Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dissolve the yeast in the warm water and proof for a few minutes while you get the rest ready.
  2. In a pan, place the water and salt and bring to a boil; add the rolled oats, but do not boil.
  3. Stir in and cool to lukewarm the brown sugar and butter.
  4. When lukewarm, stir in the yeast mixture and mix well.
  5. Add the flour gradually until the dough is a good consistency to knead.
  6. Knead 100 times.
  7. Let rise in a greased bowl until double (about 1 1/2 hours).
  8. Punch down and divide in half.
  9. Put each half in a greased bread pan.
  10. Rise again for about 1 hour or until almost double in size.
  11. Bake at 375 degrees for 40-45 minutes, putting foil on top after about 25-30 minutes to prevent it browning too much.

I made this bread but substituted 2 cups of wheat flour for 2 cups of white flour. My bread rose nicely the first time, but once I had shaped the loaves and placed them in pans, it did not rise as much during the second rise as I had expected. Once baked, it made a dense, chewy bread. It tasted delicious, but not as light as I had hoped. Perhaps it is because of the wheat flour. Before this, I had only made white bread.

Wow, this was so good! I was looking for a simple recipe for oatmeal bread and this fit the bill perfectly. It tastes wonderful with honey or even by itself! I halved the recipe, used an 8x4 pan and ended up with a nice sized loaf. I used only about half a tablespoon of butter and about 2 tablespoons extra brown sugar. I toasted my oatmeal beforehand just because I like the taste it brings out when toasted, but I will try it next time without doing that just to see if there actually is a difference when using it this way. I definitely will be making it again since my family has already requested for me to make it again! Thanks for the delicious recipe!
