Whole Grain Oat Bread – gluten free

What a wonderful treat to be able to enjoy an easy to make, tasty whole grain, gluten-free, vegan bread. It has a mild flavor and soft texture, making it very digestible.
Try it with your favorite spread.
It toasts up beautifully. We love to toast it and then spread the toast with a little marmalade.
Watch out… it is addictive!

  • After the machine has been running for a minute or two open the lid. If you notice dry flour adhering to the side of the inner bowl, quickly use a knife to mix it into the moist batter. Close the lid and let the cycle continue.
