- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1/2 cup pecan pieces (optional)
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon allspice
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 apple, cut into small cubes (or 1 cup blueberries, raspberries, raisins, or dried cranberries)

- 1/3 cup pure maple syrup, plus 1 tablespoon for drizzling
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon salted butter (coconut oil, for vegan)

- Butter an 8 x 8″ or 9 x 9″ pan. In a medium bowl, mix together the rolled oats, pecan pieces, baking powder, cinnamon, allspice, and kosher salt.
- Dump the dries into the prepared pan. Add the diced apple in a layer on top.
- In the same bowl, whisk the egg, then add the milk, maple syrup, and vanilla. Slowly drizzle the milk mixture over the oats. Shake the pan to make sure it gets evenly incorporated.
- Bake 40 to 45 minutes until the top is nicely golden and the oat mixture has set. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for about 10 minutes.
