  • 2 cups — Bread Flour.
  • 1 package (1/4 oz.) — Red Star Platinum
  • 1 ½ tsp — Salt
  • 1 cup — Water
  • 4 TBSP — Molasses
  • 2 TBSP — Vegetable Oil
  • 1/2 cup — Quick rolled oats
  • 1 cup — Whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup — Walnuts, chopped
  • Egg, water and rolled oats for topping

Oven 375°F
Makes 1 Loaf or 9 Rolls

In large mixing bowl, combine 1 ¼ cups bread flour, yeast and salt; blend well. Heat 1 cup water, molasses, vegetable oil and rolled oats until warm (120°-130°F). Add to flour mixture. Blend at low speed until moistened; beat 3 minutes at medium speed. By hand, gradually stir in whole wheat flour, nuts and enough remaining bread flour to make a firm dough. Knead on floured surface 5-8 minutes or until dough is smooth and elastic. Use additional flour if necessary. Place dough in lightly oiled bowl and turn to grease top. Cover; let rise in warm place about 15 – 20 minutes.

Turn dough onto lightly floured surface; punch down to remove air bubbles. Roll or pat dough to a rectangle, approximately 14×7. Starting with shorter side, roll up tightly, pressing dough into roll with each turn. Pinch edges and ends to seal. Place in a greased 8 x 4-inch loaf pan. Cover; let rise until indentation remains after lightly touching the side of the loaf, about 30-40 minutes. Combine egg and 1 tablespoon water; brush top of loaf. Sprinkle with rolled oats. Bake in preheated 375°F oven 30 to 40 minutes. Remove from pan; cool.

*Baker’s tip: This recipe makes wonderful dinner rolls or a round loaf of bread. To make pan rolls, divide dough into 9 rolls and place them in a greased 8-inch square pan. To make a round loaf, shape into a round loaf and place on a greased cookie sheet. Proceed as above.
