Honey Oat Bread -- YUM!

Hey All! I hope you are having a good week - shortened work weeks are the BEST! I'm planning to be very productive this weekend, how about you?

Last weekend I did some sewing and baking...yup super Susie Homemaker. Anyway, I found this recipe from Yammie's GlutenFreedom. It is originally a gluten free recipe, but I made some tweaks, because I'm not GF (nor do I have some of the ingredients the GF version called for).

Here's the recipe (my non GF version):
4 cups of oats (plus more for the top)
2 scant tablespoons yeast
1 1/2 cups warm water
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons honey
1/2 cup corn starch
1/2 cup wheat flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
4 eggs

Instructions from Yammie:
Blend the oats in the food processor until they're pretty fine. Combine the yeast and water, add the oil, honey, starch, flour, and oats and beat until combined. Add the salt, cinnamon, and eggs. Beat for a few minutes until fluffy. Pour into a well greased 10 inch loaf pan and allow to rise for about 45 minutes until doubled. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350ºF. Sprinkle the top of the risen loaf with some more oats and cut a few slits in the top with a serrated knife. Bake for about 45 minutes. Allow to cool before cutting. 

This bread is delicious! Seriously, the best bread I've ever made. My one complaint is that after a few days, it became very crumbly. Not dry, just didn't hold together well. The original recipe called for xantham gum (I have no idea what this is). In the comments on her site, Yammie said that this helps the strength of the dough...so I'm guessing that was the issue. But the flavor is still great, so I'm good!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
