Or maybe I should call this Maple Oats Chia bread, Or Oats Chia Maple Bread or bread with Maple, Oats and Chia. There are 24 ways to arrange the word chia, maple, oats bread but for sanity’s sake let’s call this Oats and Chia Bread. It seems easy on the tongue and the palate.
Now the baker in me needs to bake most of the time. I am forever testing bread recipes for the blog for my constant carb fix. Most of my bread on the blog is from pantry staples. The whole purpose of this bread-making exercise is defeated if the recipe calls for exotic ingredients and a supermarket run. We might as well pick up the bread from there !!
So I decided to bake! With some oats,maple and chia seeds and other ingredients loosely inspired by my previous recipes.Honestly I was not expecting too much from this bread as I had not tried a vegan bread before and was not sure of the outcome.
But Oh My!! This bread exceeded all my expectations. It was Delicious. It had the sweetness from the maple syrup but not overpowering. The crumbs after cooling had a nice chew from the oats and chia seeds.
- Perfect Crumbs
- Pantry Staples
In all honesty, after the first bite,I missed my coffee which means these were a no brainer good. Wholesome and just a perfect carb fix.
Though I refer to it as bread, It does not have the sandwich bread texture. The crumbs are soft and good enough for a bite as bread. It lacks the heavy-duty sandwich bread structure but is just good enough for a good slather of cheese or butter or nothing at all(if you a vegan)
- Can be Toasted
- Cannot be made into a sandwich
- And is addictively delicious
