Wheat Oatmeal Quick Bread

This bread goes together just like making a quick bread.  Add some ingredients, knead a bit (in the bowl), let rise for 30 minutes and bake for 20 and you have bread!  Thanks, Taryn, for a delicious recipe.

Wheat Oatmeal Quick Bread - Adapted from Taryn

4 1/2 C flour (mix of flours of your choosing)
2 T sugar
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking soda
4 1/2 tsp. yeast
2 C milk (or water)
1/2 C whole wheat flour (Yes, this is in addition to above)
1/2 C quick cook oats
1/2 C wheat germ (or more oats)

Lightly grease 2 loaf pans, and sprinkle with cornmeal (optional).

Then, combine 3 1/2 C flour, sugar, salt, baking soda and yeast.  Stir well. 

Heat milk until it's 120 degrees F.  Add to the flour mixture and stir until moist. 

Stir in remaining 1 C flour mix, whole wheat flour, wheat germ and oats.  I ended up having to knead this (in the bowl) a few times to get all the flour mixed in well.

Place bread in the loaf pans.  Cover, and allow to rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes. 

Bake at 400 for ~25 minutes until lightly browned. 

Remove bread from the pan and allow it to cool completely before wrapping to freeze, or storing in an airtight container. 

This recipe makes 2 loaves -- you can easily freeze one of the loaves for later, or you can split the recipe in half and just make one loaf.
