Lisa's Oat Bread- WW Friendly Recipe

I adapted the original Grace's Oat Bread recipe to make a loaf that suits my personal taste and texture preferences.  This oat bread is WW friendly, especially if you have oats, eggs, and non-fat Greek yogurt as your zero-point foods.  Just click the link below the recipe and it will take you to WW (must log in) and calculate how many points it is on your WW Personal Points plan.

I thought the original recipe had too much yogurt in it for my liking.  I've dabbled in making gluten-free bread since I have Celiac disease and knew that xanthan gum is needed in gluten-free recipes since there is no gluten.  So I started adding xanthan gum to the original recipe and liked the results.  (This recipe is gluten-free if you use gluten-free oats.) Since eggs are free for me on WW Personal Points, I played around with the ingredients by using less yogurt and more eggs.  I also whipped the egg whites during my experiments to see if that would make a lighter loaf, but in my opinion, it didn't really help.  So I no longer do that step.

I hope you like this revamped recipe as much as I do. Page Title

Lisa's Oat Bread


4 cups of rolled oats

2 teaspoons of baking powder

1/2 teaspoon of salt

1 teaspoon of xanthan gum

2 eggs

1 cup of non-fat plain Greek yogurt

Everything But The Bagel Seasoning (optional)

1) Preheat oven to 350° F

2) Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl.

3) Add eggs and yogurt and mix thoroughly, working the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.

4) When the mixture is totally mixed and it's holding together, press the mixture into a greased loaf pan. I use cooking spray. Make sure the edges are pressed down to avoid excessive browning. Sprinkle with the Everything Seasoning.

5) Place in the oven on the middle rack and bake for 40 minutes or until brown around the edges.

6) Turn the loaf out on a cooling rack and let cool completely before slicing. Slice into 16 pieces about 1/4" thick.

7) Keep refrigerated and your loaf will last about 5 days or so.

I found a smaller loaf pan at Walmart that works well for this.  You can find it here.  The larger the pan, the shorter your loaf will be.
