Hearty Oat Loaf Recipe

Hearty Oat Loaf Recipe

I like to serve wedges of this bread with stew or bean soup. My husband thinks it's a big treat—little does he know how easy it is to make. My children eat it for breakfast the next day with butter and strawberry jam. —Judi Havens of Denton, Texas
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 40 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour

  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1-1/2 cups fat-free milk
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the flours, 1/2 cup oats, sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, combine the egg, milk and oil; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Spread batter into an 8- or 9-in. round baking pan coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with remaining oats.

"I think this recipe could be better with some alterations. Mine was rather crumbly and seemed to be lacking in flavor. So next time I think I'll use 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour or maybe more, and reduce the all-purpose then. I also might substitute brown sugar for the white sugar to enhance the flavor. I would still try this recipe again though, since I think it could be very good if the recipe was tweaked a bit."

"It's a little crumbly but moist and a nice taste! Really quick to throw together if you're short on time."

"I made this in a casserole because I don't have the right cake pan. It stuck to the bottom. I think next time I'll make it in a springform pan for easier release. It was yummy with butter, but when it tested done, it wasn't; so we enjoyed slightly doughy bread. I used 2 cups whole wheat flour and 1 cup AP flour and old fashioned oats."
