I’m a huge fan of oatmeal, so any oatmeal recipe will quickly peak my curiosity. I’ve had this recipe for Baked Banana Oatmeal kickin’ around the kitchen for a while now, just waiting for me to make it. I tore it out of the Parent & Child magazine and had a hunch it would be perfect for my family. And, it was! …especially with the addition of chocolate chips. It made plenty, was delish, and it’s always nice when I can serve everyone at once. I was afraid it wouldn’t be enough, so I doubled the recipe. But, it made tons! I had an entire 9×13 pan filled and 6 ramekins. So, we’ve been eating this for a couple days now.
