Easy Walnut Oatmeal Bread (Bread Machine Version)
Yield: 1 1/2 Pound loaf, 12 slices
2/3 cup milk
1/3 cup water
2 tablespoons Nature's Approved Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons Brown Sugar
1 tablespoon Nature's Approved Grape Seed Flour
2 tablespoons Oatmeal
1/2 cup Walnuts
3 cups Bread Flour
2 1/4 teaspoons yeast
Bring all your ingredients to room temperature. Whisk the dry ingredients, (except the walnuts and yeast) in a large bowl and set aside. Proof your yeast by dissolving it in 1/3 cup of warm water plus 2 tablespoons of brown sugar. Set it in a warm spot and let it get foamy. If it doubles in size after 10 minutes, you know it's active.
Next measure and warm your 2/3 cup of milk and 2 tablespoons of coconut oil. Add both your milk/oil mixture and the developed yeast to your oiled bread machine bowl. Lastly, add in the dry ingredients into the container and start the machine. If your unit is like mine, it will beep to tell you when to add the walnuts.
When baking is complete, remove bread from the machine and let cool for about an hour on a wire rack. I have a bread slicing rack so I am able to get even slices.
This bread is perfect for sandwiches or to be eaten with a little butter and jam. It also makes a wonderful hostess gift for Easter and other celebrations. Check HERE for more easy to bake bread recipes with or without a bread machine.
