    This recipe will work in a bread machine with a couple tablespoons of bread flour added. It doesn't rise as much which results in a dense, moist loaf which provides about 10 slices instead of 16. - 1/27/10

    To die for delicious, and ridiculously easy! I've never made bread before and this loaf turned out perfect. I made with rolled oats rather than instant with no ill effect that I could see. Thanks for sharing this great recipe, I'll def make it again! - 4/4/10

    I haven't bought bread in over a year, so as someone who frequently makes bread, this was a GREAT recipe! Easy and foolproof! Fabulous flavor. I added about 1/3 cup more water because I thought it was a bit too dry and dense. - 5/12/10

    I make bread (usually with machine) a couple of times a week, using mostly whole wheat flour. This will definitely be added to my bread recipe collection. Will probably add some dried cranberries, grated orange peel, cinnamon and nuts for a good breakfast/brunch bread. - 5/12/10

    Made it as described as well as with my ever present sour dough starter. Both are winners. Awesome, quick and easy. Cavet though, do not pour the boiling water, oats, salt and honey into the yeast slurry. Let it cool to about 100 F first, or it will kill the yeazst! - 11/14/11

    Helpful note: after mixing yeast with 1/4 cup of warm water add to the oat,salt, honey & water mixture this will "proof" the yeast. This will start the rising process. Mix & let sit until little bubbles start to rise then add to flour & mix. let rise with damp towel in a warm non drafty place - 4/11/13

    I am glad I read all the reviews before making. Like others, mine did not rise much and is very dense & moist. It is not a good bread for sandwiches (which I don't eat anyway), but is tasty accompaniment for soup, snack or meal. I did get 16 thin slices at 1-1.5 oz each. Will try rolls next time. - 12/29/12

    I doubled the recipe, then baked one after one rise as instructed, and punched the second one down and let it rise a second time, they were identical when baked, so the second rise didn't help make it a higher bread. I might try wheat gluten next time, great taste and texture. I love hearty bread! - 1/3/11

    While the taste was good, It is only good for snacking plain. The taste would not work well with sandwiches. It was also way to dense for a yeast bread. If I do make this again I will definitely increase the rise time to overnight. - 1/1/12

    I was so disappointed that the bread did not rise very much, resulting in dinky, dense slices. I think the boiling water/oatmeal mixture needs to cool before adding the yeast...I think the hot water killed it. - 10/24/10

    This bread is excellent! I made two batches today, one with 1/8 cup of ground flax seed in it, one as just the original recipe. I did find that I had to knead in about 1/3 of a cup of extra flour both times, but it is really humid today so that is probably why. Amazing bread both times! - 8/7/10

    Very simple recipe. Super tasty. I added a pinch of garlic salt and a little less salt. I also added more water to the oatmeal mix and used a tablespoon of raw natural honey in place of the 1/4c of honey. I didnt have any problem with the dough rising but it is a denser bread. It's a must try recipe - 3/11/14

  • The bread is delicious... Although it does not rise very much at all. I think if the recipe were doubled it would make a decent sized loaf. You do good to get 10 slices (servings) out of it, much less 16. I followed the instructions to a "T" but maybe I did something wrong? - 11/23/10
