I will admit to being extremely exhausted, but in the best possible way. It’s a little rough adjusting to the 9-5 schedule when you’re used to 11-4; but like I said, it’s a good kind of tired. I have an absolutely wonderful group of students who are getting into some amazing discussions about online identity and community and it looks like we are going to have a great session this summer!
With that said, let’s get straight to the focus of today’s post: Buttermilk Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Bread.
Your Truly is exhausted. Yours Truly has no time/no motivation to make breakfast when I stumble out of bed in the morning and run over to work. But I do have time to whip up this easy breakfast bread on Sunday afternoon to enjoy all week long!
You’ve got plenty of chocolate chips for a bit of sweetness and the buttermilk adds a moist and chewy texture to this hearty oatmeal bread.
Oh, and did I mention browned butter?
Yeah, there’s plenty of that all up in this bread as well.
If your weeks have been a bit harried, or it feels to warm to turn the oven on during the day, try whipping up this Buttermilk Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Bread one night to enjoy for days. It comes together in no time and is sure to be a major crowd-pleaser.
That, and it is absolutely divine when it’s dunked into your morning cup of coffee.
Alright folks: that’s all I have for you today. For now I plan to finish out my first week of teaching and then sleep for
the entire weekend a bit. I’ll be back on Tuesday with a recipe for a festive Greek Chicken Salad, so be sure to check back first thing that morning!
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup brown butter*
- 1 egg
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 cup mini (or regular) chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray one 9×5 inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
- In a large bowl, combine flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix until everything is well blended.
- In a separate, smaller bowl, whisk together brown butter, egg, and buttermilk. Pour this mixture over the flour/oat mixture and stir with a large wooden spoon until just combined (a few streak of flour are ok!).
- Fold in chocolate chips, then pour mixture into the prepared loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes, or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean.
- Let cool in pan for 10 minutes before carefully removing to finish cooling on a wire rack.
