Tried and Liked: Honey Oat Quick Bread

Cook’s notes: This recipe is from EatingWell, and I’ll be baking another loaf of this bread for our upcoming “Happy and Healthy Holidays” potluck at work. It’s very easy to make, and the bread contains whole-wheat flour, oats, and yogurt. One slice is very filling (and has 3 g of fiber). It’s wonderful toasted with a little light butter and strawberry jam. Or have a slice of this bread, toasted, with fresh blackberries for breakfast.

Hearty oat bread

Modifications: I mistakenly added 2-1/4 tsp of both baking powder and baking soda. However, the bread still turned out well. I used non-fat plain Greek yogurt and 1% milk, as directed. I used my stand mixer to beat the yogurt mixture, instead of beating it by hand with a fork.

EatingWell says, “This honey-oat bread has a pleasant flavor and divinely moist, tender crumb. It requires minimal mixing and cleanup, calls for ingredients usually stocked in the pantry, and is tasty yet healthful.” The recipe makes 1 loaf with 12 slices.
