Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal

I have been wanting to try Baked Oatmeal and although I had never had it before I was almost craving it(could that really happen?). So I went to Pinterest and found a few I knew I had to try like Banana Nut Baked Oatmeal and Basic Baked Oatmeal but I had all the ingredients for this Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal. 
I knew as soon as I saw that I had all the ingredients I had to make it and let me tell you something I will be making it again, heck my kids are already asking when I am going to make the "Oatmeal Breakfast Cookie Thing" again.
I followed her recipe exactly, the only thing I may change next time is to cook it in a smaller pan, in the 9X13 it came out really thin (maybe that is how it is suppose to be, remember I have never had baked oatmeal before) and it kind of crumbled, I think if it was a little bit thicker more like a bar it would be a great on the go breakfast.

Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal (Baked Peanut Butter Oatmeal)
1-1/2 Quick Cooking Oats
1/4 cup Packed Brown Sugar
1/4 cup White Sugar
3/4 cup Milk
1/4 cup Melted Butter
1 Egg
1 tsp Baking Powder
3/4 tsp Salt
1 tsp Vanilla
1/2 cup Creamy Peanut Butter

Preheat oven to 350° and grease a 9×13 pan. Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl and stir well. Spread in to pan and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until edges are golden brown.

I had some leftover Chocolate Chips from something else I had made so I mixed those in as well, you could mix in just about anything you wanted to I am sure. Here is a picture of the pan about 10 minutes after I took it out of the oven!
