Oatmeal Bread

Oatmeal helps lower cholesterol, so it's good for the heart.  This is a great alternative to white bread and is easy to make.
This is my very first attempt on baking prior to my culinary studies.  The date goes back in 2007.  Recipe courtesy of

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 cup milk
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Grind oatmeal in a food processor or blender. In a large bowl, combine oatmeal, flour, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, dissolve honey in vegetable oil then stir in the milk. Combine both mixtures and stir until a soft dough is formed. Form the dough into a ball and place on a lightly oiled baking sheet.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for about 20 minutes, or until bottom of loaf sounds hollow when tapped.
But do remember that in baking, don't over mix as the bread/pastry/cakes won't rise as you expect it to be, the texture will turn out rubbery.
