Honey Strawberry Oat Bread

I always watch chick flicks and have sleepovers with my friend Dora, who is also a health nut. When she told me about making bread without sugar, I was admit I was skeptical but curious. I had never tried oat flour either, but it was always on my cooking bucket list. Needless to say, the bread turned out absolutely delicious, and the best part is I feel no guilt eating it whatsoever!

This our modified version, adapted from Allrecipes. We made a half batch but this is the full recipe (2 loaves)

Ingredients
2 1/2 cups oat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup oats
3/4 cup honey
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
2 cups fresh strawberries
2 cup chopped almonds

Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease two 8x4 inch loaf pans.

In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and oats.
In a large bowl, mix together honey, vegetable oil, eggs, and milk. Mix in flour mixture until just moistened. Stir in cranberries and walnuts.

Divide batter into prepared pans equally. Bake 40-45 minutes, or until a tester inserted in the center of the loaves comes out clean.
