Baked Banana Oatmeal

I have adjusted this recipe successfully many times without a decrease in flavor/enjoyment. The newest  version is listed here. 

I found this recipe on Pinterest (original post here) and we thoroughly enjoyed it! The first time I made it I was out of eggs so I substituted with flax seed - it was perfect! Now I am adding a little more flax seed each time to boost the nutrition. If you do not have flax seed just use two eggs instead.

3 cups quick cooking oats
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup milk (overflowing a bit)
2 Tablespoons butter, melted
1/3 cup flax seed

2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 bananas, mashed
1/3 cup chocolate chips (mini is best)

Mix all ingredients together and stir well.
Spread in a greased 9x13 pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.

If I have labeled a recipe as GlutenFree or Dairy Free but it appears to have those ingredients in it... that means the recipe is still delicious with substitutes/replacements. Ex: soy milk, lactose-free cheese, Bragg's liquid aminos (for soy sauce), all-purpose gluten free flour (Better Batter is my favorite), etc. Please check your individual ingredients to be sure they are GF or DF, if that is what you need.
