DIRECTIONS

  • In a small bowl, combine 3/4 cup warm water with yeast. Let stand until yeast is dissolved and begins to bubble, about 5 minutes.
  • Place the yeast mixture in your mixer (if you have one large enough for this recipe), or in a large bowl. Add the additional water, oats, honey, oil and salt. Mix well to combine.
  • Gradually add in the flours, mixing/kneading well, until a soft dough is formed. Knead another 5 minutes, adding small quantities of flour, until the dough feels like an ear lobe.
  • Place in a large, oiled bowl, turning dough to coat, and cover with a damp towel. Plase in a warm place and let rise until doubled in size, about one hour.
  • Punch down the dough, divide into 6 pieces (or more ifyou are making rolls) and shape into loaves or braid or do whatever you do with your challah dough.
  • Place on greased pans (I prefer using parchment paper, ungreased), and brush with beaten egg. Sprinkle with seeds or extra oats.
  • Bake at 350F for about 35 minutes for loaves, or 20+ minutes for rolls.
