Baked Banana Oatmeal - almost Too Sinful to be called Breakfast!

Baked Banana Oatmeal - I spied this recipe at Kath Eats Real Food.  Confession time - I LOVE oatmeal for breakfast.  Period.  I used to eat Instant Oatmeal and was happy.  But I didn't know any better, I had not experienced the wonderful goodness of Old-Fashioned Oatmeal.  Oh My - I just savor the creamy goodness!  I LOVE bananas as well.  So the combination of Oatmeal and Bananas - had to be a winner!  And it was!  The smell alone was delicious!
Note - I used Steel Cut oats only because I had them, needing to be used.  Had bought them to try out, just wasn't Wow'd.  I really like my Old Fashioned Oats so much!  BUT with that being said, this recipe made the Steel Cut Oats SO YUMMY!

Banana Baked Oatmeal
2 Bananas sliced
2 cups Old Fashioned Oats (I use Steel Cut in the pics)
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
2 Bananas - mashed
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup brown sugar, plus 1 TBSP
1 1/2 cup skim milk

1 - Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Place parchment paper inside 8X8 baking dish.
2 - Place sliced bananas over bottom of parchment paper.
3 - Mix together oatmeal, brown sugar (less 1 TBSP), salt, and baking powder.  Set aside.
4 - Beat egg.  Add mashed bananas, milk and vanilla.
5 - Add dry ingredients to wet mixture.
6 - Pour over banana slices. 

7- Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes.  After 30 minutes, sprinkle extra brown sugar over oatmeal.  Bake another 12 minutes.
8 - Remove from baking dish and allow to cool for 5 - 10 minutes.
Serve alone or with milk poured over.
