A bit heavy It weighed a ton! I don't know what I might have done wrong. I won't be keeping this recipe. Pros: Easy Cons: Too dense

How could this possibly be healthy with a whole cup of sugar in it? And I don't consider buttermilk healthy either. So I would substitute sugar for Xylotol and buttermilk for coconut oil and water.

One cup of brown sugar in a loaf of bread. Who are you kidding. That is not healthy.

You have to be careful not to underbake this, I had a tunnel in the center. Otherwise it was tasty and not too dry. A good way to get your oats everyday! You might also try the Honey Oat Quick Bread recipe.
