What’s In This Vegan Oat Bread Recipe?

Be sure to visit the recipe card below for full ingredient amounts and recipe instructions!

  • Rolled Oats: I absolutely love rolled oats, they have the perfect texture. They work better than quick oats and hold up well.
  • Warm Water
  • Extra virgin olive oil – or another neutral oil like vegetable oil or avocado oil. Or even melted coconut oil works well.
  • Sea Salt
  • Instant Yeast – I used instant yeast to make my breads: it rises quickly (as opposed to active dry yeast) so there’s no need to leave the dough out overnight to rest.  My dough rose in about 30 minutes.
  • All Purpose Flour – or use whole wheat flour, buckwheat flour, or even a certified gluten-free flour if desired. Use a combination of flours for different textures!
  • Flaxseed Meal: I always add a scoop in my breads for a little extra nutritional punch!  I add a scoop to breakfasts, lunches, or smoothies!

Bread Variations

  • You can add 1/4 cup of coconut sugar and bake in chocolate chips for a sweeter version.
  • Add fresh and dried herbs like rosemary and thyme.
  • Add in walnuts, pumpkin seeds, or slivered almonds for a nutty flavor.
  • Mix vegan butter, sugar, cinnamon together, and spread it over the bread

How To Make Oatmeal Bread

  1. In a small sauce pan, bring 1 cup of water to a boil. Add the oats, olive oil, and maple syrup. Once bubbling, stir and remove from heat.  Allow to cool for about 5 minutes.
  2. In a small dish, mix the 1 tablespoon of flaxmeal with 1 tablespoon of warm water.  It will form a thick paste.  Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, add the yeast and the warm water together.  Whisk until well combined and allow the yeast to sit for 5 minutes to ferment.
  4. Add the oat mixture into the large bowl with the yeast and mix well to make the wet ingredients. Stir in the dry ingredients: 2 cups flour and salt.  Add the flaxseed meal mixture as well.  Mix well with a wooden spoon, and add the remaining flour until a very thick dough forms.
  5. Grease 2 bread loaf pans, and divide the dough equally on the pans.  Allow the dough ball to rise in a warm draft-free space for 30 to 45 minutes, until doubled in size.
  6. Bake the loaves at 375 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes until the tops become golden brown and crisp. Remove loaf pans from the oven once finished baking. Cool bread on a cooling rack for at least 30 minutes before slicing, or until it’s room temperature.

What’s the best way to store bread?

I like to store a bread on my counter covered in plastic wrap or in a plastic bag. You could also keep leftover bread in an airtight container and refrigerate.
If you have an extra loaf of bread, add it to a freezer bag and freeze for up to 2 months!

How long does oat bread last?

This bread will last 4 days, but to keep it longer, you can freeze the loaf for up to 3 months.

What Equipment Do I Need For Baking Oat Bread?

You’ll need some basic baking equipment as well: a loaf pan set, a measuring cup for exact amounts of each ingredient, and mixing bowls. And also a small pan to make some oatmeal as the base.
