Oat Milk Cookbook Review

The Oat Milk Cookbook from Kim Lutz is filled with more than 100 delicious, dairy free, vegan recipes. Oat milk is a delicious creamy alternative to cow’s milk, has amazing flavor and has an impressive nutrient dense profile. If you are looking for a milk alternative, oat milk is definitely a winner in my book!

I was intrigued to review this cookbook as I had never actually tried oat milk and I was intrigued by the challenge of making homemade oat milk (IT WAS SO EASY!). If making homemade oat milk seems daunting to you – well first, it really was SO easy and I don’t even have a high powered fancy blender – BUT you can also use store bought oat milk (I have used both to make this oat milk bread recipe).

This oat milk cookbook contains so many delicious recipes all made with oat milk! There is even a section on creating your own oatmilk coffeehouse complete with oat milk baked goods. Such a fun brunch at home idea! Here are some other recipes that caught not only my eye but my daughters too:

Honestly, I never realized how delicious and creamy oat milk was until I made it for myself! What an eye opening dairy free creamy revelation!

How to Make Oat Milk Bread

If you are new to making bread, this bread is really easy to make! I did not even need to proof the yeast and it turned out great.

If you plan to use homemade oat milk for this bread, you will need to make the oat milk first. Oat milk is very easy to make! Soak oat and then blend with filtered water. Filter with cheesecloth or a nut milk bag and you have creamy, fresh oat milk, that’s it! I did not even use a high powered blender and it turned out amazing.

Next combine your warm water, oat milk, yeast and salt in a bowl. The recipe does not call for warming up your oat milk, but since my oat milk was cold, I did warm up both the water and oat milk to 110 degrees.

Mix in your flour and then cover your bowl with a dish cloth and let sit in a warm spot in your house. In the spring and summer, in my house this is near a window. In the winter when it is grey and cloudy in West Michigan, I often have to turn on my fireplace and set the bowl a small distance away for any bread dough to rise.

Your oat milk bread dough will need to double in size! This should take about 2 hours. After the bread dough has doubled, scoop it into a loaf pan (no kneading!) and bake!

How to Serve and Store Oat Milk Sandwich Bread

My kids devour this bread fresh out of the oven while it is warm! They love it with some vegan butter. It would also make a great breakfast item! My husband loves it with peanut butter and jam.

I took this bread to gatherings with friends and we served it as a dinner bread (also because for some reason even though I don’t eat gluten, I have become known as the bread gal and always bring fresh bread!) All the kids ate so much of the homemade bread, they were too full for dessert! In fact, one kid, after first crying out, wait, Ms. Sarah you didn’t bring garlic bread with you this time?! Well, he had a change of heart when we sliced the bread and then asked for the biggest piece. Oh that makes my heart happy!

Some other ways to enjoy this oat milk bread include: chickpea sandwich, vegan grilled cheese, avocado toast or even make it into croutons!

I learned the hard way that this bread is best ate fresh within a few days, especially if you make this dairy free bread during the summertime. If you plan to have this bread more than 3 days, I would store it in the refrigerator and then use it for toast. Ours fresh oat milk bread turned sour after a few days sitting on our countertop in a covered container. Fresh bread is best ate fresh!

I hope you get the chance to make oat milk and then make this oat milk sandwich bread. Your family will love it!

    1. Can you make this with gluten free flour?

    2. Carrie Friedrich

      We absolutely loved this bread! One of the best recipes I’ve ever done! Huge loaf. Light and fluffy with crusty outside. Pinned this recipe and printed it out! Thank you!

    3. Is it normal for the dough to be quite runny?

    4. I’ve made this bread a couple of times now and I love it! Do you know if any other milks would work? Almond, for example. Thank you!

      • Hi Linda! Thanks for making the bread and so glad you love it! It has not been tested with other milk so I can’t say for sure, but if you try let us know!

    5. I have made this recipe a couple times now and have needed to add some extra flour. Were your cups packed a little?
