Chocolate Buttered Oat Sourdough

Updated: Jun 8, 2021

How about chocolate with a touch of butter and oat for your sourdough? This recipe is a keeper, especially if you have children at home or you're a chocolate lover like me! Hope you enjoyed this recipe!

Friendly Tips: As a beginner baker, always practice and master the skill of basic country sourdough before moving on to a more complex sourdough bread making (e.g. inclusions, fancy flavours, etc).

My children love this!
