comparing freshly milled and freshly flaked directly

Yesterday, I made four loaves of banana oat quick bread. Two loaves were completely traditional - store-bought white flour and old-fashioned oats. The other was all freshly milled soft white wheat and freshly flaked oats.

...And we prefer the freshly milled and freshly flaked and they worked beautifully. I didn't need to alter ANYTHING. 

When something tastes great and it's better for you. That is truly a win-win.
