Ingredients

Wet Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 ½ cups milk of choice
  • cup maple syrup
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil or melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Dry Ingredients

  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup blueberries, plus more for topping

Lemon Yogurt Glaze

  • ¼ cup unsweetened plain yogurt dairy-free or regular
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon poppy seeds (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F and grease your 8x8 pan.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, maple syrup, lemon zest, lemon juice, coconut oil or butter, and vanilla extract.
  • Stir the rolled oats, poppy seeds, baking powder, and pinch of salt into the wet ingredients. And then fold in the blueberries.
  • Pour the batter into the greased baking dish and bake the oatmeal for 35-40 minutes or until the tip of a knife comes out clean and it's lightly golden around the edges.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the yogurt, lemon zest, lemon juice, and maple syrup.
  • Let the oatmeal cool down for a few minutes, drizzle with the glaze and add a sprinkle of poppyseeds and more blueberries if desired. Can be eaten warm or cold.

Notes

No poppy seeds? – you can either add in some chia seeds for a similar texture or just omit them completely.
Make it egg-free - replace with flax eggs (the ratio per egg is 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed mixed with 3 tablespoons water). Let the flax eggs gel up for a few minutes to thicken before adding them to the batter.
No maple syrup? - use honey instead, but reduce the amount to ¼ cup for the oatmeal and ½ tablespoon for the glaze since it's sweeter than maple syrup.
Variations - use another kind of berry such as blackberry or raspberry or a berry mixture. Stone fruits would also work really well here such as peaches, nectarines, or plums.
