It's time for another casserole! I love to cook once and feed a crowd or myself a whole bunch of times. This one is time consuming but worth it. To make it quicker to prepare, I suggest you enlist some help!

Peanut butter, chocolate, banana, and berry? YUM! I  added raspberries for more fruit (and fibre) but any berry would be [...]
