So the kids have been back to school for a couple of weeks now and we are still trying to get back into the swing of things after summer vacation. We are finding the morning routines in particular awfully difficult to get back on track again. One of the big things I've been working on is having quick and easy breakfast ideas for the kids that are ready to go, where they can be independent enough to heat, toast, pour, or spread something without me hearing my name being called over and over again.
My kids though, much like me, prefer a little variety day-to-day. They don't want to just have yogurt, cereal, or fruit for breakfast. So on the weekends, I'm getting back into the routine of making a big batch of pancakes that I can freeze, which they now know how to re-heat. I've also been making a lot of muffins and bread, whether it's citrus or banana loaves (which Miss M absolutely loves) or my latest, fresh gluten-free bread for the little man.
The best part about this bread (besides being delicious with a little jam on top), is that there is no yeast, no kneading, and is made in under an hour. Because we all know I'm all about quick and easy.
And we are blessed to have a friend who, when she drops her daughter off some mornings to our house before she goes to work, she also leaves a dozen fresh eggs from her chicken coop. There's nothing that I love more than fresh eggs in the morning, and paired with freshly baked bread and a side of tomatoes, mushrooms, asparagus, and potatoes, I can't think of a better way to start the day.
- 2 cups plain gluten-free flour
- 1 cup Bob’s Red Mill gluten-free old-fashioned rolled oats (plus extra for topping)
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 12oz plain yogurt (2 small 6oz tubs)
- 1 large egg
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1/4 cup honey (plus extra for brushing over the top)
- 3/4 cup reduced-fat milk
Preheat the oven to 375F.
Spray a loaf pan with non-stick baking spray, and I always line the bottom with parchment paper too.
In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
In a separate medium-sized bowl whisk the egg, then add in the oats, yogurt, oil, and honey, and then gently stir through the milk.
Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the wet ingredients, and gently stir together with a wooden spoon until combined, but don't over mix.
Pour the bread mixture into the pan and bake for approximately 45 minutes. I started checking it at 30 minutes, and it ended up taking right on 45 minutes, but I'm always paranoid about over-cooking or burning baked goods. It's ready when you pop a wood skewer in and it comes out clean.
Set the bread aside to cool on a wire rack and then brush it with honey and top with the extra oats.
