Bread Machine Oatmeal Bread — 22 Comments

    You are my go to for bread recipes.
    But I usually have to tweak the ingredients. It would help me immeasurably if you would put in ingredient weights along with volume measurements. I have a batch of oatbread in the machine as I type and things seem quite wet.

    • Hi Charle, My guess would be that it won’t work out. I think the bread will be hard. You can try it though. If the bread is too hard, you can always turn it into bread pudding.

      I have made milk bread without oil and that’s worked. The bread tasted fine, but we freeze our bread and that didn’t work as well.

  2. Do you know of a recipe with a higher ratio of oats and/or oat flour to bread/or/AP flour? I know oats dont have the gluten, and that’s kind of essential for bread, but I’d like to try recipes with more oat flour.

  3. Am I suppose to grind the oats for this recipe? The picture doesn’t look to have the oats on outside and my kids wouldn’t eat it anyway if dried on top.

  4. My daughter loves this bread for sandwiches. However, I always have to add more water because my bread starts making noise because the dough is too dry. I probably had at least 1/2 to 2/3 c. or water total.

  5. Hi! Thank you for this recipe, it is soooo good! I added dried fruit and pecans and a little honey and the results are amazing.


  6. Hi, I put all the ingredients in the right order, I have the same bread machine as you, I checked after 10 minutes to see if it was a ball but everything was as I left if when I closed the lid, I turned everything off, and started the machine a second time, and still after ten minutes it looks like it is not kneaded at all? Is it because it takes longer than 10 minutes? What could be wrong? I don’t know what to do and hate to lose all those ingredients. Please help.

    • Hey Carmen, when you pop the top to look at the bread don’t turn the machine off. Just open up the lid while it’s working.

      Since you did turn the machine off, it may be starting the whole cycle over again. If that’s the case, it should start up again after the preheat cycle is done. That takes around half an hour.
