Oatmeal Whole Wheat Quick Bread Recipe

If you have a bunch of oatmeal and whole wheat flour lying around like I do and think you need to buy bread, think again! You have everything you need to make a wholesome loaf. You don’t even need yeast! I made this this weekend for my little sister when she visited me in Boston. Delicious, sweet, and almost biscuit like. This bread is a little dense.

INGREDIENTS:

*1 cup quick oats oatmeal

* 1 cup whole wheat flour

* 2 tsp baking powder

* 1/2 tsp salt

* 1.5 TBS sugarfree strawberry preserves (or you can use honey)

* 1 TBS of apple sauce (or you can use vegetable oil)

* 1 cup vanilla soy milk (or regular milk)

* optional: dash of vanilla extract and touch of cinnamon

DIRECTIONS:

1. Place everything except for the apple sauce and soy milk into a blender.

2. Mix the milk and apple sauce thoroughly. Then pour into the blender. This prevents uneven lumpiness and spots of random sweetness in the bread.

3. Set the oven to 350 degrees.

4. Spray bottom of your pan or muffin tray with cooking spray.

5. Pour the batter in and then place in the oven!

6. Should take about 20 minutes, but constantly check. Bread will be done when you puncture with a fork and no goo sticks to the prongs of your fork.

7. Enjoy with some jam and low fat butter! Yum!

The ingredients in my blender. What a wholesome medley!

Look at that dough! I actually ate some off of my fingers. It was THAT good. The aroma somehow took me back to childhood when the days were so carefree…

Ding! My bread muffins are done! A dozen!

    So, I used oat flour in place of whole wheat flour, and Oat revolution! instant packets in place of the Quick oatmeal. I didn’t use anywhere near as much honey because of the little bit of brown sugar in the oatmeal packets. I also used organic rice milk from Trader Joe’s instead of regular milk, since I live in a lactose intolerant household. And I used mini muffin tins because I couldn’t find my regular muffin tins (someone didn’t put them back where they were supposed to be -_-). The batter tasted great with the adjustments, and I’m hoping they turn out well. I’ve been looking for something I can pre-make for my early morning breakfasts. :) Thank you Cassey!

  3. So delicious! Wonderful recipe, and so healthy!

  4. Oh yeah, and I forgot to mention, I sliced a banana up and sandwiched it between two pieces of bread. My personal attempt healthify it up further. ;]

  5. Tried your oatmeal bread today. I didn’t have whole wheat flour and I didn’t want to use regular flour, so I decided to grind up oatmeal instead and use that as the flour. It turned out quite well, despite the fact that I doubled on the oatmeal lol. Even my mom liked it, and she’s quite new to all this clean eating as well. The honey also added just the right touch of sweetness, which I really liked. I would like to try the actual recipe as is though when I do get whole wheat flour. Great recipe still! =]

  6. Made this the other day in the same kind of mini bread/muffin tins as shown above. Loved it!!

  7. Just came out of the oven! Smells more like cake to me, maybe because of the vinilla soy milk, but oh well! 71 calories per slice, amazing! Never found any bread with less….
    I’m so proud, first bread I’ve ever baked, all by myself. I made my own applesauce, by boiling half an apple for about 15 minutes and then mashing them up! ( That’s what google said to do.) I used honey, since I had blueberry spread, instead of strawberry preserves. Also, I don’t have any muffin pans, neither any pan for bread, so I just used a heart shaped cake pan, so it looks extra special!

    PS: I’m so nervous, tomorrow I have an audition for my local dance group!

  8. Just made this! Can’t wait untill it gets out of the oven!
    I don’t eat bread, and my mom has caught up to that, so she’s been threatening by giving me only sandwiches for school… I told her not to worry herself, i’ll prepare my own food for school. She said no. So then I thought, when you look around you and believe you have no place to go, look up! That’s where Cassie shows up! If I’m already forced to eat bread, at least once in a while, might as well have some blogilates approved bread!
    Thank you Cassie, for saving me again! :D <3

  9. Hi, Cassie! I was wondering if you had a recipe for Ezikiel’s bread???

  10. Hi! Sorry for my english but i’m a french popster!!!
    I tried those breads this morning, just like your recipe and they were fabulous!! Even my husband found them delicious!! I’ve never used apple sauce instead of oil but i’m going to do it now more often, because it’s super!!
    Thanks for the sharing!!! i’m going to try others of your great recipes!!

  11. These were absolutely delicious! I used honey instead of the jam as I put the jam on after they were baked and I used unsweetened almond milk instead of regular milk or soy. My batter was more runny, but they still turned out. Also I did not get 12 muffins, I only was able to get 8. I used just regular standard muffin size tins and filled them 3/4 full.

  12. Since you are using a blender anyway, you can make applesauce from scratch. Put 4 chopped apples, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and (optional) the zest of 1 lemon into your blender, and blend away! You might need to add a little bit of water to aid the blending.

    I guarantee you this home-made applesauce is WAY more delicious than any store-bought applesauce.
