Number of Servings: 16

Ingredients

    1 7/8C hot tap water
    3 teaspoons yeast
    1.5 T honey
    1.5C white flour
    1.5C wheat flour
    1.5C rolled oats
    2.75 teaspoons salt

    large loaf pan


    TIP: Use a serrated knife to score the slice marks on top of the bread when it is a whole loaf, to make portioning easier later. Make one slit in the center, then divide each side in half, etc. until you get all your slices.

Tips

This bread is a bit higher calorie than store-bought, but it's very high in whole grains (you can replace the white flour with more WW, if you like) with very low fat. It is also very economical - I use a slice with butter INSTEAD of high sugar breakfast cereal, it's much cheaper and better for you. You can have 1 slice of this bread with butter, along with an egg, for about 200 calories. A breakfast with lots of whole grains and 12g of protein will keep you going until lunchtime!


Directions

1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the hot water, honey and yeast. Allow to sit about 5 minutes until creamy and frothy.

2. Add the remaining ingredients, and stir well. The dough will be very wet, and you won't be able to knead it - add more water if the dough is too dry.

3. Spray a large (3x5x9) loaf pan with cooking spray. (I use a Pampered Chef Stoneware pan. If you have a standard small metal grocery store pan, use 2 and divide the dough between them)

4. Scrape the dough into the sprayed pan, smooth with the back of the spoon and set in a warm place for 30 minutes (the front of the stove-top while the oven is heating works well). You don't need to worry about doubling or punching-down or anything - just set the timer for 30 min.

5. Heat the oven to 350 while the bread as rising.

6. Bake a heavy stoneware pan for 40 minutes, thinner metal pans (especially if they are only half full) will need less time - start at 25 minutes then check.

7. The bread is done when it is beginning to brown around the edges and pull away from the pan. Pop it out onto a rack to cool. Try to wait 30 minutes before slicing... but I can never wait ;-)
