Homemade Country Oatmeal Bread for the Bread Machine

A hearty, delicious bread recipe from Red Star Yeast. I adapted this recipe by halving the ingredients and using my bread machine. For the non-bread machine method, visit this link for Country Oatmeal Bread on their website.


  • 2 1/4 teaspoons Active Dry Yeast
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 Tablespoons water
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons butter melted and cooled
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup Quick Oats
  • 1 1/2 cups bread flour
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 Tablespoon Quick Oats for topping


  • Place all ingredients but the Quick Oats for topping into your bread machine. Select the dough cycle and start.
  • Once the dough cycle is complete, remove the dough and place it in a greased 9x5x2 loaf pan. Set in a warm place, cover, and allow to rise until double in size.
  • Brush loaf with water and sprinkle Quick Oats across the top of the loaf.
  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Bake loaf 25-30 minutes until lightly browned and bread sounds hollow when tapped. Remove from pans to wire rack to cool.
