Sometimes you actually try too hard to make your recipe guilt free. My whole wheat pull apart cheesy garlic bread recipe came to life because I wanted bread which had more fibers than the regular bread hence I decided to add porridge in this recipe.




I was actually apprehensive of the fact that adding porridge to whole wheat garlic bread recipe could become party spoiler and maybe the bread will not rise properly and might come out too flat and hard.

Keeping my fingers crossed, and with a firm determination to not peek through oven glass to check the progress of bread baking I said to myself “What the hell Vivek – Can’t you be patient for 30 min and wait for the result?”

Those 30 minutes of 1st bake for my Whole wheat pull apart cheesy garlic bread were tense for me like a school kid nervously waiting for his board results.

The moment I wore my oven gloves and pulled out the baking tray from oven, I just smiled and said to myself “man we cracked this 10/10”
