Peanut Butter, Banana, Chocolate Chip Baked Oatmeal

 Wait a minute, is this breakfast or dessert? Well, my answer to that, is take your pick. This is definitely a recipe that will make the kids clamor for oatmeal for breakfast.  It will also be a dessert or a snack that  Mom will love to serve as a wholesome treat for the kids; I baked these up as a snack for a friend and her kids the other day when we had a get together at my house, and they were a big hit. You can make this recipe up in one big 8x8 pan, and cut it in to squares, or scoop it up with a serving spoon, or you can make it like I made this batch, in muffin tins, for individual hand held servings. Either way, they are delicious, comforting,  wholesome. and  wonderful for a make ahead or on the go breakfast.
