Oat Nut Bread

A bread machine makes the process of preparing homemade bread so much easier. Toasted nuts enhance the flavor of this lovely loaf. —Diane Morrill, Grand Forks, North Dakota

    I made this; the only change I made was to use sesame seeds and walnuts only as my add-ins. (I also used whole, lactose-free milk.) While the bread tasted good, it starting getting very brown and was close to burnt at least 10 minutes before the cycle was finished. (I used the medium crust setting, as suggested.) I'm going to try it again, this time with walnuts and sunflower seeds. and I'm going to run it on the DOUGH cycle, then take it out and bake it in the oven in a loaf pan. I'm not sure what temperature or how long, but I guess I'll just keep checking it. I will say it tasted quite good!

    Love this recipe!! I made it with chopped toasted almonds instead of walnuts because that is all I had. This bread freezes well too!!
