  5. Heat oven to 375ºF.
  6. Bake 30-40 minutes or until loaves sound hollow when tapped. Brush with melted butter. Remove from pans. Cool completely.

Recipe Tips

Old-fashioned rolled oats are made by steaming and then flattening into flakes by rolling. They are re-rolled to make quick-cooking oats. Old-fashioned and quick-cooking oats can generally be used interchangeably in recipes. Old-fashioned oats will add more texture, but they both add moistness and a nutty flavor to breads.

Recipe Comments and Reviews


I love bread and this one did not disappoint. Slightly sweet and a little more dense than most breads. I do think someone who has never made bread from scratch before would have a little trouble with this recipe; you will use a lot of flour when you knead it to get it to the right texture.


It had a good taste but was to dense for us.
