Nice earthy taste but soft enough that kids will love it. Use quick-cooking oats for lighter bread, or regular rolled oats for a chewier texture. We use a stoneware bread pan. For the final rise (outside the bread machine,) I place the loaf on the middle rack of our oven, and place a 9" x 9" baking dish filled with hot tap water underneath it. The baking itself is done on our oven's second-lowest rack.
