  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs

  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted plus more for greasing the dish

  3. In another bowl, break up the eggs with a whisk; then whisk in the milk, maple syrup, and vanilla until well combined.

  4. Add the milk mixture to the oat mixture, along with the melted butter. Stir well to combine.
