  • 1 c Oats, old fashioned or quick cook
  • 1 c Hot water
  • 2 1/4 Dry yeast
  • 1/3 c Warm water
  • 1/2 c Pure maple syrup
  • 2 t Vegetable oil
  • 2 t salt
  • 3-1/2 c Flour, all purpose or bread flour
  • 1 Egg, lightly beaten, for topping
  • 1/4 c Oats, for topping


  • In a blender or food processor, add the oats, and pulse a few seconds. We want coarse crumbs, but not powder, so don’t overdo!
  • Add the hot water to the oats, and mix. Let them stand until they cool to luke warm.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook, add the yeast and warm water – let sit for a few minutes, then add the maple syrup, oil and salt.
  • Add the warm oats and the flour, then mix to a soft dough (adding more flour if necessary).
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and pliable – about 10 minutes
  • Form dough into a ball.
  • Grease a bowl, and add the dough to the bowl and cover.
  • Let rise in a warm place until doubled in size.
  • Punch down, then shape into a smooth round loaf.
  • Place loaf in a cast iron skillet, cover with a clean towel – and leave somewhere warm until the loaf doubles in size, about 45 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 350.
  • Brush loaf with beaten egg, and sprinkle with the oats.
  • Bake for 30 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and let cool before slicing. Devour.
