The Background Story
One Loaf of Vegan, Oatmeal Bread
This is just a beautiful, vegan, oatmeal bread - rich in warm flavours contributed by a simple though delightful selection of ingredients. We prefer baking with whole, rolled oats rather than the quick oats ... and we use these rolled oats in this recipe as well. While essentially the same as quick oats, we prefer the firmer texture of the whole, flaked, rolled oat and the fact that it has been less processed/handled prior to our use. Besides, these large flakes of oats certainly look nicer than a few small crumbs of oat pieces.
Unlike most of our other loaves, we use molasses to sweeten this loaf. We like the warm flavours of the rolled oats and a bit of whole wheat flour. The beautiful, warm sweetness of the molasses, added very modestly, plays nicely with these other ingredients.
Still, this is the easiest oatmeal loaf to make and should be included in any home baker's repertoire of breads. It could end up being a favourite - even with those who aren't oatmeal lovers. This recipe yields one full-sized loaf of about 1 1/2 Lbs (about 600 g).
Please note: This recipe has not been tested with steel cut oats. Using steel cut oats may cause need to adjust the volume of oats and/or other ingredients.
