This Molasses Oat Bread is so good straight from the oven and slathered with butter for breakfast or with coffee anytime.   The whole wheat flour and walnuts give it a nutty flavor you will enjoy.

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 1/4 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup molasses (I used sorghum molasses. You can use whatever you have)
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 egg
2 tablespoons oil (I used Canola)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup walnut pieces
In a large bowl using a whisk mix together the whole wheat flour, all-pourpose flour, oats, salt and baking powder.   In a smaller bowl whisk together the buttermilk, egg, oil and molasses.  Combine the two bowls and mix well with spoon.  Spray a 9 x 4 bread pan and add dough. Sprinkle the walnuts on top of the dough.   Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 45 – 50 minutes. Let cool 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from pan.   Makes 1 loaf.  Enjoy!
