Baked Oatmeal Casserole

I'm a fan of oatmeal.  This was a tasty treat I tried out and really loved.  It was just the right mix of sweet and savory.  'Tis the season for fruits!  I actually halved the recipe, but the full recipe would easily serve 8.
Baked Oatmeal Casserole
Ingredients:  2 c. oats, 1/3 c brown sugar, 1 t baking powder, 1  cinnamon, 1/2 t salt, 1/2 c chocolate chips (I doubled this amount b/c I love chocolate), 1 c. strawberries (sliced), 2/3 c blueberries, 1 rip banana (sliced), 1 egg, 2 T butter, 1 t vanilla
Instructions:  Spray 8x10 casserole with cooking spray.
Mix the oats, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and half of the chocolate chips, and half of the berries.  Stire and pour into dish.
Add the other half of the chips and berries to the top.  Top with bananas.
In another bowl mix the milk, eggs, melted (and cooled) butter, and vanilla.  Whisk and pour over the top of the oatmeal mix (make sure to cover all of the oats).
Bake for 30 min at 375.  Add 1 T of brown sugar to the top of your dish and bake another 5-10 minutes until the top is browned.
*I found the original recipe at Love of Family & Home.
