Oat Bran Bread

Adapted from Whole Grain Gourmet website

This bread is packed with nutrients. An ounce of oat bran has 6 grams of protein, 150 milligrams of potassium, 20% of the RDA of vitamin B1, and 8% of the RDA of iron. It is also very satisfying, so enjoy a large piece for breakfast and you won't find yourself needing to snack much in between meals.
