Vegan Oatmeal Sandwich Rolls

I kind of have a bread addiction (in addition to my coffee addiction), so therefore I like to bake bread. These Vegan Oatmeal Sandwich Rolls are based on my Vegan Oatmeal Sandwich Bread – I have just turned them into rolls. When you bake them, the oven temperature will be higher and the baking time will be shorter.

I love using in oatmeal in my breads, because it adds texture, fiber, and moisture.

What you need (for about 12 rolls):

  • 2 Cups of Warm Water
  • 1/3 Cup Vegetable Oil (I used Canola Oil)
  • 2 Tbsp (2 packages) Dry Yeast (I used Instant/Bread Machine Yeast)
  • 4 Tbsp Sugar ( helps the bread rise)
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Cup of Oats (Rolled)
  • 4 1/2 Cup Flour (Start with 4 1/2 Cups and if dough is too sticky add a little more as needed)

What to do:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Add warm Water, Yeast, Sugar and Oil to a large bowl. Mix well and let rest for 10-15 minutes, until foamy.
  3. Add Salt.
  4. Add the Oats
  5. Stir your Flour with a fork or whisk (to loosen it up), then measure the flour. Add one cup at a time, mixing dough well. After adding the 4 1/2 cups of Flour your dough should still be very sticky, but not sticking to the bowl. At this point I kneaded the dough by hand for a few minutes and added a touch more flour.
  6. Grease or line a cookie sheet.
  7. Shape dough in to a round loaf/cylinder and cut in to 12 pieces (I cut the dough in half, and then in half etc.). With floured hands, roll each piece in to a ball, tucking the creases of dough on the bottom of the roll. Dip the roll in some flour and place on to cookie sheet. At this point, I patted down the rolls lightly, since the rolls will rise again.image
  8. Cover with clean kitchen towel and let rise for about 25 minutes.
  9. Bake at 375 degrees for about 12-15 minutes, until they are a nice golden brown.
  10. Let cool on wire rack.

I love how these rolls turned out! I hope you do too.

Keep in mind that there are no preservatives in this bread, so therefore these rolls will taste best if consumed within 3 days. If you are a small household – just throw half the batch in the freezer!

Very recently I came up with my Rye Bread Recipe (requiring no machines), and of course immediately thought: I need to bake sandwich rolls! The only difference is, you shape dough in to balls/rolls and bake at a slightly higher temperature for a shorter time. These Rye Sandwich Rolls are golden on the outside and soft and delicious on the inside. Try them out!!

Easy Homemade Tortillas – No Lard

Pin on PinterestShare on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Email this to someoneShare on Tumblr

I have bought many tortillas over the years, most less than wonderful. There are these “homemade” tortillas at Trader Joe’s that look pretty authentic, and that is fine to buy those. But you know, with just a few ingredients (flour, oil, salt & water) you can make homemade tortillas within 30 minutes.

  • 2 Cups of Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon of Salt
  • 1/3 Cup Olive Oil (or any vegetable oil)
  • 3/4 Cup of Water

What to do:

  1. In medium bowl – mix flour and salt. Then add oil and water. Stir, mix, and knead until you have a smooth ball of dough
  2. Divide dough into about 10 sections – then shape into golf size balls. IMG_0612
  3. Put dough balls back in bowl and then cover with damp paper towel
  4. Place non-stick skillet or cast iron skillet over medium heat
  5. Roll out one ball at a time, using a rolling pin (or cup or glass), on a floured surface, as thin as you can into a roundish shape
  6. Cook tortilla a couple of minutes on each side, until blistery (when one is cooking start rolling out your next tortilla).IMG_0614
  7. Wrap tortillas in a clean kitchen towel to keep warm and soft (or in a tortilla warmer if you have one)

Healthier Banana Bread – With Oats and Almond Milk

Pin on PinterestShare on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Email this to someoneShare on Tumblr

I love banana bread, and of course it’s THE perfect way to use up overly ripe bananas. You would think that banana bread should be pretty healthy, but not necessarily. Some recipes call for 1 cup of sugar for one loaf or cake. Yikes! The bananas are already sweet. In this recipe experiment I chose to use half the sugar, I added some apple sauce and almond milk for moisture, and I also added some oats for texture and fiber. I thought the result was pretty tasty, but you can give this it a try and decide for yourself.

Healthier Banana Bread – With Oats and Almond Milk

What you need (for 1 Cake):

  • 1 Cup of Flour
  • 1/2 Cup of Oats
  • 1/2 Cup of Sugar (I used brown, but white would be fine too)
  • 1/2 Cup or 1 Stick of Softened Butter (pop in microwave for about 15 seconds)
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Cinnamon (optional)
  • 1 Egg – Whisked
  • 1/2 Cup Vanilla Almond Milk
  • 1/2 Cup Apple Sauce
  • 3 Ripe and Mashed Bananas

  7. Pour batter in to baking pan and bake for 25-30 minutes at 350 F

Old-Fashioned Biscuits with Almond Milk

Pin on PinterestShare on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Email this to someoneShare on Tumblr

Last night I was making some vegetable soup and I thought to myself “some fresh baked bread or biscuits would really go nicely with the soup”. So, I decided to whip up some biscuits. I followed the super simple recipe for Old-Fashioned Biscuits on the back of my flour bag. I used regular organic all-purpose flour and regular butter, but exchanged the cow’s milk with Almond Milk. In my short experience using Almond Milk it seems to always make my baked goods moister and just tastier. Also, my body does not love a bunch of regular milk anymore – so all in all, using Almond Milk is a win-win. (Not if you have nut allergies obviously).

  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar (optional)
  • 1Teaspoon Salt (or less depending on taste)
  • 6 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 Cup of Almond Milk (I used Toasted Coconut Almond Milk, but you use Plain or Vanilla)

  4. Add milk slowly (stop when dough is sticky and combined).
  5. Add some flour and knead dough until nice and soft and “fluffy”
  6. With your hands form 6 big balls and place on floured or greased baking sheetFullSizeRender (17)

  6. Spoon (I used a regular table spoon) a heaping tablespoon of dough mixture/batter onto the baking/cookie sheet – starting in a corner. I used a 9×13 inch baking sheet and was able to fit 3 biscuits in a row, for a total of ten.

Greek Yogurt Vanilla Scones

Pin on PinterestShare on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Email this to someoneShare on Tumblr

The wind is howling (not really, but in California we like to pretend that we have real weather) and it feels like I should be baking something comforting. Comforting but not too horribly bad for you. Like scones or biscuits (what is the difference between scones or biscuits??) – served with tea and jam. I wish I was British. I thought I would try to make some Greek Yogurt Vanilla Scones (honestly I was too tired to add fruit, but you could add blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, peach, pear etc. etc.). These are just sort of plain – just vanilla extract for some extra flavor, but of course if you are not a vanilla fan, you could just omit it : )

Greek Yogurt Vanilla Scones

What you need:

  • 3 cups of Flour (I’m using Organic All Purpose Flour)
  • 2 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 3 tbsp. Sugar
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 cup Greek Yogurt (I used Organic 2 %)
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 stick or 8 tbsp. Butter (preferably Unsalted)
  • 1 splash of Milk (or cream) to brush tops of scones

What to do:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F
  2. In medium/large bowl – mix all dry ingredients together (flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, sugar)
  3. Add butter – crumble finely with your fingers in the flour mixture
  4. In a small separate bowl whisk egg, vanilla, and yogurt together
  5. Add wet ingredients (i.e. egg and yogurt mixture) to the dry ingredients
  6. Stir and then need until dough is combined (it will be a tiny bit flake)
  7. Place dough on lined cookie sheet – press or roll out to a circle or square (about an inch thick). Brush top with some milk or cream (optional). Cut into desired shapes (squares, triangles, rounds – using a glass or cup). Separate scones about 1-2 inches apart.Unbaked Scones
  8. Bake until golden brown (just a tiny bit golden) for about 12-15 minutes.

Serve these moist and flaky delicious scones (or biscuits if you prefer) with some jam and tea : ) They are also delicious to eat as is (preferably straight out of the oven). Yum!

I wanted to eat the whole batch, but stopped myself after two…Until tonight.

Hope you enjoy these! I would think any plain yogurt would work fine. Greek yogurt just tends to be thicker and creamier (that’s a good thing).

I was inspired by this recipe http://www.twopeasandtheirpod.com/greek-yogurt-biscuits/, but I used less butter, more yogurt. And added vanilla. And didn’t use water. I’m sure the original recipe is great, but I mostly look at recipes to get a concept idea, then I add my own ideas/twists.

Happy Windy Monday!

Annika
