*This recipe makes 2 loaves of Oatmeal bread

  • 2 C. water
  • 1 c. quick-cooking oats
  • 3 T. margarine
  • 1 pkg. active dry yeast
  • 1/3 C. warm water
  • 1/2 tsp. honey
  • 1/3 C. packed brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 tsp. salt
  • 4-3/4 to 5-1/4 cups bread flour
  1. Cook the oats, 2 cups water, and margarine for 1 minute.  Cool to lukewarm.  
  2. Dissolve yeast in warm water and honey. (The honey helps the yeast to bloom).
  3. Add cooled oat meal mixture to yeast mixture. Then add  sugar, salt and 4 cups of bread flour (1 cup at a time).  
  4. Knead in the rest of flour to form a stiff dough. 
  5. Oil a large bowl and turn bread dough in bowl to coat.   Cover and let rise 1 hour or until doubled in size.  (Tip: I cover the large bowl with plastic wrap and place in an oven that I heated to 250 degrees, turned off, and then waited for about 15 minutes before I placed the bowl in the oven). 
  6. Punch down, cut in half for 2 loaves of  bread or cut into 18 rolls. 
  7. Place in greased bread pan for bread or greased cookie sheet for rolls.  Cover and let rise on counter for about 30 minutes.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
