Mixed Fruit Baked Oatmeal

This past weekend my husband and I got together with a few friends and went bowling.  I used to bowl when I was a kid, and I actually won a few trophies over the years.  Since I hadn’t bowled in awhile I wasn’t sure how rusty I would be.  Well, I don’t know if luck was on my side or if I remembered some of my old tricks, but I won both games!   I almost forgot how fun the game could be.

When we got back from bowling I wanted to make something I could just throw in the oven in the morning.  I decided on something more nutritious and filling than my weekly Saturday morning Cinnamon Buns.   I’ve been craving oatmeal lately and found this great recipe that I could choose fruit my whole family would like.

After cooking this oatmeal I let it sit a bit so that it wouldn’t be too hot for the kiddies.  I also added some cream and a drizzle of maple syrup on top.  I was really happy with the outcome and the little sprinkle of chocolate chips added the perfect sweetness without taking away the flavors of the fruit.  It’s a great dish to make when company comes over.  Make it ahead and pop it in the oven in the morning!
