I was fortunate enough to have a special volunteer in the kitchen this afternoon. I decided to take advantage and try out this healthy bread recipe which Yvonne shared with me during the week.
I added a few ingredients of my own and left some out in the hopes of bringing the calories down even lower. I vowed to let Luca do everything from start to finish by herself ? See the photos below as evidence.
Here we go….
HEALTHY OAT BREAD
3 cups of raw oats
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tsp salt
1 tbs arrow root powder
Preheat the oven to 180
Using a food processor or a blender grind 3 cups of rolled oats into fine oat flour.
You need to grind for at least two minutes so that your oat flour is super fine.
Add the baking powder and arrow root to the blender and blend for a further 30 seconds.
In a large bowl mix together the eggs, almond milk and salt. Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and mix until completely combined.
Spray a small bread pan with cooking spray.
Add the mixture to your bread pan and place on the top rack of your oven.
Bake for about 40 minutes until inserted toothpick comes out clean.
We left it to cool for a couple minutes and I sliced it up. (The only step I refused to let Lulu do by herself)
The original recipe calls for a 1/2 cup of honey. I thought to attempt it without the honey and add in some arrow root powder and see what happens. Luckily it turned out great!
We then made some leek and sweet potato soup. (We replaced the regular white potatoes with orange sweet potatoes instead.)
I added in some almond milk to make it more creamy and blended it all together.
Lastly we added salt and pepper and supper was served and enjoyed by all.
Let me know if you have any cool recipes! We would love to try them out.
Wishing you a fabulous evening.
