The recipe cost me 15 to 17 cents per loaf. This does not include power. If I include power I think ti came out to 20 to 23 cent per loaf back in 2005 when I got the machine. So we are talking cheap here... very cheap. Now note: I by ALL ingredients in bulk at Sam's Club. That means I buy 50 pounds of flour (Used up in 3 months) at a time and 5 gallons of olive oil at a time (used up in 5 months).
The reason I make oatmeal bread is because oatmeal is a whole grain and it the cheapest whole grain you can buy!
Oatmeal bread (2 pound loaf)
- 1 cup oatmeal (Quick Oats)
- 3 cups flour
- pinch salt
- 1 cup dried milk
- 1/8 cup sugar (you can sub honey or molasses but will not get as big a loaf due to it not rising as well)
- 2 table spoons olive oil
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1 packet of yeast (or if you buy yeast in bulk like me 1/2 table spoon)
