What ingredients do I need to make this Skinny Oat Bread?

  • Old fashioned rolled oats : you will want to use old rolled fashioned oats not quick oats
  • Bananas, mashed or 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce or pumpkin puree ( if you want the bread be an oat banana bread you’ll want to use the 3 small bananas, if you want less banana flavor-use 1/3 cup mashed bananas, unsweetened applesauce or pumpkin purée.)
  • Unsweetened almond milk, cashew milk, or skim milk
  • Vanilla extract
  • Eggs or 1/2 cup liquid eggs
  • Cinnamon
  • Baking powder
  • Baking soda
  • Salt
  • Sugar free syrup– I use Mrs. Butterworth’s sugar free syrup
  • Sugar free milk chocolate chips– these are optional.  I like to use ChocoZero milk chocolate chips or Lily’s no sugar addd milk chocolate chips

 

What kind of pan do I use to make this Skinny Oat Bread?

I like to use an 8x 5 inches bread pan or two mini bread pans (5 1/2 x 3 inches).

If you don’t have one you use a single standard loaf pan instead-keep in mind the bread loaf will be thinner. 

Can this bread be made gluten-free?

Yes, simply use use Quaker Gluten Free Old Fashioned Rolled Oats Click HERE to order yours on Amazon.

How do I make this Skinny Oat Bread?

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8×5 inches bread pan or 2 mini bread pans (5 1/2 x 3 inches) with non stick cooking spray.

Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender.

Blend on high for about 20-40 seconds, or until batter is one the smooth side.

(It’s okay if it’s not too smooth-it’s important to NOT over blend/mix otherwise the bread texture will be completely off. )

Stir in peanut butter, peanut butter powder, or desired fruit, for additional points.   

Pour the batter into the prepared bread pan. Sprinkle the top with a few rolled oats & roughly 30 sugar free chocolate chips, if desired.

Bake for about 25-30 minutes, until golden brown or when a toothpick or knife is inserted and comes out clean when you stick it into the center of the loaf.

Remove from oven and cool for at least 10 minutes. 

Let the bread cool completely in the loaf pan.

Once it’s cooled, flip the loaf pan upside down on a clean surface to remove bread from pan.

Turn right-side up and let cool completely before slicing

Store leftover bread in an airtight container on the counter for 1-2 days or in the refrigerator for up to a week.

This bread can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge.

How many points for the whole loaf (10 slices) on the purple plan.

Made this today with a few minor changes (used monkfruit instead of the syrup and omitted the chocolate chips, but did add 2 tsp of PB2 chocolate). It was awesome! Didn't rise much but that's OK. I added it to the recipe builder and with my changes, 1/6 of the recipe was zero points on purple! Going to experiment with other add ins next week.

I have made it twice now and love it! And my picky adult son likes it too! Added some blueberries and a handful of walnuts the 2nd batch - delicious! Thank you so much!

Hi Jackie!

Thanks so much for your awesome review! I'm thrilled to hear it's been a hit at your house! The nuts and blueberries add-in's sound delish!

Have a wonderful day!

I followed the recipe as written but mine sank in the middle. Any idea what I may have done wrong?

Hi Kristin.

That is a great question-there are a few things that could have caused that to happen:

Too much liquid – Try decreasing the unsweetened almond milk by one to two tablespoons. If the batter is too dry add liquid a teaspoon at a time until it is moist. If it looks too wet, add a little more oats until it looks as expected.

Not enough salt – Try increasing the salt to ¼ teaspoon.

Over rising- this is usually the case-when the loaf over rises - it will collapse during baking or shortly after removing it from the oven. Be sure to always bake bread on the middle rack.

Hope that helps,

Linds

Hi, Thank you for your great recipes. I have tried several. In this oat bread, I omitted the chocolate chips and the syrup, used fresh frozen pineapple chunks instead of the applesauce or bananas and blended in 1/3 cup of Splenda and 1/3 cup of unsweetened coconut. The texture and flavor was delicious! Will definitely make again, even my son asked for seconds, though he wanted to smear it with cream cheese frosting! Thanks again, Michelle
