Why put dried wild blueberries and currants in an oatmeal lovers bread?

Because it’s time for this month’s Bread Bakers!

July Bread Bakers Challenge: Your bread can be sweet or savory but it’s got to have oats! Oats of any kind: rolled, flour, steel cut, quick cooking, etc.


#BreadBakers is a group of bread loving bakers who get together once a month to bake bread with a common ingredient or theme. Follow our Pinterest board right here. Links are also updated each month on this home page.

We take turns hosting each month and choosing the theme/ingredient.

This month our wonderful Bread Bakers host for Our Oatmeal Event is Rocio from Kids and Chic ! Thanks Rocio!

    My mother-in-law introduced me to baking with currants. They must be a more common ingredient in England and I’ve enjoyed experimenting with them. Your bread looks like a great place for currants and blueberries too.
