#Breadmaker #Oat and Honey #Bread

When I mentioned on Facebook that I made Oatmeal Bread in our breadmaker and posted this photo, friends asked for the recipe.  So I thought I'd post it here in case anyone else would like to try it.  We make our own bread to avoid preservatives and plastic wrap that taints the taste of the bread.

This recipe came with our Oster Breadmaker.  I'm not a fan of wheat and we're trying to eat healthier. So we tried oats!

Oatmeal Bread

1 and 1/4 cups water
3 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
3/4 cups quick-cook oats
1 and 3/4 teaspoons salt
3 and 3/4 cups bread flour
2 tablespoons oat bran
2 tablespoons dry milk
2 teaspoons active dry yeast

1. Measure and add liquid ingredients to the bread pan.
2. measure and add dry ingredients (except yeast) to the bread pan.
3. Use your finger to form a well (hole) in the flour where you will pout the yeast.  Yeast must NEVER come into contact with a liquid when you are adding ingredients.  Measure the yeast and carefull pour it into the well.
4. Snap the baking pan into the breadmaker and close the lid.
5. Press "Select" button to choose the Basic setting.
6. Press the "Crust Color" button to choose light, medium or dark crust.
7. Press the "Start/Stop" button.

This breadmaker was a gift that I enjoy constantly.
Have a great "breadmaking" experience!

It is delicious. I had a slice for breakfast. It's moist with just enough texture. I can do this!
