Ingredients

Instructions

  • Mix the yeast in a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, with the sugar and 2 tbsp of warm water. Set aside for the yeast to activate.
  • Place the oats in a bowl and pour the remaining water over them. Set aside for 20 minutes to soften the oats.
  • After 20 minutes, add the oats to the yeast mixture along with the applesauce, maple syrup and oil. Mix everything.
  • Add the flours, salt and cinnamon and knead until the dough comes together. You want a rather stiff dough. Add some more all-purpose flour if the dough is too wet.
  • Remove the dough to the platform or a flat surface and knead briefly by hand. Form a smooth ball and place in an oiled bowl, turning over once to coat the top with oil.
  • Cover with a plastic bag or a kitchen towel and let it rise in a warm place for 2 hours.
  • After 2 hours have passed, turn out the dough on the platform, knead slightly to deflate, and form into a loaf. Oil a loaf pan, sprinkle the bottom with some cornmeal, and place the loaf in it.
  • Brush some soymilk or spray some oil on top and sprinkle a few oats. Press down slightly so they adhere to the loaf.
  • Let the bread rise for 1 hour and 30 minutes, until the top domes over the loaf pan. Bake in a preheated oven set at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, dome some aluminum foil over the top of the bread and continue baking for another 25 minutes.
  • Remove to a rack and unmold when the pan is cool enough to handle. Let the bread cool thoroughly on a rack.
  • Slice and eat.
