Eggless whole wheat and oatmeal quick bread

This is the second time I am attempting a bread at home. My previous honey-oats bread was quite a tedious process with lots of kneading and a long fermentation time but this time I have tried a very easy version (easiest I should say!) of it which does not need any fermentation and absolutely no kneading at all!! and guess what.. the entire process of preparation and baking got over within an hour! When such a healthy bread can be made so easily at home, I would really think twice before buying a loaf in the market the next time :) Enjoy this healthy bread with any spread of your choice or you could even toast it or make a sandwich! 
Recipe source -

  • Whole wheat flour - 1 cup
  • Rolled oats - 1 cup
  • Salt - 1/2 Tsp
  • Baking powder - 2 Tsp
  • Honey - 1 and 1/2 Tbsp
  • Olive oil - 1 Tbsp (you could also use vegetable oil or any flavorless oil)
  • Milk - 1 cup

  1. Grease and dust a loaf tin
  2. Pre-heat the oven to 200C
  3. Grind the rolled oats to a fine flour
  4. In a large mixing bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients - whole wheat flour, oatmeal flour, salt and baking powder and make a well in the center 
  5. In another bowl, mix honey and oil together vigorously and then add milk. Mix thoroughly
  6. Pour the milk-honey-oil mixture into the mixing bowl containing the dry ingredients and mix well to form a moist batter as shown 
  7. Pour in the batter into the greased loaf tin and bake in a pre-heated oven for 20 minutes
  8. Cool the bread on a wire rack 
  9. Once it is completely cooled, cut it into slices and enjoy it with any spread of your choice!
