Oats, this wholegrain is one among my most favourite, i have tried huge number of dishes out of this incredible grain. They are absolutely versatile and one can make varieties of foods and bakes with this grain. I have tried baking breads with Oats and today's bread is one among those trials. Actually this bread is a sweet bread, this bread is simply prepared with oats as main ingredient along with bread flour with wheat bran. The addition of wheat bran makes this bread more rich in dietary fiber.You can just have this bread for your breakfast without any fuss, since this bread is already sweetened you doesnt even need any spread to have with it.

After pizzas, my kids just love focaccia. This Italian bread is prepared with yeasted dough and can be topped as much as like pizzas. I love to add more veggies as toppings when its comes to focaccia, however sometimes i wont hesitate a second to sprinkle some grated cheese over it. This time when i prepared the dough for the focaccia, i know i will go for both red and green bellpeppers as the topping with mozzarella cheese. Instead of sauting the bellpeppers, i just chopped them as tiny bites,trust me they gets well cooked while baking. Focaccia topped with bellpeppers came out extremely well with wonderful flavors. When served with a bowl of soup,this bread makes a filling dinner.One can have this focaccia simply with the soup or else with a cream cheese spread. However we had this focaccia without any spread for our dinner few days back.
