Tips for baking Oatmeal Maple + Molasses Bread:

  • You don’t need to proof the yeast and there is no kneading involved, so as far as breads go this oatmeal molasses bread is quick and easy to mix up.
  • Scrape the dough from the bowl onto a lightly floured surface, to incorporate the final cup or two of flour. This will be the only kneading you’ll need to do for this recipe.
  • If the dough is feeling too sticky to manage, you can add up to 1/2 cup of extra flour.
  • Boost the nutritional value of this bread by substituting 2 cups of all-purpose flour with whole wheat flour.
