I found this recipe I don't know where, but it originally hails from Parent and Child magazine here, and since I found it 3 weeks ago, I have made it no less than 3 times. It is so good! My whole family loves it, which is saying a lot because my 8 year old son does not like oatmeal, but he loves this. Who wouldn't? It is like a baked oatmeal cookie for breakfast, and what's not to love about that?
Baked Banana Oatmeal
4 1/2 cups rolled oats or quick cooking or a combination
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups milk
3 Tbl butter, melted
1 Tbl baking powder
1 tes salt
2 tes vanilla
1 1/4 cups mashed ripe banana
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
1. Heat oven to 350
2. In a large bowl mix all ingredients and stir well
3. spread in a greased 9 x13 pan
4. Bake for 30 minutes or until set
I usually mix all the dry ingredients together the night before and have the wet ones ready to go in the fridge so I can quickly get it in the oven in the morning. This is just super easy to mix together and make. The leftovers are good to reheat for the next day--if there are any leftovers which sometimes there aren't in our house.
