Baked Oatmeal Casserole

Serves: 8

Ingredients

  • 2 Cups All Natural Oats
  • ⅓ Cup Brown Sugar (I used the Splenda blend)
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • ½ Cup Chocolate Chips
  • 1 Cup Strawberries
  • ⅔ Cup Blueberries
  • 1 Ripe Banana
  • 2 Cups Milk
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 2 Tbsp Butter (cooled)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Spray a 10 by 10 casserole dish generously with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, mix oats, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, half the chocolate chips and half the berries. Stir well and pour into casserole dish. Add the other half of the berries & chocolate chips to the top of the mixture. Then slice the banana and add to the top.

In a separate bowl, combine milk, egg, butter, & vanilla. Whisk thoroughly. Pour on top of oatmeal mixture, making sure the all oats are soaked evenly.

Bake for 30 minutes. Then, remove casserole & add a tablespoon of brown sugar to the top of the casserole for added sweetness (optional.) Bake for an additional 5 or 10 minutes or until the top of the casserole is golden brown
