I had this for breakfast this morning minus the dates(that would make it really heavy and too much to have in the morning for me). I did not have cocoa powder on hand, so I used Nestle's Nesquik's chocolate powder as a substitute which worked very well. I did not use any brown sugar either at the end as it was sweet enough for me. Served hot this is DELICIOUS! I am so thrilled to have this recipe.

I love this concept, though I modified it heavily. I used dried apricots (that I chopped and dredged in cocoa powder), added some splenda, and used fast cooking oats (not instant). I also sprinkled some extra splenda on top. It was chocolatey and filling. Nice for a cold winter morning. Thanks!person found this review Helpful.

I really wanted to like this... really... but it was just kind of weird. I found that the dates didn't really dissolve very much, and I kept biting into bits of date skin which was just...weird. The dates did make this a bit more gooey than normal oatmeal, which I didn't really care for. I found that this was really, really not sweet. I added 6 dates for a half recipe, hoping that would sweeten this up, but it didn't really. I added a tsp of sucanat when serving, but it still tasted strange to me. I just wasn't keen on the flavor of this (I guess maybe I don't like the combination of the flavor of dates with chocolate?) nor the texture. Sorry, Jenny... but this one just wasn't for me.people found this review Helpful. You can only vote others' reviews helpful or not helpful... Was this review helpful to you?
