Most “oatmeal breads” are lacking in the amount of oatmeal included. This recipe uses four cups oatmeal, one cup wheat germ, and always unbleached flour.

Mix together boiling water, oats, molasses, butter, wheat germ, salt, and brown sugar. When cool, add yeast and about 8 cups unbleached flour. Knead well. Let rise, covered, in greased bowl until doubled. Shape into 4 large loaves or 6 small loaves and let rise again in greased pans. Bake at 350 degrees F about 45 minutes or until nicely browned. Brush with melted butter to keep crust soft.
