How to make oats pav or oats buns– easy bread baking recipe -oats recipes

    Bread baking is really addictive. When you bake once, you feel like trying out more recipes. I had got a packet of bread flour which was lying in my pantry for a long time nearing the expiry date. My kids keep me so busy nowadays especially the one year old that I really don’t find to do anything exclusive apart from the everyday normal cooking. But then I decided to finish my bread flour before I have to trash the whole packet with a heavy heart.

So I first baked the cinnamon buns. Then a sandwich loaf. Then I made this buns with a remaining flour. I loved the use of oats in buns. I found the recipe in wikihow. I made pavbhaaji for dinner that day. It was a really delicious meal. You can also have look at my pavbhaji post where I have updated the pictures too.
