Perfect poppy seed and lemon oatmeal

Perfect poppy seed and lemon oatmeal

This perfect poppy seed and lemon oatmeal, which has the wonderful flavors of poppy seeds and lemon, is perfect made either from oats, buckwheat flakes, millet, couscous, corn grits, or bulgur. The porridge is rich in vitamins, minerals, fiber, and protein. I definitely recommend trying it out to all poppy-holics! ;)

In addition to being gluten-free (depending on whether you decide to use buckwheat/gluten-free oat flakes, corn grits) and not containing eggs, you can also prepare it with plant-based milk (for example, coconut, almond, or oat), making it suitable for people with intolerance to lactose. Sweeten it with date syrup instead of honey and you have a vegan version on the table. The possibilities for preparing this fantastic and healthy porridge are truly endless and each one tastes great.

Lemon juice and peel go well with poppy seeds and give oatmeal a wonderful, refreshing taste - so be sure not to skip the lemon. It tastes the best while it is still warm. You can serve it sprinkled with various dried fruits, lemon peel, crushed nuts, coconut, or cocoa beans. It is great for breakfast, it will perfectly start you into a new day. However, you can enjoy it at any time, it is ready in no time.

1 cup = 250 ml


  • 1/2 cup of oats (I recommend these)
  • 1 cup of milk (plan-based, nut, or cow's), you can also use water
  • 3 tbsp of ground poppy seeds
  • 2 tbsp of date syrup (or honey) (I recommend this one)
  • 1 tsp of lemon juice
  • 1 tsp of lemon peel
  • 30g of raisins


  1. In a small pot, combine the oats with milk, ground poppy seeds, raisins, and cook them together on a low flame until the porridge thickens. If necessary, add more milk.
  2. In the end, mix the date syrup, lemon juice, and peel into the porridge and serve the porridge warm.
