With St. Patrick's Day right around the corner, I thought I would try this brown soda bread. This bread is easy to make and pretty much irresistible to eat!
makes 16 slices ( 3 points+)
- 2-½ c. white whole wheat flour
- ½ c. all-purpose flour
- ½ c. old-fashioned rolled oats
- 2 T. brown sugar
- 1 T. wheat germ
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- ½ tsp. salt
- 2 c. low-fat buttermilk
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
Preheat oven to 325 and spray a 9x5 inch loaf pan with nonstick spray.
Combine the first 8 ingredients in a large bowl ( through salt).
Combine buttermilk with egg. Stir into dry mixture until just blended. Spoon into prepared pan.
Bake for 60-65 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Invert bread onto a wire rack and cool completely.
