Oatmeal Tea Bread

During our Countdown to 2011, I found a great recipe from Jackie for "the best ever muffins".

I decided to give them a try, since I do love oats!

This bread is quite delicious, sweet, but not overly sweet -- pairs nicely with tea!  I bet that's why it's called "tea bread"!

Oatmeal Tea Bread - Adapted from Loving My Domestic Life

1/4 C milk
1 egg
2 T olive oil
1 1/4 C applesauce
1 C oats
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1/2 C brown sugar
1/8 C sugar
1/2 C whole wheat flour
3/4 C all purpose flour

1 T brown sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 T oats

Begin by mixing the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.

This includes the sugars, baking soda, salt, oats and spices.

Then, stir in the flour.

In a second bowl, combine the olive oil, applesauce, egg and milk. Mix well.

Combine the applesauce mixture together with the flour mixture.

Stir until just moist.

Spread into a lightly greased bread loaf pan.

Combine the 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, 1 T brown sugar and 1 T oats together in a small container and then sprinkle this topping over the bread.

Bake at 350 for 45minutes to an 1 hour, or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center of the loaf.  Alternatively, you can make muffins -- baking for ~15-18 minutes, or until done.

Cool on a wire cooling wrack.

Then, slice and serve.

  2. This sounds wonderful and looks so pretty! Thanks!

  3. I've tried commenting before but somehow I can't.

    I do like your mindset as it reminds me of myself nearly 25 years ago as a new bride. We still strive to cook from scratch even now with three teenagers!


  4. This looks really good. I love Oatmeal anything. I will definitely try this. Thanks, guys!

  5. I am going to make this is sounds delicious. Love your blog I am a new follower.

  6. This looks really really yummy!!! I've already printed several of your recipes posted here:)

  7. Looks delicious! I love oats and can't wait to try this one out!! Thanks!

  8. Oh yes please, spread a little butter and I am so there. Love the texture.

  9. Oh yuuuum! This looks so good! I <3 bread.

  10. Hi! I am new to your blog and see that you have a couple of gluten free recipes in your index. I know this may be a long shot, but thought I would ask...

    I would LOVE to make this bread, but can't obviously have the wheat flour. Do you have any recommendations or suggestions of a substitute? Thanks so much! Amanda

  11. Ooo, I love it already :). I'm a big fan of oatmeal too. Miriam@Meatless Meals For Meat Eaters

  12. id love a slice right now thank you. haha. love how its got so much apple sauce in it...yummmm!

    I am by no means an expert in GF baking -- but, if you're okay with oats, I'd go ahead and try making it using a GF flour mix, like one of Amy's blends --, in place of the wheat flours.

    Any other GF folks have suggestions?

  14. I really love oats in baked goods - they have such a nice, mild flavor. This looks moist and delicious!

  15. Oatmeal bread sounds so comforting and filling. I am trying to figure out how I have never tried this before. Thanks for linking up to "Your recipe, My kitchen" on Monday!

  16. I made this last night, it's so good! I more than doubled the cinnamon, and used whole wheat white flour for everything, but other than that stuck to the recipe. It's such a nice idea for breakfast or an afternoon snack (yes, with tea or coffee). Great, unique recipe! (Oh and mine baked in less than 40 minutes.)

    I blogged it too: Adventures In Baking: Oatmeal Tea Bread.

  17. I made this again recently and added toasted walnuts. It's a great recipe, thank you so much! A new staple.


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
