I made this using Porridge Oats which is a mix of old fashioned oats, oat bran, flax seed and a few other woody good for you things. I still added the wheat germ and uses Splenda for the honey. It came out great, it rose beautifully, has a nice chewy thin crust and a soft, fluffy, delicious inside. This one is a keeper for sure.

I actually made this bread yesterday...and couldn't wait to make another one this morning! This bread is totally wonderful with a super texture and a taste that is so delish!. The only change I made was I used 1-1/2 tsp bread machine yeast instead of the regular yeast, and I added 2 Tbsp of wheat germ, I just love that in bread! I am always on the lookout for good bread bachine recipes, and this is certainly one of them! Thanks for posting Charmed, this will become a regular at my house!....Kitten:)

A really great bread. Wonderful taste and texture. Baked it in oven but made it in bread machine. Placed the dough in a 9x5 pan,baked at 375 degrees for 35 minutes, covering it with foil after 15 minutes. I did use the wheat germ. I plan to use this recipe over and over again. Thank you Charmed!

Wonderful bread. Great for sandwiches. I will make again. I used 2 TBSP olive oil and 2 tsp. yeast. Setting: white, 1.5 loaf, normal cycle with medium crust. I made turkey salad sandwiches with the bread. My husband looked at me and said, "Now that's good bread".

This recipe is so easy and so good. I get rave reviews every time I make it. It is the simplest bread machine recipe I have found.<br/>I use regular old fashioned oatmeal and all purpose flour with great results. I also "eyeball" the amount of honey added and I probably use a bit more than 2 Tbsp. I do not use wheat germ.

Great recipe. I did make a few changes but they were minor. I used coconut oil for the fat and chia seeds instead of wheat germ. Also added a bit of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. We LOVE this bread. I've made it 4 times in under 2 weeks. Best bread I have ever made in my machine!

This bread is delicious! It has both great crumb and chew. The flavor is amazing. I added a teaspoon of molasses for color and depth. This skinny girl in charge will make it again and again!

This makes a 1.5 lb loaf, so set your bread machine accordingly. I set mine to white bread 1.5lb loaf setting (couldn't find listed anywhere here, "bake on basic white 1" and "5 lb setting' doesn't really give accurate directions as every machine is different). I followed the recipe verbatim and it made a really nice soft bread with a slightly crispy thin crust. Will definitely be making this again, maybe with a little bit more wheat germ or try some flax seed.

Love this simple recipe! I have made it several times, always taking it out of the machine after the first rise. Then I flatten and fold, put covered in loaf pan for another hour to rise. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes and you have a PERFECT loaf every time! (...and they think I slaved all day!)
