Trying to eat healthier for the new year. I've bought some flax and found this recipe to use it. This is great for breakfast on the go or after a workout.
- 1 1⁄2 cups cranberries
- 2⁄3 cup orange juice
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 cup oat flour
- 1 cup steel cut oats
- 1⁄2 cup flax seed meal
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 tablespoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 cup turbinado sugar
- 1⁄4 cup canola oil
- 1 3⁄4 cups low-fat buttermilk
- 2 eggs, beaten
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Grease a 9 x 13-inch pan and set aside.
- Soak steel cut oats and buttermilk in a small bowl for at least 5 minutes.
- In a medium bowl, combine the dry ingredients; flours, flaxseed meal, salt, baking soda and sugar.
- In a large bowl, combine the oil, eggs, orange juice, buttermilk with steel cut oats and cranberries. Stir until combined.
- Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix well. Pour into the pan and bake 45-50 minutes.
Sorry, but I didn't like this much. The only thing I had to change was using blueberries for cranberries, but besides that, I didn't really like the flavor (the oj, lack of sweetness) or the texture of the bread itself (oats were kind of crunchy). This may just be my person tastes- seems like other people thought it was great.
i changed the raw cranberries to 1 cup of sweetened dried cranberries and the oat flour to unbleached white. it turned out well and was pleasantly sweet. try to use the required steel cut oats---it's the soul of the recipe. would make again, quite good!
Finally made this bread. Made a special trip to the bulk barn to get the exact ingredients. Would rate it 5 for taste and being original (definitely not Irish soda bread - I was weaned on that!) but only 4 for texture. Next time I make it I will use regular oatmeal. Thanks for an interesting and healthy bread.
