Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray or butter an 8" square baking dish. Set aside.
In large bowl, combine oats, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Mix well.
Melt butter in microwave safe dish. Add to oat mixture; stir to combine.
In a separate bowl, mix together the milk, mashed banana, egg, and vanilla extract. Add to the flour mixture, and stir well, to fully mix ingredients. Stir in 1/2 cup chopped pecans.
Pour batter into prepared baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Test it to make sure it is done in the center. When baked oatmeal is done, remove pan to a wire rack, and let cool. Sprinkle toasted pecans on top, if desired. Serve warm, or let cool completely to room temperature before serving.
Optional- during the last 5 minutes of baking time, place the 3 Tablespoons of chopped pecans on a baking sheet and place into hot oven (do this if you want to garnish oatmeal with toasted pecans).
