I like oatmeal okay. I mean, is plain old oatmeal anyone’s favorite food? It IS healthy, though, and if you hand me a bowl cooled with milk and sweetened with brown sugar, I’m certainly not going to refuse it.
I kind of hate cooking oatmeal though. It either sticks like heck to the bottom of the pan or explodes all over the microwave (or is that just me?). So I LOVE baked oatmeals. I’ve made Lynn’s Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal several times and always enjoy it. Much easier clean-up than regular oatmeal, with the added plus that it’s way easier to get my kids to eat baked oatmeal – it looks like a cookie when you cut it! Yum!
This version used up a ripe banana on the counter. It seems that I always have them laying around; see: Graham Cracker Banana Bread, Banana Bread Muffins, Banana-Orange Bread, Banana Couscous, Banana Chocolate Snack Cake …
I didn’t have much milk, so I also substituted out most of it for vanilla yogurt. I liked the little tang this added! But you can just use milk if you want.
