My mom is always telling me how good her bread is when she adds oatmeal. Well I finally tried it! And now I think EVERYONE should try it. The loaves came out so soft and even had a little more rise to them than my normal batches.
What I did:
To the basic bread recipe, I substituted 3 cups of rolled oats (not the quick kind) for some of the whole wheat flour. I left everything else the same. If you want your bread to really say "I'm oatmeal bread", just brush a little egg whites on top and sprinkle on some oats once you've made your loaves.
