Baking bread is one of my favorite thing to do..The main thing in baking your own bread is, you can customize it as per your health needs. In my place, there is only two bread available white bread and wheat bread and i am sure, that wheat bread is not 100% wheat, it has maida in it. When we started to have bread for breakfast, i need 100% wheat bread. So i started baking my own bread. Now i have a whole wheat bread recipe, multi grain bread, milk honey bread, vegan white bread..You can check my other bread recipes too..
But i always wanted to bake a bread with oats in it. Though i have oats in my multi grain bread. I wanted a separate oats bread. So i baked this. I added honey to this because honey and oats are just perfect. I made this with whole wheat and it turned out good..I enjoyed lots of sandwiches using this bread..So try this out and let me know how it turns out for you..
