    Simple recipe. Came together quickly. Nevertheless, even if it took a long time, it would be worth the wait. Explosion of flavors with every bite.

    Not sure I had enough banana - turned out tough and dry. Not bad flavor, though.

    Super easy, quick, and tasty. I used frozen wild blueberries. They didn't last long; everyone went back for seconds!

    Turned out great, used a jarred blueberry jam to add some sweetness. Also dashed in some cinnamon and brown sugar to the dry ingredients to boost the flavor. Will try baking a little longer to cut down some of the chewy texture. Definitely will make again

    Easy recipe and only a few ingredients! I didn’t have chia seeds but switched it out for ground flax and it worked out great.

    Really good. I used frozen mixed berries and quick oats which gave a less crumbly texture.

    Soo good. It makes a small amount, so I’ll likely double the oat mixture next time. (:

    Weirdly chewy and bland... not sure what went wrong. Used honey instead of maple syrup. Might be the problem. Still good.

    It went out a little loose, but it might be because of bananas. Overall it is tasty but too sweet.

    I added 3 table spoons of almond flour to thicken the dough more, and broiled for the last 5 minutes of cooking to create a crispier crust. They turned out perfect! But the recipe seemed to make quite a bit less than 12 servings

    Very good - i ended up wanting a bit more of the oat mixture for covering but not a huge problem. Teen boys finished the pan in 1 day.

    Texture was very chewy - not my favorite will not be making again

    turned out great! used a loaf pan and it was enough to cover top. love the banana taste that comes through. didn't make the blueberry jam as we had homemade cherry jam from my mother in law. baked alot longer than the recipe suggested, until it turned brown and crispy both on top and at the bottom. that's what made the texture good!

    imo there should be more batter to spread on the top layer, made twice and never have enough for the whole surface. Amazing healthy snack, and tastes just as good without maple syrup!!

    It turned out well- It needed more sweetness

    it was good, but needed a little more sweetness.

    Okay! Tastes very "healthy" like Life cereal. Maybe I will make again.

    Really convenient, easy recipe. Next time i make these i would definitely use 3 bananas and 3 cups of oats, as a the suggested size proved too little to coat the top evenly. Otherwise perfect

    It was pretty tasty. I always modify. sorry if it was more oh natural before...but I like it sweeter so I added a mixture of oats/flour/butter/brownsugar to the top more like my Mom's crumb cake and I feel it needed the sweet. FYI its very cumbersome having to scroll through an entire long article just to get to the recipe...but I liked this dessert so do recommend it. The bananas were a yummy added twist to similar recipes Ive seen in the past.

    Ended up needing more of the dough part to cover the whole top but it turned out really well either way
