Ingredients

  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1-1/4 cups boiling water
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 to 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup toasted wheat germ
  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 cup sunflower kernels
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/4 teaspoon cold water
  • 4 teaspoons sesame seeds

Directions

Place oats in a small bowl; add boiling water, honey and butter. Let stand until mixture cools to 120°-130°, stirring occasionally.
In a large bowl, combine 2 cups all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, wheat germ, yeast and salt. Beat in oat mixture until blended. Stir in sunflower kernels and enough remaining flour to form a stiff dough (dough will be sticky).
Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
Punch dough down; turn onto a lightly floured surface. Divide into four portions; shape into 8-in. x 2-in. loaves. Place on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
Beat egg yolk and cold water; brush over loaves. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. With a sharp knife, cut slits in tops of loaves.
Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 4 loaves (8 slices each).
