Quinoa Oatmeal Bread #Breadbakers

Quinoa Oatmeal Bread
Quinoa Oatmeal Bread is more than just quinoa and oats. I know, I know, but to say, Quinoa Oatmeal Bran Buttermilk Wheat Quick Bread would probably even give Google a headache!
When I saw this challenge from The Bread Bakers, I admit that I got a bit scared.

I never made bread with cooked grains before. It was well worth the try. Quinoa helps keep this bread so moist. It is a bit dense but toasts up well. The multi-grain facet adds depth. Buttermilk makes it just that little bit richer.
I’m glad I chose to use it as a whole grain as opposed to a flour. Look at those delicious bits in there.

Oatmeal and bran flakes add extra nutrition and texture. How sweet this bread gets also depends on the type of bran flake you use. The less processed the better.

    That is just chock full of goodness, Cindy! Of course, I’d no doubt negate the healthy by slathering it full of butter once toasted but I am already imagining the butter melting into all the nooks and crannies.

  16. Cindy – I am totally fascinated by the texture of this bread with quinoa and oatmeal – I do prefer dense bread – in a weird way, it keeps me fuller longer!

  17. That looks gorgeous, Cindy! I love how the whole grain-y goodness is swirled throughout. Definitely want to try this.
