Quick Oatmeal Bread
Tasty, easy, good. I made this recipe for the first time yesterday, and was very pleased with it.

It's a very easy to whip together quick bread recipe. Very tasty "as is", I think next time I make it, I'll add some chopped walnuts and some orange zest.

It seems like one of those recipes that would be infinitely amenable to/adaptable with "add-ins" - basically I'll bet almost any kind of chopped nuts and/or chopped dried fruit would probably work well.

I adapted it from the original Good Housekeeping recipe to be low-sugar and whole grain. The original recipe is below, my mods are in parentheses:

Oatmeal Quick Bread
From Good Housekeeping
Total Time: 1 hr 15 min
Cook Time: 1 hr
Oven Temp: 350

• 1 cup milk
• 1 cup quick-cooking oats, uncooked
• 1 tablespoon quick-cooking oats, uncooked
• 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
• 6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) margarine or butter, melted
• 1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed ( I subbed half as much brown sugar/splenda blend)
• 2 cups all-purpose flour (I subbed White Wheat Flour)
• 2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
• 1/2 teaspoons salt

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 8 1/2" by 4 1/2" or 9" by 5" loaf pan. In large bowl, combine milk and 1 cup oats; let stand 5 minutes.
2. To oat mixture, add eggs, margarine or butter, and brown sugar; mix well, making sure there are no lumps of brown sugar. Stir in flour, baking powder, and salt just until blended.
3. Spoon batter into loaf pan. Sprinkle top with remaining oats. Bake 55 to 60 minutes in 8 1/2" by 4 1/2" pan (bake 35 to 40 minutes in 9" by 5" pan) until toothpick inserted in center of loaf comes out clean. Cool bread in pan on wire rack 10 minutes; remove from pan and cool completely on wire rack.
