Breakfast For a Champion... AKA.. Me!

Raise your hand if you are either A) a lazy bum and hate making breakfast in the morning. Or B) a freaking superstar and don't have time for breakfast. Yeah I just raised my hand twice. If you didn't... Then... GET OUT! But if you did... I'm gonna change your pretty little lives with my little friend... The Oatmeal Casserole.

{Nom. nom. nom.}
Baked oatmeal casserole
Total Time: 50 minutes
Serves: 6

2 cups rolled oats
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup walnut pieces {I used Almonds!}
1 cup raspberries {any berries work!}

1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
2 cups milk
1 large egg
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 ripe banana, peeled, 1/2-inch
{for all you non-glutaniers This recipe can EASILY be made gluten-free! Just use gluten-free oats!}
Preheat oven to 375°F and spray the inside of a 10-1/2 by 7 inch baking dish with cooking spray. In a large bowl, mix together the oats, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, half the walnuts, half the strawberries and half the chocolate. {Save the other half of strawberries, walnuts and chocolate for the top of the oatmeal}
{In another large bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, butter and vanilla extract.}
Add the oat mixture first.
Arrange the remaining strawberries, walnuts and chocolate on top. add the bananas to the top, thennn...

smoother all that junk with the milk mixture!

Shake the pan up so that everything blends well
{It's blurry because I was shaking it...? just kidding! It's blurry because I suck.}
Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until the top is nice and golden, and the milk mixture has set. {for extra goodness, sprinkle some brown sugar on top!}
Now I have breakfast for days!
{one Point for the busy college student!}
Baby girl always thinks she plays such a big role in my creations...
So that’s that! It’s pretty healthy too! it was also a big hit with my roommates! Which is always my favorite!
