Oatmeal Sandwich Bread

This is my first bread post of 2014!  I might seem overly excited about this, but it is because I love bread.  It doesn’t matter how many times I bake bread, I still get excited every time it turns out well.  And this loaf of oatmeal sandwich bread turned out so well.  TheBetterHalf actually said it was his favorite loaf yet, and that really shocked me because there is a whole cup of oatmeal in here!  He is not the biggest fan of oatmeal.  But you can’t actually tell there are oats in here – they kind of dissolve and the resulting bread has a soft but sturdy texture.  It is the perfect sandwich bread!

Just look at that PB&J – doesn’t that picture make you want one?   I might need to have that for lunch today.  …

But not just any ordinary pancakes (although there’s nothing wrong with plain ol’ buttermilk pancakes or whole wheat pancakes) – sweet potato pecan pancakes! I was thinking about making pumpkin pancakes, but I have been on pumpkin overload lately. So I figured why not try out the “other orange puree” – mashed sweet potato! Is that a thing people say, the other orange puree? Probably not, but they really should….

Overnight Oats

Today I have a healthier recipe for you. Because as much as I wish every breakfast could be coffee cake and pancakes, most mornings it is an english muffin and berries or some oatmeal. I love steel cut oats in the winter, but in the summer it is just too hot for that! That’s why this recipe is perfect for summer – oatmeal that you don’t need to cook, and that you eat cold! It sounds strange, but it is so good. There are so many variations on this dish and you can customize it for your preferences….
