I doubled this recipe for my two boys. I followed the recipe exact, only I sprinkled more brown sugar over the top, then poured a little milk over that in each bowl. They seemed to like it, even though my oldest boy said it needed more sugar. Next time, I'll make this with milk and add more brown sugar.

Not very good...I love peanut butter, and oatmeal is pretty good, but this did not taste very good at all. :(

I'm hooked on this. I've eaten it every day since I found the recipe a few weeks ago. It's really good!

It's great! I didn't use the eggs and didn't have flax seed, but followed the recipe otherwise. What a wonderful dish to make when I'm not super hungry and need a smaller, tasty dish. To make it even better, add some honey on top! I also made this once with 2/3 cup milk instead of water - yum!

My kids are huge peanut butter fans so I was very happy to find this for them. I leave out the eggs but other than that follow the recipe and they love it! Great way to get some fiber and protein in them for breakfast without them realizing it.

Altho I eliminated the sugar and egg whites, it was still super delicious. This is one breakfast that's not only good, but so healthy and very filling! Thank you Meg!!

Pretty good but milk Is a definite. No water milk gives such a great flavor.

I really loved this. I'm a huge fan of protein in the morning and thought this was fantastic. I nuked mine for 5 minutes and it got a little too done for my taste so I'll try 4 minutes next time. This was really good and filling in a way that doesn't bog you down at all. Excellent!
