Cheesy Spinach & Oats Swirl Buns

Baking, one of my favourite passion..i was a novice baker before an year and i can say honestly through blogsphere i learned many bakes..I love to bake my own breads at home, u can bake ur bread with many choose of healthy ingredients at home itself..I have prepared loads of breads or buns since i have started my blog and i rarely trashed few of my baking adventures..Recently i prepared this cheesy swirl buns with oats flour which is prepared at home with quick cooking oats, whole wheat flour and with some fresh spinach puree which i prepared with freshly bought spinach leaves, to spice this buns i used red chilli flakes, dry thymn leaves, dry parsley leaves, garlic powder, pepper powder and salt and made a swirl like bun with grated mozzarella cheese and some fried onions...This swirl buns tastes marvellous for snacks and while for dinner as prefect buns to have with soups and salads..We loved this cheesy swirl buns , which is quite an excellent, nourishing, filling as well as healthy buns... its such a delicious buns, my lil ones had this buns when they were still warm...




1+1/2cups Oats flour
2cups Whole Wheat Flour
1/2cup Spinach puree
1/4cup Olive oil
2tbsp Active dry yeast
1tsp Sugar
1tbsp Salt
1tsp Red chilly flakes
1/2tsp Dry Thymn leaves
1/4tsp Dry Parsley leaves
1/4tsp Pepper powder
1/2tsp Garlic powder
1cup Mozzarella cheese (grated) or any other cheese
1/2cup Fried Onions (store bought)
2tbsp Quick cooking oats

Combine the oats flour, whole wheat flour, red chilly flakes, dry thyme leaves, pepper powder, garlic powder, dry parsley leaves in a large bowl..meanwhile in a cup of luke warm water, add the active dry yeast, sugar and salt and let this mixture sit for 5 minutes, to get a foamy yeast...Add this foamy yeast ,olive oil and spinach puree to the flour and spice mixture and knead as dough until u get a soft and smooth dough..arrange this soft dough in a greased bowl and keep this bowl in a warm place for an hour with lid closed until the dough double their volume..



After an hour, take the bowl and knead again the dough, flatten them with a rolling pin as a large rectangular disc, spread the grated mozzarella cheese and fried onion equally over the dough and roll the dough to get a loaf like shape...With a sharp knife, cut the loaf as 8-10 medium sized pieces..line a baking sheet over a round baking pan and arrange this swirl buns over the baking sheet..meanwhile preheat the oven to 350F, springle the quick cooking oats over the swirl buns and arrange this round pan in the middle rack of the oven..Bake for 25-30minutes until u get a beautiful golden brown cheesy swirl buns...

This cheesy buns tastes too good if they are served warm..
