Several posts ago, I mentioned that we were being given a second-hand bread maker. Well we were given one for Christmas, but it was brand new! Hooray! So far we’ve made at least half a dozen loaves though some didn't turn out the way we had hoped.
That cannot be said about the recipe below. It’s easy, delicious and has no added sodium. Bread products are a less obvious source of sodium with the average slice containing 160mg. And since most individuals will have two slices, that’s 320mg or 21% of your daily recommended intake – and that’s before you put anything between the bread!
Even if you don’t a have a medical reason to watch your sodium intake, it’s a good idea to do so for the following reasons:
1 cup + 1 tbsp water
1 tbsp skim milk powder
1.5 tbsp reduced calorie margarine
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp molasses
1.5 cups whole wheat bread flour
1/3 cup quick oats
1.5 cups all purpose whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon yeast
Note: Directions and baking time will vary depending on type of bread maker used.
Our machine took 3 hours 25 minutes to complete the bread.
