I haven't tried this yet. I don't like oatmeal (except in cookies), but this looks good. Let us know how it is if you make it before I do!
Cinnamon-Bun Baked Oatmeal
1/2 cup oats (50g) 1/4 tsp vanilla extract 1/2 tsp cinnamon sweetener, such as 1 1/2 tbsp maple syrup or 1 to 1 1/2 packs stevia (I omitted, but I’ve cautioned y’all before about my lack of sweet tooth.) 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce (60g) (You can sub pumpkin or mashed banana) 1/4 cup milk of choice, creamer, juice, or water heaping 1/16th tsp salt Optional, for a more-buttery flavor: 1 tbsp oil or nut butter (if oil, scale the other liquid back) Optional: handful of raisins, chopped walnuts, brown sugar for the top
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine raw oats, spices, applesauce, and liquid. Pour into a small baking pan, loaf pan, or 1-cup ramekin (or, for mini boats, two 1/2-cup ramekins). Cook for 15-20 minutes, or more until it’s firm. Finally, set your oven to “high broil” for 3 more minutes (or simply just bake longer, but broiling gives it a nice crust). Don’t forget to spray your ramekins first, if you want your cakes to pop out.

Ideas: top with your favorite nut butter, pumpkin butter, banana butter, or even coconut banana butter! Or try the “cinnamon-bun frosting” at the link.
