If you know me, you will often here me say how much I miss the bread in Sweden. My favorite varieties have oats in them – which makes the bread more moist (and healthy…). So, instead of complaining I’m trying to come up with recipes for some Oatmeal Breads. Here is one version that I made this afternoon. Tasty, if I do say so myself. And only an hour away.

Oatmeal Bread – In One Hour

What you need (for 2 loaves):

  • 4 cups of Flour (I used Organic All Purpose Flour/White Flour)
  • I cup of Rolled Oats
  • 2-4 tbsp. Ground Flax Seeds (mine has dried berries in the mix, as you can¬†tell in the pictures)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. Instant Yeast /Bread Machine Yeast
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 1-2 tbsp. of Honey or Sugar (optional)

What to do:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F (you could wait – but I just would hate for you to forget!)
  2. In microwavable bowl add Oats and Milk – cook in microwave for 90 seconds
  3. In large bowl – add and mix dry ingredients (flour, yeast, salt, flax seeds, sugar)
  4. Add oat/milk mixture – stir
  5. Add oil and warm water. If the dough is watery/porridgy – add a little more flour.
  6. Mix/stir/knead until the ingredients are combined to a nice sticky ball of dough.
  7. Cover bowl with clean kitchen towel – let dough rest for 10 minutes.
  8. Cut dough ball in half – form two loaves (put some flour on your hands if needed) – and place on lined cookie sheet.
  9. Cover with kitchen towel – let rise for about 20 minutes (should just about double in size)
  10. Make a couple of 1 inch deep cuts in each loaf – then bake bread for about 25 minutes – at 350 F, until golden brown.
  11. Let cool on wire rack.

  12. In about 5 minutes (if you are as impatient as me) Рslice yourself a delicious slice of homemade Oatmeal Bread. All you need is butter, but please go ahead and add a good quality jam/jelly or some cheese ( I love creamy Havarti) if you like.

I was really happy with the result! What do you think?

Also – I used mostly organic ingredients – so I’m happy about that too : ) And the price. A loaf of good organic bread can cost up to $5.00 (or more sometimes) – and here I spent maybe $1.00 (if that). A really good deal all around.

That’s enough of my babble. Now, go enjoy your homemade bread.
