Ever since I started recipe testing Lemon Poppyseed Muffins in my kitchen, I’ve been hooked on citrus and everything lemon poppyseed. Now that we’re in prime oatmeal season, I knew that oatmeal was the next thing I needed to lemon poppyseed-ify but for some odd reason, I haven’t been craving oats unless we’re talking baked oats, so I thought why not do it all at once? And here we are. Baked Lemon Poppyseed Oatmeal!

Baking your oats gives it a really nice golden brown topping and more of a cakey texture, plus it’s just fun to scoop things out of a mug sometimes right? Or is it just me… Anyways, this is a one bowl, or should I say mug, recipe and is super simple to make! As always, sweetness and lemony-ness is customizable so go hard on the maple or the lemon as you see fit. The beauty of vegan meals is you can always taste them before cooking because there aren’t many ingredients that aren’t safe raw.
