Cilantro and Garlic Oat Bread #BreadBakers

I wanted to bake a flavored bread loaf from a long time..... When, I say long time, it really means a very long time... Well, I had this desire from around a year.. But, somehow I was never able to do it... When I learnt this month's theme is whole grain, I knew what I am going to bake, as I have already baked it in my mind, lot of times....

I actually wanted to make Quinoa bread.... Right from starting everything was working perfectly fine... But, don't know where did I went wrong.. After coming out of Oven, the bread went down from the center... It was also tasting as it is half cooked, but I did bake it for 40-45 minutes, and the bread was brown in color, when I took it out from Oven... I need to again bake the same bread, and see what actually made my bread to sink in center..

So, I decided to shift for another plan, and bake bread with another Whole grain- Oats.... This one worked out perfect.... I didn't refer any recipe for this one, just worked on my instincts. And I am glad I did, as it turn out to be perfect...

#BreadBakers is a group of bread loving bakers who get together once a month to bake bread with a common ingredient or theme. You can see all our of lovely bread by following our Pinterest board right here. Links are also updated after each event on the #BreadBakers home page. We take turns hosting each month and choosing the theme/ingredient. This month's host is Cali Cuisine.. You can check out some delicious recipe in her blog... She chose Whole Grain as our theme this month...

I'm so glad to see cilantro in a bread. It's something I don't see often at all.

Very flavorful and delicious looking bread.
Love the use of oat flour in your bread. It looks delicious!
I'm so glad I'm not one of those "cilantro tastes like soap" people because then I'd never be able try this wonderful bread. So many good thing–especially garlic!-in one loaf. Thanks for sharing it! And I also had trouble baking with quinoa, so you're not alone.
