What's up Wednesday--baked banana oatmeal

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
3 eggs
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.
