Beautiful lemon blueberry baked oatmeal made with fresh lemon juice & zest and naturally sweetened with pure maple syrup. This lemon baked oatmeal is gluten free & dairy free with bursts of fresh blueberries and poppy seeds in every bite. Drizzle with a homemade lemon yogurt topping for the perfect breakfast treat!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x9 inch pan or 11x7 with oil or nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, pure maple syrup, lemon zest, lemon juice, melted butter, almond milk and both vanilla and almond extracts until well combined.
Pour mixture into prepared pan and smooth top. Bake for 35-45 minutes or until the edges are slightly golden brown and center is set. Remove from the oven, allow to cool for 10 minutes, while you make the lemon yogurt topping.
To make the lemon yogurt drizzle: in a small bowl, mix together the greek yogurt, powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon lemon juice and zest; mix to combine. Add more lemon juice if necessary to thin it out so you can drizzle it over the top of the oatmeal. Drizzle over the top of the oatmeal, cut into 6 slices and serve!
Lower sugar version: If you want to make this oatmeal slightly less sweet, feel free to use 1/4 cup maple syrup (instead of 1/3 cup) and skip the lemon yogurt drizzle.
