This hearty bread features the yummy flavor of maple. It makes a delicious toast for breakfast and even even tastier bread for sandwiches.

  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
  • 1 1/3 cups warm water (110-115 degrees)
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 1/2 cups  flour
  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons old-fashioned oats
Place oats in a blender or food processor and process oats for 5-10 seconds, until coarsely chopped. Pour chopped oats and boiling water to a small bowl. Let stand until mixture cools to approximately 115 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in 1/3 cup warm water. Add syrup, oil, salt, oat mixture and 2 cups flour and beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
Turn onto floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic(8-10 minutes).  Place in an oiled bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Shape into a flattened 9-in. round loaf. Place in a greased 9-in. round baking dish. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Brush with egg white; sprinkle with oats. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to a wire rack to cool.
