Kids said they were too dry and refused to eat them; hubbie thought the oats were too "hard"! He and I enjoyed the flavor; I did add the 1/2 cup cocoa for a chocolate touch. Might try again, but will probably cook or soak oats to soften them and double egg & milk for a moister brownie, I hope! If I do make them again, will report back. ;)

My kids and I love these on busy mornings! They get a quick, portable breakfast that is healthy. Even with chocolate chips and regular milk they beat a Pop-Tart. We like them so much that I just put all the dry ingredients into Mason jars and made them Christmas presents for the health conscience. Thank you for sharing!

I really love this recipe. I followed the recipe exactly but added chocolate chips and cooked it in an 8 x 8 pan since I didn't have an 8 x 10. Probably will cook it in a smaller pan all the time since it made the brownies thicker which was perfect. Was good for me and tasted good. My 20 month old liked it as well!

I added the extra ingredients (1/2 c cocoa, 1/2 c chocolate chips and 1/4 c oil) and it came out great. It's very hearty, moist and not overly sweet. I used whole wheat pastry flour and regular milk. As with regular brownies, it goes great with milk.

Great result....I used soy milk and splenda brown sugar as well as regular flour. I did add 1/3 cup oil and they were moist and chewy. I also added 1/3 c cocoa and melted a few chocolate chips on top.

Not bad. I used skim milk and regular flour and it worked fine. This does taste "healthy" with a nutty, somewhat grainy and bran sort of feel, so if you've got people used to white bread and sweets, not sure it will pass, but most of my coworkers liked this. A few loved it and ate several pieces. It's pretty hearty and tastes a little nutty--probably due to the flax seeds--even without any nuts. This is a really quick thing to bake up. Good thing, since I decided at the last minute to make this for work. Thanks for the recipe!

This is a solid recipe that can easily be altered to suit anyone's taste. I'll sub out the brown sugar next time, and my husband suggested adding strawberries to compliment the banana. My favorite thing about this recipe is that the result is very kid-friendly. A great and moderately healthy finger food!
