Oatmeal Bread

I was planning to post a St. Patty’s Day recipe (green falafel!) but it didn’t turn out very well, so I decided to go with something I haven’t made in a while: bread. I’m heading down to Missouri to visit a good friend of mine next week (so excited!!) and will probably bring a loaf of this with me to snack on along the way.

Note: This bread is pretty sweet (especially the crust) so keep that in mind before you start the recipe.

Oatmeal Bread

Ingredients

  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup oatmeal flour (I ground 1 cup oatmeal up in my coffee grinder)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • egg replacer, equal to one egg (I used flax eggs)
  • 2 cups soy milk
  • 1 tsp vinegar

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375° F.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, baking powder, baking soda, and sugar. In another smaller bowl mix together the egg replacer, soy milk, and vinegar. Add the wet ingredients to the flour mixture, being careful not to overmix.
  3. My dough was quite sticky at this point. You may have to put some oil on your hands to prevent the dough from sticking to them as you transfer it to a greased loaf pan. You can sprinkle some oats on top if you’d like. Bake for 40-45 minutes. Test for doneness by inserting a knife into the middle of the loaf. If it comes out clean you’re good to go. If the edges are done but the middle is not, line the edges with tin foil and continue to bake until the knife comes out clean.
  4. When the loaf is done, remove from the oven and let cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Eat while warm or move to a cooling rack to cool completely.
