Groats and Oats – Take 1

Groats and Oats – Take 1

I tried this recipe a while back and really enjoyed it, especially toasted with a bowl of oatmeal in the morning.  Thought the flavors complimented each other well.  Ever since then, have been wanting to try to put something together, and this is Take 1. 

Still some kinks to work out, but I’m happy with the first step!  Biggest thing is either lowering hydration or going back to KAF 100% WW.  Store was out of KAF WW, so I tried a brand that is milled locally.  Not NEARLY as thirsty and had trouble managing the dough.  Couldn’t get it to hold any shape no matter how much tension I put into it.

All that said, the flavor is exactly what I was going for.  May stick with the flours for Take 2, or I may try adding the groats and oats as an inclusion.  A few iterations to go before I settle in on a recipe…
