Honey Oat Quick Bread

  • 1 C plus 2 T rolled oats, divided
  • 2 1/3 C  flour
  • 2 1/4 t baking powder
  • 1/4 t baking soda
  • 1 1/4 t salt
  • 8 oz. (scant 1 C) plain yogurt (we used vanilla)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 C olive oil
  • 1/4 C honey
  • 3/4 C milk

Generously coat a loaf pan with oil.  Sprinkle 1 T oats in the pan.  Tip the pan back and forth to coat the bottom with oats.  Position rack in middle of oven; preheat to 375 degrees.  Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.  Using a fork, beat the remaining 1 C oats, yogurt, egg, oil, and honey in a large bowl until well blended.  Stir in milk.  Gently stir the flour mixture into the yogurt mixture just until thoroughly incorporated but not over mixed.  Immediately scrape the batter into the pan, spreading evenly to the edges.  Sprinkle the remaining 1 T oats over the top.  Bake the loaf until well browned on top and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 50 minutes.  It is normal for the top to crack.  Let stand in the pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes.  Run a table knife around the loaf to loosen it and turn it out onto the rack.  Let cool until barely warm, about 45 minutes.

IMG_3161

2 cups whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
zest of 1 lemon* (about 1 Tbs)
juice of 1 lemon (about 1/4 cup)
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup honey granules (or sugar)
1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
1/2 tsp lemon extract (or 2 more tsp of lemon zest)
2 eggs

Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, combine the lemon zest, lemon juice, buttermilk, honey granules, coconut oil, lemon extract, and eggs; beat well. Blend in the flour mixture until combined. Place muffin liners in 10 muffin cups, and pour the batter evenly into the cups. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, or until muffins are golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool a few minute before removing from tin. Serve warm (these taste incredible warm), or cool on wire racks.

*You can get the zest from the lemon by scraping it against a cheese grater. But make sure that you do this before juicing the lemon!
