Today I set out to re-stalk my freezer with a few of my staple loaves of bread and decided that I needed a new one to add to the bunch. My baking basket had a small bag of oats left over in it so….Oat Bread! I used a mishmash of gluten free flours, no starches and a yeast free formula that rises – the result: a delicious, nutritious even sandwich worthy bread that I think I’ll call my new favourite!
The fun part of this one is the flours are totally interchangeable so don’t be afraid to experiment. It’s also worth a mention that you can easily make your own flours with a food processor. I made the millet and oat flours for this loaf today. You can also try adding 1/2 cup of sunflower or pumpkin seeds!
