Ingredients

  • 2 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 1/2 cup quick rolled oats
  • 2 tbsp molasses
  • 2 tbsp dry milk
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour {can use bread flour}
  • 3 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 3/4 tsp salt

Instructions

  • Dissolve yeast and molasses in warm water and let proof until foamy- about 5 minutes.
  • Add remaining ingredients, leaving the flour as the last addition. You'll want the dough to be slightly sticky, so make sure to add the flour slowly. You might only need 3 cups of whole wheat flour if the dough looks like it's getting too firm.
  • Knead the dough until it is soft and elastic, about 5 minutes. Place it in a bowl sprayed with cooking spray. Cover bowl and let sit in a warm place until dough has doubled in size, or about an hour. I let mine sit in a warm oven being as it's too cold on my kitchen counter. You can do that too by turning your oven on 350 ° for 1 minute, then turning it off and placing the bowl inside the oven.
  • Punch down dough and knead lightly. Roll out until dough is about 1/2 inch thin. Cut strips using a pizza cutter. Roll strips and place seam side down on a greased cookie sheet. I normally just do my best rolling out a rectangle, then just cutting strips. Allow to rise for 30-40 minutes.
  • Knead until dough is soft and elastic, about 5 minutes. Place in a bowl sprayed with cooking spray. Cover bowl and let sit in a warm place until dough has doubled in size, or about an hour. I let mine sit in a warm oven being as it's too cold on my kitchen counter.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes. Serve warm with butter and enjoy.
