    2 1/2 cups buttermilk
    2 cups rolled oats
    1/4 cup honey
    4-5 cups all purpose flour
    2 Tbsp butter, cut into small pieces
    2 tsp salt
    2 tsp instant yeast

    2 Tbsp butter
    1 Tbsp honey
    oats for garnish


(My nutritional info is calculated using 2 1/2 cups 2% milk and 2 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice in place of the buttermilk)

Warm the buttermilk in the microwave or a pan on the stove until luke warm. Stir in the oats and honey, then set aside while you gather the rest of the ingredients. Combine 4 cups flour, salt, yeast and butter in the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with the dough hook. Add in the oats and buttermilk mixture, and mix on low until a rough ball forms, adding flour as necessary. You should have a soft, dense dough that is slightly tacky, but not sticky.

Put into a greased bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Set aside in a draught-free place until doubled in size, about 1 to 2 hours. Grease (2) 8 x 4 loaf pans. Divide the dough into 2 equal pieces. On a lightly floured counter, press each piece into a rectangle about 5 x 8. Starting on the shorter end, roll up the dough one section at a time, using your thumbs to pinch the seam closed after each roll. Pinch the final seam closed, then gently rock the loaf to even it out do not taper the ends. Transfer the dough to the prepared pans. Ensure the loaf touches both ends of the pan to ensure an even rise. Cover loosely with plastic wrap or a clean dishtowel and set aside to rise a second time, until the dough is doubled in size and cresting the top of the pans, about 1-1 hours.

Preheat the oven to 375 F.

Melt the remaining butter, stir in the honey and brush the tops of both loaves gently, then sprinkle a few oats on top. Put the loaves into the oven, then lower the heat to 350 F. Bake 45-50 minutes, turning and rotating the pans halfway through.

Remove the loaves from the pans immediately and cool on a rack for at least 60 minutes before slicing.
