Note From Mr Breakfast::
I recently tried this recipe (May 15, 2013) and thought the flavor combination of bananas and chocolate was dynamite. Thanks to 'caroline' for the submission! The only thing I changed was to use less than brown sugar. I found that 1 or 2 Tablespoon of brown sugar is all you need. Any more and the oatmeal is too sweet. My advice is to mix everything together as stated... except for the sugar. Then at the end, add brown sugar a Tablespoon at a time until it has the perfect sweetness for you.
