My little one loves bread, but he is on a gluten-free diet for the time being.
How thankful to my loving Creator for this simple, economical recipe for oat bread!
It is super easy to make and tastes really good. The best part is, that it only has three ingredients!
My little one loves it just as much, if not better than the regular store bought wheat and spelt breads we were buying before. I am soooo happy about that!
So, without further delay, here's the recipe...
Oh, one more thing....I like baking this bread in a glass loaf pan. I don't oil the pan because the bread pops out easily after baking, and any residue washes away without any problems.
Easy Oat Bread Recipe
Pour the water into your loaf pan. Add the salt and stir until the salt dissolves completely. Add the oat flakes and stir well until all the flakes are wet.
The batter is ready when the water turns white and the oats have started to break down a little.
Bake at 350 for 1- 1.5 hours until the top of the loaf is firm to the touch and brown to your liking. I like mine to have a nice golden brown color, so sometimes I let it bake a little longer.
Once brown and firm, remove from oven and allow it to cool. Do you see how nicely the loaf is pulling away from the sides of the pan? Sometimes I run a butter knife along the sides to make sure it is completely separated.
You can pop it out of the pan for cooling, or leave it in. I just leave mine in and slice it in the pan to keep the crumbs on top contained.
I usually refrigerate the bread overnight so it can firm up some more before I slice it.
I am not sure how long this bread will keep in the fridge. Normally, I slice it and place only what I need for the day in a sealed container in the fridge. Then I store the rest in the freezer until we need it.
My family likes this bread toasted or warmed. It's nice topped with avocado, or steamed veggies, or any other toppings you would normally put on regular bread.
When sliced very thin it also makes a delicious zwieback (double baked bread)...mmm, nice and crunchy!
Variation: Add a little less water and bake in a shallow pans for a crispy flat bread. (See picture at beginning of post). It makes a great pizza crust!

Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Psalm 103:1-3
If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.
