Savoury Oatmeal Buns

I was planning to prepare a bread with quick cooking oats and finally i turned them as savoury buns with dry parsley leaves, pepper powder,olive oil, fried onions and salt with quick cooking oats..I prepared oat flour with quick cooking oats by grinding them and i used oat flour with a cup of whole wheat flour and half a cup of all purpose powder..This Savoury buns tastes delicious with cheese spread, lettuce leaves and tomato slices for dinner or else suits prefectly with salted butter and a cup of juice for snacks or for breakfast..I got 8buns and they vanished when its still little bit warm, we enjoyed having with cheese spread for our dinner along with tomato soup.Oat flour adds lovely flavor to breads and because of certain natural preservative in the oats themselves, it improves their shelf life. Oats contains no gluten, which is needed for bread to rise, so it must be mixed with a gluten containing flour such as wheat, thats the reason i added whole wheat flour and all purpose flour to prepare this savoury buns. If your recipe is for a quick bread, no addition of other flours is necessary.U can also prepare this oat flour by grinding even the rolled oats..When ever u prepare ur parathas, just add a ladle full of this oat flour and prepare ur parathas or rotis..While preparing this buns, i didnt sieve the oat flour i used directly the grounded flour with wheat flour and all purpose flour..Do prepare this healthy buns and let me know friends...



3cups Quick Cooking oats
1cup Whole wheat flour
1/2cup All purpose flour
2tbsp Active dry yeast
1/2tsp Sugar
1tsp Salt
1cup Luke warm water
1tsp Pepper powder
1tsp Dry parsley leaves
2tbsp Fried onions
3+1/2tbsp Olive Oil

Grind 2cups of quick cooking oats as fine powder, meanwhile add the active dry yeast in luke warm water with salt and sugar, mix it well and let them stay for 5 minutes until the yeast turns foamy..Take the grounded oat flour, quick cooking oats (leave 2tbsp aside for topping),whole wheat flour, all purpose flour,pepper powder, parsley leaves, fried onions and add gradually the foamy yeast and 3tbsp of olive oil..turn everything as soft dough, grease a bowl with olive oil, place the dough in a bowl and keep in warm place for 2 hours until the dough double the volume..

After 2 hours, punch the dough and roll 8 balls from the dough..preheat the oven at 350F..roll the balls in ur palms and give a press over the dough..roll the top of the bun over the 2tbsp of quick cooking oats and place them in a baking sheet lined over a baking tray...bake this savoury buns for 25-30minutes in medium rack until they turns golden brown..

Serve hot or warm with any cheesy spread or veggies..

Hi, I have been looking for ways to use more oats in our diet and this is an awesome idea. I have a question - Do you know if we can use oat bran instead of powdered quick cooking oats?

Priya said... Reply To This Comment
