Hearty Oat Loaf Recipe

I like to serve wedges of this bread with stew or bean soup. My husband thinks it's a big treat—little does he know how easy it is to make. My children eat it for breakfast the next day with butter and strawberry jam. —Judi Havens of Denton, Texas
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 40 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
