Oatmeal casserole

Questionable on the healthy breakfast front, but it's a step in the right direction.

Oatmeal Casserole (with alterations)
Prep time: 10 minutes
Baking time: 35-40 minutes
Serves: 8-10
Original recipe:

• 2 cups rolled oats
• 1/4 cup brown sugar
• 1 tsp baking powder
• 1 tsp cinnamon
• 1/2 tsp salt
• 1 cup walnut or pecan pieces
• 1 cup raspberries {any berries work}
• 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
• 2 cups milk
• 1 large Egg
• 3 Tbsp Butter (melted), plus extra for preparing the pan
• 1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract
• 1 Ripe Banana (sliced)

Preheat oven to 375°F and butter the inside of a 8x11 or so inch baking dish.

Mix together the oats, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, half the nuts, half the berries, and half the chocolate. Add mixture to prepared baking dish. Arrange the remaining nuts, berries, and chocolate, plus the banana slices on top.

Whisk together milk, egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Pour over mixture in baking dish. Gently shake the baking dish to help the milk mixture go throughout the oats.

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until the top is nicely golden brown and the milk mixture has set.

Serve right away or store in fridge and serve cold or reheated.
