  1. How much salt do you use? I had good luck with 1/2 tsp but wondered what it actually should be. Thanks! Love your site. 😋

  2. What size pans are you using ?


  3. What kind of flour do you use? I didn’t know if it mattered–white or bread? Or, whole wheat. Want to make it, just like to know which you suggest. Thank you!!


  4. I halved the recipe and made it in my brad machine. It is a Zojirushi that has 2 paddles and a pan that has similar dimensions to an ordinary loaf an, rather than a loaf pan on its side like many bread machines. It was great and I’m about to make it again. It’s super simple and lightly sweet. I never write reviews, but this recipe deserves one.

  5. Hi! I made this bread for the first time but it comes out hard it’s like it didn’t rise. But I actually rise it overnight then bake it in the morning. Then i made it again i bought a new yeast but this time it rise a little bit then when im done baking it was hard again and it taste weird. I was wondering what i did wrong..help please


    • I have a feeling that you didn’t let the oats cool off enough. I actually break out a meat thermometer when I’m making bread to make sure nothing is hot enough to kill the yeast. Boiling water is clearly really hot. It took my oats/water nearly 1/2 hour to cool enough to make the bread–but that’s just my guess.

    OMG this was delish.. I did make a few changes. I made mine in my Kitchen Aide.
    I used honey instead of brown sugar. My husband told me not to lose this recipe. It is to be made more than once a year. That is a big deal. Thank you again.
