Bread Machine Oatmeal Bread

"This is a very nice, basic oatmeal bread for your bread machine that I do make fairly often. The ingredients are simple, and great for those avoiding dairy products, since it's made with water. I think you'll like it. NOTE: I never tried it with wheat germ, but I'd bet it would be great! Baking time will vary based on your machine."

Questions & Replies

  1. I'm new to this bread machine thing and clearly need help. See picture. I've tried to make this twice and it doesn't seem to work. I have a brand new jar of yeast so I don't think it's that but maybe I'm wrong? I use the yeast dispenser on the top of the machine, should I not use that and put it directly into the mix? HELP! It does smell amazing and doesn't taste bad but it sure is ugly and short :)

  2. My very good friend did me a favor and all she would like in return is a couple of loaves of oatmeal bread. I said of course. But none have come out right in my bread machine. too dense...;too raw...bland. I would love to try this recipe, but only have original old fashioned oats from the Q people. Can I use this type of oatmeal?
  3. I'm fairly new to this bread making lark.... could someone tell me if would be ok to use wholegrain rolled oats instead of quick cook oats in this recipe? And if so, would I use the same amount?
  4. I guess that the nutritional information is for the entire bread and not per slice?


  1. I will be making this bread on a regular basis! One of the things I love most about this bread is that the crust isn't super hard. (I bake all my bread in the bread machine on "light crust", but it almost always comes out very hard.) I didn't have wheat germ, but added 1 tbsp of golden flax seed - DELICIOUS!!
  2. I baked the bread yesterday in my new bread maker ! It was set for 3:10 minutes I removed it 7 minutes before it was done . This is my first bread and it was awesome .. I substitue 1/3 cup for whole wheat flour instead of the bread flour . Substitute 1 table wheat germ for ground flax seed . I added solid coconut oil instead of butter and rolled oat . Seriously the texture was amazing just like the store bought ...without the preservative . Try it
  3. 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".
  4. 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.
  5. 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:)


  1. I live in Colorado and needed to experiment with tweaks for the elevation and dry climate. I halved the yeast and it came out great! I also used coconut oil, rolled oats instead of quick, and replaced 2/3 cup of bread flour with whole wheat and it yielded a hearty, chewy texture.
  2. Molasses instead of honey
  3. 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!
  4. This was an excellent bread! I do not have abm so I kneaded the dough by hand and let it rise two times. I did make some substitutions- brown sugar instead of the honey, flax seed instead of the wheat germ, and added a combination of soy flour, whole wheat, semolina, and unbleached white flour. I am definitely going to make this again! Everyone loved it. ;)
  5. just pulled this out of the oven and it's very good. i always make my recipes lighter, so i substituted apple sauce for the butter and used whole wheat bread and gluten. very good and easy. thanks
