Baked Banana Split Oatmeal

Banana Split Baked Oatmeal at The Happy Housewife
The following is a post from Andrea Green.

Don’t let the decadent name fool you. Baked Banana Split Oatmeal really is a healthy choice! This recipe is made with both whole grain oats and fresh fruit, but the addition of a bit of dark chocolate on the top means your family will soon add this recipe to their favorites list!

I add greek yogurt to the top of mine because I like the tangy taste to offset the sweet. Plus, it adds a little extra protein to the meal. However, I suppose if you were going for “Mom of the Year” you could use a bit of real whipped cream. Just don’t forget to put a cherry on top.
