I decided to put our bottle of local maple syrup to good use again!  I found a great recipe online for Maple Oatmeal Bread to make in my bread machine.  And since my bread machine and I seem to be on a roll, I decided to try the recipe out!  My husband and I were on our way for a  hike today so I felt a bit rushed to get everything done before we left.  So I made a quite a mess in the kitchen…And the flour found it’s way to my pants!

(Can you find my best bud Asher in the picture?)

So here’s the ingredients:

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce or 2-1/4 teaspoons) dry active yeast
  • 1 cup quick cooking rolled oats
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon canola oil
  • 1-1/4 cups plus 1 tablespoon very warm water (105F to 115F)
  •  And everything added to the pan:

    We got back from our hike 4 hours later and had warm bread waiting on us!  It tastes very light and sweet.  I am surprised the oatmeal did not seem to change the texture of the bread…again, very fluffy.  I love that I was able to use the syrup and am thinking of making french toast tomorrow.  Check back and see!
