Oatmeal-Applesauce Quick Bread

By Carolyn Williams, PhD, RD | April 13, 2020 | Rally Health

Oat flour, a whole-grain source of soluble fiber, gives this slightly sweet bread a hearty texture. Just one slice is filling enough for breakfast or snack time. Oat flours are available for purchase, but it’s easy to make your own at home with old-fashioned oats and a blender or food processor. To do it, simply place 2 ½ to 3 cups of oats in either appliance and process 30 seconds, or until finely ground.
