Preheat oven to 350°F with rack in middle. Lightly oil 9-inch square glass baking dish. Measure oats, raisins, baking powder and 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon into prepared pan and stir well. Then, stir applesauce, yogurt, milk, oil, eggs and vanilla together in small bowl until smooth; stir into oat mixture. In small bowl, combine brown sugar with remaining 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and sprinkle over oatmeal.
