Not willing to be outsmarted by a loaf of bread (or lack thereof), I hopped online and found this recipe for Oatmeal Whole Wheat Quick Bread. It's dense and thick and the perfect partner to a big bowl of soup. It's also a great base recipe for additions. I subbed part of the whole wheat flour for a little rye and spelt and threw in some Italian seasoning and sharp white cheddar cheese but I think it'd also be great with sweet additions, like dried fruit or cinnamon and sugar.
And the best part? It only takes a few minutes to throw all of the ingredients together, and only bakes for 20. It's also 100% whole grain, so you have no excuse for not having healthy, hot fresh bread at every meal!
(yields one very small loaf - double to bake in a loaf pan)
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
Preheat oven to 450.
In a large bowl, combine oatmeal, flour, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, dissolve honey in vegetable oil and stir in milk. Combine both mixtures and stir until a soft dough is formed. Form the dough into a ball and place on a silicone baking mat, lightly oiled baking sheet or pizza stone.
Bake in a preheated oven for 20 minutes or until bottom of loaf sounds hollow when tapped.
