    I've used vanilla almond milk and whole milk instead, but everything else was the same. Even my picky kids love this breakfast! They like to warm it for a few seconds in the microwave. They need the extra calories in the AM and this does the trick and keeps them full! Thanks for sharing!  -  17 Jan 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a great breakfast (with slight modifications)! First time I followed the recipe exactly, and it tasted great but I thought maple syrup and cocoa were unnecessary if using sweetened chocolate milk. Now I also make it without vanilla extract, and cannot tell a difference. Adding just under 1 cup of milk makes it less soggy, which I prefer. So now my ideal recipe is just oats, chia seeds, unsweetened coconut shreds, and chocolate milk. I pre-pack several snack zip locks of the dry ingredients, and take them with me on every vacation.  -  05 Aug 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    YUMMY! I really liked this. Who wouldn't like chocolate included in their breakfast? I did use vanilla soy milk and it was plenty chocolate enough. Also only had unsweetened coconut and it was plenty sweet. YUMMY!  -  29 Sep 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
