The Instructions section mentions "oats", however "oats" is not listed in the Ingredients section...How much should be used?

1/4 cup old fashioned rolled oats. This was pretty good! I used sliced almonds in place of chopped. It gave the cobbler a nice texture and a yummy crunch. I didn't think this was going to come together as well as it did. In the future, I'd use more coconut to add to the flavor; it had a tad too much blueberry flavor for my taste, even with the cinnamon and banana. No one would ever know a banana was used!

This was delicious and very easy to make. We had to double the recipe since it doesn't make much. Really is only for serving 2.

Do you slice the banana or what?

We love this recipe! We slice the banana. Also, we use fresh blueberries when they are in season...we really like it with the fresh blueberries...and raisins instead of currants. We also omit the second run through the microwave...we just do the first two minutes, then mix in the other ingredients and enjoy it. We don't like it as much if do the last minute in the loses some of the crunch.

Mine was a little dry, so I sprinkled some pomegranate juice on it and then it was perfect.

Wow! Doubled recipe, served 6. Added some frozen tart cherries with blueberries, didn't have currants. Added extra coconut as a previous poster recommended, then put in the oven while we ate dinner. It came out nicely browned and crunchy on top. Made banana/vanilla "ice cream" to serve with cobbler. Soooo good!!!

Used frozen wild blueberries from Costco and made recipe as above except also added one tablespoon ground flax seed on top. Wow, this is amazing. Will be making this again--soon!

I just made this but with peaches instead of bananas, and it was great. I think you could use any fruit that you had frozen or was in season. I served it to my mom, and she loved it - I think I might have a convert!

Yummy, crunchy, and sweet! Really liked this quick and easy dessert. I toasted the coconut and almonds instead of microwaving them. I also added more coconut and used sliced almonds. I only microwaved it for 2 mins. I also added a little ground flax seed. Fresh blueberries work for this also.

This tastes so rich and satisfying. I am a newbie and am very excited that something so delicious is actually very good for me. I didn't have a way to chop the almonds and I just sprinkled a few on the top it gave it a good crunch.

I do not see sugar under the nutritional info. My Mother is a diabetic, so this is quite important to me.

sk8lady: ask your mom if she can eat fruit or not. Some diabetics don't eat fruit and some do. Then make sure if you buy frozen blueberries that there is no sugar added; there shouldn't be, but if it comes in a container and is syrupy it could have added sugar. Of course, fresh blueberries never have added sugar. None of the other ingredients should have sugar in them, but check labels just to be sure.

Regarding chopping the almonds, you can put them in a ziplock bag, seal it and then hit them with something flat and heavy like a can until they are the size you want.

Do you follow Dr. Greger, too?  Author of "How Not to Die" and  He says the research says microwaves are fine.  I guess it boils down to who you have trust in when it comes to health and nutrition.

Be well!!

Fantastic! Good way to get grains and fruit at the same time without the calories of box cereals.

I made this for breakfast today and loved it. I followed the suggestion of @saas18 and toasted my slivered almonds and coconut and skipped the extra minute in the microwave in order to maintain the crunch. I used frozen banana, which gave the dish more moisture than I think was intended, and the banana melted into the blueberries, but the taste was very good and the texture definitely was not off putting. I think I'll make it this same way next time and use a little more oats when making it as a breakfast dish.

I made it today, but used rolled 5 grains mix and added a splash of water and baked it in our convection toaster oven at 375 Degrees in a 1 quart Corning ware dish, covered for 10 min, then uncovered for 5 min. My husband and I enjoyed it!

Made this for breakfast this morning. Really liked it! Didn't have currants so used raisins instead and substituted walnuts for almonds. Super delicious!

My husband is a SAD eater, but goes along with many of my nutritanian meals. I made this cobbler while he was walking the dogs. After 2 miutes in the microwaveI I topped it with the almonds, coconut and cinnamon and baked it for 10 minutes at 375 degrees. The tops were browned nicely. The cobbler was not only beautiful, but tasty. I also served the cobbler on a small plates with orange slices sprinkled with hemp seeds beside the cobbler. Definitely 5 stars in this house!

I would think you could by cooking the rolled oats and using fresh berries. I'm not a fan of microwaving anymore.

I bake mine for about 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees, without the bananas, then add them after removing from the oven. It's just as good, and better for you.

Just made this after a weekend of Blueberry picking, I used frozen peach slices which I cut up and used Bob's extra thick oats. Cooked it for the 2 minutes in the microwave and then just added the topping before serving. It was very good. I think I'll try the above recommendation of browning it in the oven next time.

I eat this almost every day for breakfast, using the posted ingredients except for omitting the vanilla and adding a tablespoon of ground flaxseed, and I count the almonds and leave them whole. Very quick to make!  I put together 6 single servings at a time in individual bowls and put them in the freezer.  Out of the freezer, two minutes in the microwave, and stir. Yum!

Great flavors and texture. Used fresh blueberries, sliced almonds, added 1 Tablespoon ground flaxseed in topping, plus an extra sprinkling of cinnamon. Based on other reviews, I baked at 375 degrees for 20 minutes covered until I could hear the sizzling of the blueberry juices when I checked on it, then 5 minutes uncovered. (My oven runs slightly cool, so check at 15 minutes.) Let set for about 5 minutes to cool slightly. Four stars from the SAD hubby, too!

Update: This has become one of my favorite breakfast dishes. I've found it does better if the bananas aren't too ripe and still hold their shape. I've used chia seeds (whole and ground) when I haven't had flaxseed. I've also made it with no additions. I think I like the flaxseed the best. I've also used raisins in place of the currants when I was out of them. I prefer it baked but microwaving will do when you're in a hurry.

Any suggestions for what to use instead of oats?  I'm sensitive to oats, corn, barley, rye.  No life-threatening reaction but I get SO tired and weak and drowsy and grumpy---no fun!
