Very good bread. I made this by hand and accidentally added a full cup of oats. I also used 3 cups of King Arthur White Whole Wheat flour instead of half and half. I had to knead this for about 20 minutes (and it still could have stood a little longer but I was tired). It rose up nicely and baked into a beautiful, oatmeal-studded loaf. It is surprisingly moist. Thanks so much! **update - I meant to mention this last time - I don't have a bread machine, so I have to knead this by hand. It is VERY sticky. I probably add an additional cup of flour while I'm kneading - otherwise it gets stuck all over my hands and I have to scrape it off. Next time I will go ahead and add another 3/4 cup of flour before I start kneading and see how it goes.

This made a delicious loaf! I made this without a machine and changed a couple of things: I used about a tablespoon of honey instead of the sugar, used granary flour for the whole wheat and omitted the powdered milk. I've got a second loaf rising now it was so good! Thanks.

Pretty good bread. Not sure I'd make it again but it was alright.

I sub'd splenda for the sugar and applesauce for the oil as well as using all whole wheat pastry flour. I made a half loaf and then the other half of the dough into rolls, taking the rolls out of the oven after about 20 minutes. The bread turned out really moist with a crunchy crust--it was really great and a high fiber treat!

This was wonderful! I used white bread flour instead of all-purpose, and I didn't use any gluten. I cooked the whole thing in the bread machine (I wasn't sure, but I set it at 1.5 lb loaf, and used the whole wheat setting). Made great sandwich bread!

Great recipe! This one is a definite keeper! My 4 year old boy kept asking for more. This is much healthier than Wonder bread is for him. Thanks for the great recipe!

This bread recipe is excellent. As a nutritious alternative, I substituted 2 T. honey for the sugar and added 2 T. of wheat germ. I also baked it in my bread machine on the basic setting. Makes great toast! Thanks for the recipe.

This made a delicious loaf of bread. I was very apprehensive as to how it would turn out, as the ball of dough wasn't the usual texture that I am used to. I felt the water content could have been a bit more, but decided not to change anything. Well, it turned out really well. Didn't rise too much although I used instant yeast. Still it was light and delicious.
