One of my favorite ingredients in baking is oat. I had muffin, cake, rolls and bars made with oat. Did you notice that I'm obsessed with bread baking too. When checking a new recipe on the net, I just can't resist to visit KAF since most of their recipes showed up and really to my liking. They are fail proof and exceptionally good.
This recipe also adapted from their site but with slight adjustments. Have baked half of them using muffin pan instead of a loaf. Despite all the changes, they turned out fantastic and full nutty flavor of oat.
