No Kneading Oatmeal Bread

Mar, 16, 2018

This oatmeal bread is super easy to make because you don’t have to make rolls or shape into a loaf. All I did was press the dough into regular large baking dish.Sometime I made the bread red by adding some grated beets and then my kids call it dragon blood bread:) It’s easy to make this gluten-free by using gluten-oarts and all-purpose flour instead. 

  • 2 ½ cups  milk
  • 50g butter
  • 2 ½ cups oats plus some for decoration
  • 6 cups white spelt flour or all-purpose flour (maybe more)
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 ½ tsp. active dry yeast
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • Combine milk, oats and butter in a saucepan and bring to boil while stirring. When it’s kind of gluey it’s done.
  • Let it cool for 10 minutes.
  • Pour oatmeal mix into to a large bowl or kitchen aid.
  • Add flour, maple syrup, salt and yeast.
  • Work the dough until it’s elastic and lets go of the bowl.
  • Cover bowl with a towel and leave to rise in a draft free place for 1 hour.
  • Line a large baking dish with parchment paper and press dough into it and make it even.
  •  Cover with towel and rise again for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to F400.
  • Brush dough with some warm milk and sprinkle oats over.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes until it’s golden brown and center is firm.
  • Cut into squares once bread is cool.
