*Note: Feel free to check out the recipe video + step-by-step pictures at the top of the post!
Preheat the oven to 356 °F (180 °C) and grease two small or one large baking dish.
Add the oats, baking powder, banana, dairy-free milk, vanilla extract and cinnamon to a blender and blend until smooth.
Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish and garnish with blueberries, slivered almonds, coconut sugar or other toppings as desired.
Bake the oatmeal in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes (2 small pans will be ready 5 minutes faster. Shallow pans or even smaller portions are usually done faster, too).
Remove, let cool briefly and enjoy!
Sweetness: if you like the Baked Oats sweeter, you can add 1-2 tbsp of maple syrup or other syrup or sugar of your choice.
Nut butter: for more flavor, you can optionally add another 2 tbsp of nut butter (e.g. peanut, hazelnut, cashew or almond butter).
Chocolate version: just add 1-2 tbsp of cocoa powder plus a splash more plant milk and some chocolate chips or chopped chocolate.
Lava Oats: if you like Lava Cake, you can add a piece of chocolate or a spoonful of vegan Nutella in the middle.
No blender: Alternatively, you can mix the ingredients into a batter with a spatula or spoon. The Baked Oats will then be rather coarser and not as fine as a cake, but still delicious! For this, first mash the banana with a fork, then whisk with the plant milk and finally add the remaining ingredients and stir until combined.
Microwave: You can also cook the Baked Oatmeal like a mugcake as a single serving about 3 minutes in the microwave. To avoid overboiling, it is helpful to turn off the microwave briefly in between until the Oatmeal sinks again.
