Greetings from Florida!

I’m warm! I also have sand wedged in some creative places…

Moving on!

This bread is many things. It’s easy, quick to throw together (it just spends a while in the oven), and is healthy, containing the trifecta of whole wheat flour, steel cut oats and wheat germ.


Also, it would be the perfect thing to make later this week…check back on Thursday and you will see why. =)

  • 11.25 ounces whole wheat flour about 2-1/2 cups
  • 2.25 ounces all purpose flour about 1/2 cup
  • 1/2 cup steel-cut oats
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups low-fat buttermilk
  • 1 large egg lightly beaten


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Coat a 9 x 5" loaf pan with cooking spray. Line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper, and coat with cooking spray.
  • Weigh or lightly spoon flours into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine flours and next 6 ingredients (through salt). Combine buttermilk and egg; add to flour mixture. Stir just until combined.

    This turned out great. I made a loaf and then three biscuit shapes. All turned out soft and tasty. The heartiness of it is perfect for holding toppings. I added flax for fiber, and it held together.
