Light Oat Bread


For my kids' school lunches I made another loaf of bread in order to make sandwiches with. I found this recipe at AllRecipes.com and it had rave reviews. I like the idea of having some oatmeal in the bread, and while my kids probably wouldn't protest to oatmeal, it didn't have a chunky-chewy texture like I was at first expecting. The oatmeal blends in really well into the bread and combined with the brown sugar, has a slightly sweet taste to it (great for PB&J!) I did substitute one cup of whole wheat flour just to make it a teensy bit healthier and more fiber-y, but if you prefer your bread whiter and fluffier, just follow the original recipe and yours should be lighter looking than mine was. Overall, this was a very good, very basic bread recipe that would work well in nearly any sandwich combination. This is a must try :)
