Soaked Apple Oatmeal Mini Loaves
  • 2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 1 medium apple, shredded
  • ⅓ cup sucanat, rapadura, or coconut sugar
  • 3 teaspoons aluminum-free baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1½ cups milk
  • 1 Tablespoon whey, buttermilk, kefir, or lemon juice
  • 3 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • ¾ teaspoon apple pie spice
  1. In a large bowl, combine the flours, oats, whey/buttermilk/kefir/lemon juice, and milk. Cover and set aside to soak 12-24 hours.
  2. When you are ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350*F. Add remaining ingredients and stir to combine well. Spoon into mini loaf pan, muffin tin, or loaf pan. If desired, top with a mixture of organic brown sugar, apple pie spice, and dried apple pieces.
  3. Bake for 40-50 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool in pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire rack to finish cooling. Yield: 4 mini loaves or 1 regular-sized loaf
If you have any apple cider, you can decrease the amount of milk in the soaking step to 1 cup and add ½ cup of apple cider with the remaining ingredients before baking.

If you are wrapping them up to give away, make sure loaves are completely cool before wrapping.
