Basic Oat Quick Bread


  • (Dry Ingredients)
  • 2 cups Oat Flour (227g) (I use Bob Red Mill Whole Grain Oat Flour)
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder (Preferably Gluten & Aluminum Free)
  • ½ tsp Baking Soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2-4 tbs Stevia (Sweetener of Choice) **See Note Tips/Suggestions Below**
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • Flax, 4tbs, 26g
  • ½ Ginger (Optional)
  • ½ Nutmeg (Optional)
  • (Wet Ingredients)
  • 1 cup Greek Yogurt(Chobani is my preference)
  • 1 Whole Egg (50g) + 50g Egg White
  • 1 tbs Vanilla
  • ¼ cup (63g) No Sugar Added Apple Sauce


(350 Degrees for 60mins)

What you need:

  • 01 Basic Bread Two Large Bowls
  • Measuring Spoons
  • Whisk or Large Fork
  • Loaf Pan
  • Cooking Spray/Oil
  • Scale
  • Seran Wrap


4tbs Stevia is listed, but 2tbs can be used. 2tbs will yield a less sweeten bread, can be used if you plan to add breakfast spread on top, etc.

Store Silver Pan works best. I have used multiple bread loaf plans, many dark by Wilton & Bakers Joy, but have found that cheap store aluminum pans work best and provide the best outcome.


Additional Notes:

Bread can be cut as stated above, but ABSOLUTE best results are after allowing to cool in refrigerator overnight. Slicing in the morning and toasting. (Just a suggestion, but not necessary).

Bread crust may be slightly harder to the touch, this is normal. After cooling and refrigerating, the crust will moisten yielding a perfect loaf. It is always better the new day!!!
