Healthy Oatmeal Bread Recipe That Tastes Like Whole Wheat

Healthy Oatmeal Bread

Though it doesn’t have any whole wheat flour in it, this recipe for my healthy oatmeal bread does have that same type of particular sweet taste common with this type of bread due to more oatmeal to the white flour, molasses along with brown sugar. If you’re searching for great breakfast bread or one to taste sensational with a nut butter for a change of pace, I hope that you print out my recipe and give this healthy oatmeal bread a try.

This healthy oatmeal bread recipe is not complicated. You basically just proof your dry yeast first. Then it will be combining the ingredients before mixing, growing, shaping, and finally baking.

Since I love to use oatmeal in my recipes to boost protein, fiber content and wonderful vitamins and minerals such as thiamine, iron and magnesium, you will find several other different varieties of oatmeal bread. Each one offers a unique taste and texture such as my recipe for oatmeal brown bread and oatmeal batter bread.

What else I like about this healthy oatmeal bread recipe is that kids and adults alike enjoy it. Knowing that your baking efforts are appreciated warms your heart as well. If you try my recipe, your family just may feel the same way to make you feel good also.

Healthy Oatmeal Bread Recipe Without Whole Wheat Flour

1 package of active dry yeast
1/4 cup of hotter than warm water once tested on your inner wrist
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 cup of canola oil
1/4 cup of molasses
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon salt
2 cups of quick cooking oats
1 cup of boiling water
1 cup of cold water
5 to 5 ½ cups sifted flour

Proof the yeast in 1/4 warm water with the one teaspoon of sugar. You’ll know it is ready when the water becomes foamy.

In a large mixing bowl, pour in the oil, molasses, brown sugar, salt, and oatmeal. Add the cup of boiling water to it and stir well to combine.

Now add the cup of cold water and stir through the mixture as well.

Add the yeast to your mixing bowl and incorporate with the other ingredients.

Slowly, mix in half of the flour at a time and enough of the remaining flour until you form soft dough.

Knead the dough on a floured surface until smooth and elastic.

Grease a mixing bowl and place the dough ball inside. You may also want to grease the top before covering and allowing to rise until doubled in bulk (about an hour and a half).

Shape into two loaves before placing in two greased loaf pans about (5½ x 9½ inches).

Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes before reducing oven temperature to 375 for 30 additional minutes.

ENJOY!
