Oatmeal Whole Wheat Quick Bread
This recipe was adapted from a recipe I found which uses honey and regular milk. I substituted with vegan options and found that it was moist, delicious and earthy. This is now a favorite, easy, quick bread in my house.
1 C rolled oats
1 C whole wheat flour
2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1 T plus 1 t agave syrup
1 T vegetable oil
1 C soy milk
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
2. Grind oatmeal in a food processor or blender. In a large bowl, combine oatmeal, flour, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, dissolve agave in vegetable oil then stir in the soy milk. Combine both mixtures and stir until a soft dough is formed. Form the dough into a ball and place on a lightly oiled baking sheet.
3. Bake in preheated oven for about 20 minutes, or until bottom of loaf sounds hollow when tapped.
