Cranberry-Walnut Oat Bread
Chewy, crunchy, and unbelievably satisfying, this awesome oat bread might just become your new favorite. It’s amazing toasted!
Baking with yeast makes my knees shake a little. For me, it is always hit or miss. I’m working on it. I WILL NOT LET YEAST BREADS DEFEAT ME. I won’t! It’s totally doable, and if you’re in the same boat as me (nervous Nelly), have confidence! We can do this!
Regardless of my ongoing battle with the stuff, when Red Star Yeast contacted me about their new product, Red Star Yeast Platinum Superior Baking Yeast–a yeast they call “forgiving” and “simple to use” I was all about it. They promised it would give me “professional results EVERY time.” And let me tell you–this oat bread with cranberries and walnuts tastes like something out of one of your favorite bakeries.
Red Star added dough improvers to make your bread turn out even more perfectly. They recommend it especially for whole grain dough which is fantastic because I prefer to make whole-grain breads any time possible.
Let’s just say I’m sold.

Oh…and that goodness that is spread on the oat bread? It’s a phenomenal cranberry butter that complements this bread perfectly. It has cinnamon and honey and it’s just incredible.
