In a medium size mixing bowl add all the dry ingredients (oats, whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, pinch of salt) and mix well. Keep the dry mixture aside.
In a large mixing bowl, add milk, eggs, and vanilla essence, and mix well with an electric hand mixer or a spoon until the mixture is light and fluffy.
Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture and mix thoroughly.
Add in a few drops of lemon juice, mix well (lemon juice should not be added prior to this step otherwise the mixture might curdle).
Grease a loaf pan (9×3 inch, or your desired choice) with cooking oil spray for about 10 seconds and pour the batter. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the top appears golden brown. A knife or toothpick can be inserted in the middle to see if it comes out clean.
Once done, remove from the oven and let it cool on a baking rack.
Cut into slices and enjoy with your favorite drip or sandwich spread!
Chef's Tips: Do not skip salt and lemon juice as they are used to activate the baking soda. Your choice of nuts can be added to the batter for additional flavor and texture.
