  • 2 ½ teaspoon active dry yeast (mixed with ½ cup warm water and set aside for five minutes)
  • 2 cups whole-wheat flour
  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup
  • ½ cup turbinado sugar (or any sugar)
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 ½ cups hot water
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  • Mix the oats, maple syrup, sugar, oil, cinnamon, salt and water in a large bowl or in the bowl of a stand mixer and let it sit for about 10 minutes or until it's lukewarm
  • Add the yeast and water mixture and the flour and knead into a smooth dough by hand for about 10 minutes, or 7 minutes in the stand mixer. If the dough is too loose, add a little more flour.
  • Place the dough in a large, oiled bowl, turning over once to coat the top with oil. Cover the top of the bowl with a kitchen towel or plastic wrap and let it rise in a warm spot for about an hour to 90 minutes or until the dough has doubled.
  • Divide the dough into two and shape each half into an oval, tucking the seams underneath. Place each half in greased, standard-sized loaf pans (around 9 X 5 inches, although a slight variation in sizes doesn't really matter).
  • Cover loosely with a kitchen napkin or oiled plastic wrap and let the loaves rise for 90 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 360 degrees about half an hour before baking. Place the loaves in the oven and bake for 33 minutes until the tops are golden-brown.
  • Remove to a rack, cool for 15 minutes, then unmold the breads. If they stick a bit, run a knife along the sides of the loaf to dislodge it from the pan.
  • Cool thoroughly before slicing.
