1 cup water 1 Tbsp water
1 egg 4 ½ tsp vegetable oil or olive oil
¼ cup instant oats or regular rolled oats 1 ½ cups flour from 9 grain cereal
1 ½ cups white flour or bread flour
1 – 1 ½ Tbsp vital wheat gluten (optional, but will help the dough rise as it will be heavy)
¼ cup sugar (or less to your liking) 1 ½ tsp salt
1 Tbsp active dry yeast
Place ingredients in bread machine, using either the order given in your bread machine manual or start with wet ingredients first and add dry ones last, ending with the yeast on top.
Select basic bread setting if letting the breadmaker bake it. Or select dough setting to form the bread or rolls yourself.
If dough cycle was selected, form the dough in desired shapes and place in greased pans. This recipe makes about 15 rolls, 2 medium loaves of bread or 1 large loaf and a few extra rolls.
Cover dough with plastic wrap or flour sack towel and let rise in warm, draft-free spot. About 25 minutes for rolls, or 40 minutes for bread.
Make sure to preheat oven to 350 degrees about 10-15 minutes before rolls or bread is ready to bake.
Bake rolls 12-15 minutes, bread 10 minutes.
For a loaf that isn’t quite as heavy use 1 cup 9 grain cereal and 2 cups flour and even substitute white flour for the oats. The more white flour you use, the lighter your bread will be and you won’t need quite as much yeast or vital wheat gluten.
Note: Instructions apply for use in a breadmaker but it can be prepared in the traditional way as well.
