Ingredients for Homemade Country Oatmeal Bread Recipe

1 cup oats
2 cups water

3 tablespoons oil
2 packages yeast (or about 2 tablespoons)
1/3 cup very warm water
pinch of sugar
5 cups flour

Directions for Homemade Country Oatmeal Bread Recipe

Boil water and pour over oats. Let cool until warm, not hot. Add brown sugar and oil. This is what it looks like after oats have soaked and before stirring in brown sugar and oil.

Dissolve yeast in 1/3 cup water and sprinkle with a pinch of sugar. Let raise and add to the rest of the mixture. Stir in salt.

Add flour and knead by hand until dough is smooth. It really is important to knead by hand! It really doesn’t take much kneading – usually less than 5 minutes, just until dough is smooth and flour is completely mixed in. This creates a fluffy and moist product. And yes, I just said moist. Here is what it looks like post kneading:

Place dough in same bowl, cover with a tea towel, and let raise for 1 hour. Here’s our beauty, post raising:

Grease bread pans and sprinkle with oats.

Divide dough and form into two loaves. Place in bread pans and let raise again until dough is about ½-1 inch above bread pan.

Bake at 350F for 35 minutes. You may need to cover the tops with foil before the time is up to prevent burning. Butter tops after baking, while still hot.
