen mixed berries. Delicious! - 1/22/15

  • I must have made this wrong. The taste was good. The consistency was disgusting. Peanut flavored snot. Any suggestions for fixing that? - 6/18/13

  • It was good and really filled me up. The flax was slimy and that took away from the taste for me. - 9/10/12

  • I made half this recipe as a serving = 4 Weight watchers points plus for half of it...the whole thing would have been 9 points plus.
    Added a bit of cocoa powder and some splenda to it... very tasty.

  • Really good! I'm concerned about how the flax is going to react - that's a lot of flax at one sitting :) Very tasty! - 12/28/10

  • Super tasty, and such an awesome way to increase fiber intake! I added a little Splenda and about 3 T. sugarfree syrup. Reminded me of ooey gooey cinnamon roll oatmeal. Will definitely be making this on a regular basis, because you can only eat so many eggs for breakfast! Thanks! - 7/8/09
