Oat Flour Bread recipe requires no flour, yeast, or kneading to make delicious homemade gluten-free bread using 100% oats! Enjoy the taste of old fashioned oatmeal bread in a fraction of the time using only a blender!
Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Liberally grease a 8X4" loaf pan using non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
Make the oat flour by placing 2 ½ cups rolled oats in a high-powered blender or a food processor. Blend the oats until it turns into a fine, powdery flour, about 30 seconds - 1 minute.
To the oat flour add the baking powder, baking soda, salt, yogurt, milk, eggs, oil, and honey. Blend well, scraping down the sides halfway through. The batter will be thin.
Add the remaining 1 cup oats to the blender. Pulse 2-3 times, until just combined but not finely ground.
Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. If desired, sprinkle additional oats on top before baking.
Bake for 50-55 minutes, rotating pan and loosely tenting foil over the top halfway through. For best results, insert an instant read thermometer in the bread to make sure the temperature is 200ºF. If you don't have a thermometer, use a long wooden skewer, making sure it comes out without wet dough.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What are the dairy-free adaptations?I have tested the recipe replacing the yogurt with unsweetened applesauce, and the results were good. The crumb binded slightly less, but overall the results were favorable.Use 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce and 3/4 cup non-dairy milk. Since there is more moisture, the bread may have to bake a few minutes longer.
Do I need to use a blender or food processor?Not necessarily, but you will have to purchase oat flour. First whisk together the dry ingredients in a large bowl - oat flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl whisk together the liquid ingredients - yogurt, eggs, milk, and honey.Add the liquid ingredients to the dry, mixing well. Stir in the remaining 1 cup oats and pour into a greased loaf pan. Bake as directed.
What is the best way to tell when the bread is done?If oat flour bread is undercooked, it will be doughy and break apart upon slicing. Oatmeal bread contains a lot of moisture, so you need to make sure it has plenty of time for the liquid to be absorbed in the oats, even if the crust appears done.For best results insert an instant read thermometer in the bread and make sure the temperature is 200ºF. If you don't have a thermometer, use a long wooden skewer, making sure it comes out without wet dough.
What is the best way to store / freeze?For best results let the bread cool completely before slicing. Store in an airtight container at room temperature up to 3 days. To freeze, slice completely cooled bread and store in a ziplock freezer bag, with air removed, up to 3 months.
