Chocolate Chip Banana Baked Oatmeal

Hi this is Cas. I haven't posted yet because I am currently pregnant with my 3rd baby so I am not dieting. However that does not mean that I can't eat healthy.  Since I have a 3 year old and a 2 year old I am always looking for healthy recipes we can all enjoy. So far I haven't been very successful at getting them to eat oatmeal. To be honest I myself have a hard time with it too. Because I want the sticky sweet kind my Mom used to make. You know the kind...lots of butter, sugar and whole milk. Which you know kind of takes the point out of oatmeal being good for you. I mean it supposed to be in there fighting to help your cholesterol...but after you add all that other stuff I am pretty sure it just gives up. I have had the recipe for a while. Before pinterest came along I just kept a big file of recipes here on my computer. I am not sure who to give credit to but these were good. I made them with hope that it would be something I would like as well as my kids.. and I wasn't disappointed. My kids ate them and loved them.. I loved them..and then my picky husband even liked them. So this is an all around winner. The good thing is these can be made ahead and kept in the fridge or freezer..just microwave till warm.
