Cordy's CORE Oat Bread

Recommended Posts

This can take the shape of a round loaf, or can be baked flattened in a pie plate (scone-style). Either way, it's ultra-deelish, and very substantial!

 

Phase 1: The night before you are planning to serve this, mix together

1-1/2 cups regular oatmeal

1-1/2 cups FF buttermilk, or 1/2 cup FF plain yogurt, 1 cup skim milk & 1 tsp. white vinegar

Cover and refrigerate.

 

Phase 2:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spray cookie sheet or pie plate with cooking spray.

To bowl of rehydrated oatmeal, add:

2 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp.baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1 T. Splenda

1 cup oat bran (yes, the hot cereal!)

 

Mix to form a dough, then turn out onto baking sheet or pie plate (if making scones, you should cut the dough into 8ths.)

Bake for approx. 30 minutes, or until browned.

 

Enjoy!

 

All CORE ingredients, and approx. 13 points (fibre not capped!) for the entire recipe. Makes 8 filling scones, or 12 thin slices if baked in loaf.

Oh YUMMMMM Cordy!!! Is this your version of the Irish Soda Bread you mentioned?

 

This looks fantastic and I'll soak my oats tonight. I'll use yogurt and stevia. Can't wait!!

 

Question: Is the oat bran added dry? Thanks!

It's regular rolled oats that are soaked, and oat bran that is used in Phase #2 in lieu of fl**r! So the oat bran goes in dry to stiffen the dough. HTH.

I have my organic rolled oats soaking in homemade unsweetened soymilk and Bragg's organic raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar. I can't wait to bake it tomorrow, thanks Cordy!

 

I wonder how it would taste herbed, like adding chives, garlic etc?

Herbs would be great, Momma! A bit of minced garlic or some sliced green onions wouldn't hurt, either!!!

Morning Cordy,

 

I edited this because I originally asked a question, but when I took your bread out of the oven, it was perfect, so no need for the questions! :lol:

 

What I did:

I used 1 cup homemade unsweetened soymilk plus 1 tsp apple cider vinegar for the liquid. I did not refrigerate the oats (I forgot and there was no room in the fridge anyway, :embarrass )

 

I used 1/4 teaspoon white stevia extract powder for the sweetener.

 

1 added minced garlic and chives. I used about 2 teaspoons minced garlic, but that may be too much (it's VERY garlicky), but I happen to love garlic, so I'll eat it, but next time, I'll use less. I used about 2 rounded TB dried chives.

 

I baked it round (kinda flat) in my preheated cast iron skillet.

 

It came about fant-abulous!! What an excellent recipe, I think it may help my "bread" desires but still be Core! Thank you Cordy! :buddysmoo

OH. MY. GOODNESS. :eek:

 

I made these especially for DH. He's the Bread Guy...:rolleyes:

 

But I LOVE these! I'm going to call them Oat Scones. There are beautiful. They are as deep as the pie pan! And I love their flavor and texture~

 

These are KEEPERS, Cordy! Thumbs UP. Thanks for your efforts~ :buddysmoo

 

I can't wait until DH has one tonight. :) (Next time I think I'll "sprinkle" 1 TBS. of sucanat or brown sugar on top before cooking~ Mmmm!)


May you be happy. May you be well. May you be free from suffering.

Thanks for the feedback! I'll be making my next batch with herbs & a sprinkle of Parmesan on top!

 

Since they're scones and made out of rolled oats, I think we can serve them to our families with the following announcement:

 

"Ladies and gentlemen, the Rolling Scones!"

:p (Closest to the famous "tongue" logo!)

 

All this to say that, despite our disappointment with WW bread not being considered CORE, "you can't always get what you want, but if you try some time, you'll find, you'll get what you knead."

It's very dense, so if you do use a loaf pan, cook it at a lower temp (300-325) for a longer period.

I had my first one, pre-exercise.

 

Problem is: I want another one! :eek:

 

(How about a hearty rendition of, "Please Don't Trigger Me- Let Me Go!" ;) )

 

I'm thinking about running them through Mastercook to get an "idea" of points~

 

Also thought, if I want them to be real purty for company? I could do an egg-wash and then sprinkle the sucanat~ :D

Thanks, Frisky! :bcbsalute :D

 

I talked about them with DH on the phone...Guess who's coming home early tonight?! ;)

 

And he's already come up with another idea! OAT SHORTCAKE!

 

He wants to split open an Oat Scone, put sliced fruit (in the middle and on top), and have a squirt of light whipped cream for "dessert".

 

What a great idea! :buddysmoo

Oat Shortcake! WOW!

 

I was thinking along the uses for the savory version, besides being trhe "bread crumbs" for my Black Bean Burgers...what about a garlic, herb oat PIZZA CRUST?????? Doesn't that sound yummy?? I'm definitely going to try it. I'll put some sauteed veggies on top of the pre-baked crust and maybe some soy cheese.

 

BTW, I found a brand of ff mozzarella at the discoutnfood store and the only thing it has different than regular part-skim mozzarella is xanthan gum (which is a thickener from corn and I use it in other cooking/baking so I don't mind it). I may use it if I could make a good pizza crust, and Cordy's Oat Bread may be a good one to try!

Today is a GREAT day in my life. And I know why you were born, Cordy. To bring me this recipe today! ;) :D

 

I just had the most heavenly dessert!cloud9.gif

 

I had made the Oat Scones.

 

I took a Gravenstein apple, peeled, cored and sliced it. Put it in a small cup; sprinkled it with some Splenda and cinammon and covered it with Stretch-Tite. Cooked in the micro for 1 1/2 minutes. I left it to "cool".

 

I "toasted" a whole scone in my toaster oven. I cut it in 1/2 and put 1/2 the apple mixture (not the juices) inside the scone and 1/2 on top . I squirt a dab of light whipped cream on top.

 

Is there a number higher than 10?! Because it was~ :D

I just put a tweaked version of this in the oven --- I added a can of pumpkin, caramel sugar-free syrup and pumpkin pie spice --- and I cannot wait to taste it!

 

I also thought this is an awesome recipe for folks who have glueten or wheat intolerance (my friend's little boy does). I cannot wait to pass it on to them. :)

Let us know how you like the "tweak", Paris~ :)

 

DH had Oat Scones for breakfast (he probably added apple butter, too) and wrote a note: "They're even BETTER today!" :D

 

I'll have to see... ;)

I'm having a "Sally Field moment", along with a sigh of relief that I don't have to get by on my hand-modelling skillzzz!! :crazy:

 

Paris, your version sounds fab! I was wondering what would happen if I just made an extra-large batch of oatmeal (or Red River Cereal) one morning and used 3 cups of this as the basis - sans soaking, dairy-free, and a two-fer in terms of cooking. I am also contemplating what I would call "English peasant food" - dropping blobs of dough as dumplings on a beef/barley/veggie soup/stew. (I have been reading a few historical romances while on the Disabled List!)

If you make it, I will come. On the train. Yesterday. I love stew and dumplings! :crazy:

 

ETA: I just cut into the scones and had a bite. Mmmm. Just lovely. It's sweet but not too sweet, moist and warm. DH is coveting a small piece as we speak. :)

I was having a thought along the same lines, Cordy...only of course mine was "sweet"! :rolleyes: ;)

 

What about having cooked fruits/Splenda "bubbling" and topping them with an oat cobbler or oat "dumplings"?
