This was really satisfying, and tasty! I was looking for something more substantial than cold cereal, and this was it! I made it with the vanilla soy milk, and it had a great flavor. I did the microwave version today - I'm going to try the overnight version for tomorrow morning.

It wasn't great, but definitely not terrible either. I felt it kind of lost the banana flavor by mashing it up and stirring it in, but I guess that's my fault for preparing it that way. I definitely want to try it cold with sliced bananas sometime.

I found this recipe yesterday morning, and have eaten it 2 mornings in a row now. It is absolutely delicious! My 2 DS both liked it too! I made mine in the microwave with 1% dairy milk, and used pecans instead of walnuts. It was quick, easy, filling, and just like banana nut bread! Oh, I did add a sprinkle of nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla extract too. I think I'll try making it before bed tonight and eating it cold out of the fridge tomorrow! Thanks for a wonderful breakfast!

Seeing that I only had one overripe banana, I couldn't make banana bread. This oatmeal was the next best thing. I used dairy milk and microwaved for 2 minutes.

We had this for breakfast this morning and boy was it good. We made it in the microwave and I followed the directions as written. We didn't add the optional walnuts as we don't like them. I also used 2% milk as that is what we drink. This was quick and easy to make and tastes great. We will be making this more often in the morning.

Oh boy, this is super delicious! I mashed my banana and ate the dish hot instead of chilled. I plan to use this as a dessert or sweet snack instead of for breakfast. Thanks!

We make this at least a few times a week for breakfast - always the overnight refrigerated version. I love the fact that I can make it the night before, to save time in the morning. (I'll take whatever extra few minutes of sleep I can get!) Plus, it's a great way to eat oatmeal in the summer, since it's served cold. I use regular skim milk, and depending on the sweetness of the banana, can sometimes omit the brown sugar. If I'm trying to be ambitious, I'll add a teaspoon of ground flax seed in the morning. Yummy breakfast dish, and a great substitute for pre-packaged oatmeal. Thanks for posting!

This was a great breakfast! I used old-fashioned oats, dairy milk, and the optional walnuts. I don't have a microwave, so I cooked it on the stovetop for 5 minutes and added the mashed banana afterwards. My banana was very ripe, so I found that 1 tsp of brown sugar was plenty. This was so much better than those little packages of Quaker banana oatmeal! I'm going to try the overnight version for tomorrow. Thanks for sharing.

This was neat. I think I am a sugar addict because I wanted to add a bit more...mind you I used honey instead. I will make this again, and add some nutmeg, and maybe cinnamon...All in all this was a fast breakkie that was filing and good.
