This Easy Bread contains just 3 ingredients, is vegan, flourless, yeast-free, gluten-free and requires no kneading. It’s an oatmeal bread that is as simple as making porridge. The oats come together to form a dense bread with a nice crust – toasted or not, this bread will definitely taste great with anything.
No need to go out and buy ingredients because you’ve probably already got them in your kitchen cupboard, and you only need 3 in total. No fuss, no kneading, no yeast, gluten-free, vegan, sugar-free and if you know how to make porridge then this Porridge Bread will be a piece of cake to rustle up.
When I made this I couldn’t believe how bread-like it was. The dough looks more like stodgy porridge (because it is!) than typical bread dough, but don’t worry, it comes out of the oven completely transformed. Dense, yet moist, fluffy and absolutely bready. The seeds add a nice subtle bite to it all as well as some extra nutrients.
Questions about Porridge Bread
What is porridge bread? Porridge bread is a loaf of bread made from oats, milk and baking soda. It’s basically baked porridge. The baking process allows it to become more rigid and set than normal porridge which is more creamy and smushy.
How does porridge bread taste? Porridge bread tastes like oats, but the texture is very much like a dense, moist rye bread. The addition of seeds and nuts also give it a more complex flavour and texture.
Is porridge bread like normal bread? Porridge bread is very similar to rye bread in terms of texture and appearance. It is nothing like the normal bowl of porridge or oatmeal you would have for breakfast.
